Another day, another killer session as Team Marley member Mason Ho captured his first ASP victory in November at the HIC Pro in Oahu. The native Hawaiian is the 30th surfer to have his name added to the HIC Pro winner’s cup, a list that includes none other than Mason’s father and fellow Team Marley member, Michael Ho.
Following in the footsteps of Micheal, a four-time winner at Sunset Beach, Mason certainly has the pedigree and style to be championship surfer. He topped veteran rider Pancho Sullivan in the finals by throwing down a huge 16.26 run and had a sick single score run of 8.93 points.
While history wasn’t on his side at Vans Triple Crown, Mason managed to get off on some big waves during the first round at Haleiwa Ali’i Beach. At the conclusion of November, Mason now has his first ASP win in tow and will have his eyes set on winning more pro competitions. Congrats Mason on the win and keep killing it out in the surf!
Bonus: Mason has an awesome blog with his friends Kenoi and Rory called Burger In Paradise. Aside from awesome footage of modern day surfing, Mason tends to post lots of old school footage of his dad. Check out some of our favorite video posts below and head over to his section of the blog:
