Apparently a shoe company owns the brand pipe masters and has changed the format
not a wct event anymore That's a turn up
Yeah I think they are trying to increase the loading of airs on the scores also. I don't know they call it Pipeline for a reason.
Yeah I think I read it on swellnet. TRipley crown may be a bit fairer if the crew who are involved with the first two comps get a crack at pipe. Either way if it's on the television I'll be watching
The Vans format is a blatant rip off from the Da Hui backdoor shootout
And from all reports there was no conversation with the Rothman family who came up with the format
Apparently no JJF/Slater or Medina in the comp
But Craig Anderson got an invite - Bring on the Hypto Krypto at pipe.
$100k for the winner
I see there is two comps at pipe WSL have thier version of pipe masters as well. Locals will be loving it.....
Some good waves for it, interesting format.
The ladies even got some deepish barrels, Carissa Moore got a ripper." revolutionising wimins surfing rave rave overkill" but it was good
