Making the Cut: Episode 4, Haleiwa

In the fourth episode of Making the Cut, WSL commentator Ross Williams explains why a handful of Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour surfers need to do well in the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing: Their jobs are on the line. For CT surfers ranked below No. 22, the Triple Crown is more than just a warmup for Pipe, it's a way to catch up on Qualifying Series points that can be a backup route to requalification.

Williams also chats with newly crowned champ John John Florence, who was also gunning for points and prestige at Haleiwa -- but not for the same reason as the other guys. "I'm not here to rain on anyone's parade," said Florence. "This is my home break. I want to win here more than anything."
