Why Kolohe Needs to Win the Quiksilver Pro

Kolohe needs to win the Quiksilver Pro this week and we're not just saying that because he's So Cal's favorite son on Tour. In fact we can say the same thing about Simpo or Pat Gudauskas or Dane Reynolds (when he's there). Kolohe needs to win because he simply needs to win. And this week would be perfect timing.

OK, so maybe that's a little too much to ask. But remember, he nearly won the Vans US Open a few months ago and that field was packed with WCT talent. Unfortunately no one remembers second place and the 2013 Vans US Open is as history as Tom Curren's 1990 World Title.

But what if he doesn't win this week? As if!! Just kidding. Ya never know. And if he doesn't everyone will still love him including us. We'll just expect him to win the next one, or the next one after that … but could he win at Pipe? Stranger things have happened and you don't want to discount a surfer of his level on any occasion.

Look, it's going to happen. In one of these events Kolohe's going to click and, bam, there he is, in the Top 16, then the Top 10 and maybe even the Top 5 looking down the barrel of a potential world title. You know he wants it… heck, so do we! But he's gotta getta win to get this party started … and this week would sure be nice. —Skip Snead
