Live footage of the inaugural event of the World Surfing League (WSL), the Volcom Pipe Pro 2018, was captured on the Red Weapon with the Monstro 8KVV sensor equipped with Fujinon Premier PL 25-300mm and 19-90mm Cabrio zoom lenses for Red Bull TV, in addition to Hawaii and Australian cable channels.

The event also served as a real-world demo day with shooters from Red Bull, the WSL, and Uncle Toads Media Group trying out the new camera sensor and lens combination. The Volcom Pipe Pro is the inaugural event for the WSL, brings together the world’s top pipeline surfers at the Hawaiian island of Oahu, where they test their skills at the world-famous Banzai Pipeline.

Upwards of 75 local and visiting video professionals also received hands-on time with the Red Digital Cinema camera and Fujifilm Fujinon zooms during an open house at Hawaii Camera on February 11.
