BILLABONG PIPE MASTERS 2010 – PIPELINE, Hawaii – The crown jewel in the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, the Billabong Pipe Masters, will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2010. The world's longest-running professional surfing event will be staged as always, at the famed Banzai Pipeline on Oahu's North Shore.
1978 World Surfing Champion Wayne Bartholomew (who has both competed at Pipe and been a former ASP President) summed it up succinctly:
“Pipeline is the ultimate arena and the Pipe Masters the most prestigious title on tour”
PIPELINE MASTERS 2010 - FLORES STEALS CROWN
PIPELINE, Oahu/Hawaii (Thursday, December 16, 2010) – Jeremy Flores (FRA) 22, took out the Billabong Pipe Masters over Kieren Perrow (AUS), 33, in a come-from-behind victory in four-to-six foot (1.5 metre) backdoor barrels. It’s the Frenchman’s first career ASP World Tour victory.
SLATER & MACHADO DISCUSS ICONIC HIGH FIVE
At the 1995 Pipeline Masters Kelly Slater and Rob Machado exchanged a high five that more-or-less exchanged the World Title that year. In an iconic moment for the sport and both surfers, Machado chose to slap palms with Slater mid-wave instead of claiming priority during a critical moment of their semi-final clash. Do you think Machado has any regrets?
TOP 10 HIGHLIGHTS - PIPELINE MASTERS - DAY 1
Day 1 of the Billabong Pipe Masters was far from a let down. With airs, barrels and the birth of the late Andy Irons' son, it was an action packed and special day. Above is our TOP 10 highlights from the day.
ANDY IRONS VS KELLY SLATER - PIPELINE MASTERS 2006
PIPELINE, Hawaii (14 December, 2006) – It’s regarded as the greatest final in the Pipeline Masters’ 40-year history. The final of the 2006 Rip Curl Pro Pipeline Masters saw Andy Irons steal victory from long-time rival Kelly Slater in the dying moments via a perfect 10. It was a high-scoring affair between the pair and a sensational battle. Was it the best final of all time?

BILLABONG PIPE MASTERS 2010 | ONLY ON THE NORTH SHORE..
Everyone knows that 16 yr old Taylor Wright took home the Women's O’Neill World Cup, and that Raoni Monteiro was the first Brazilian to win at Sunset in 20 years. But there’s some things that you just don’t know unless you’re on the ground...
BILLABONG PIPE MASTERS 2010 | BRUCE IRONS' ANDY FACTOR
PIPELINE, HAWAII; Anytime surfer Bruce Irons dons a Pipe Masters jersey he’s a potent danger-man to anyone unlucky enough to land him in a heat. With the recent and tragic passing of his older brother, the whole world will be watching his 2010 Pipeline Masters campaign - there’s a fairytale story in the making. Will this be a source or power or pressure for the 31-year-old Hawaiian?
BILLABONG PIPE MASTERS 2010 | PIPE HYPE
PIPELINE, HAWAII; Kelly Slater and Dane Reynolds; perhaps the two biggest names in surfing today, put on an absolute clinic at last year’s Billabong Pipeline Masters. With a week out from the 2010 fixture, will it be these two who again light it up at pipeline?
BILLABONG PIPE MASTERS 2010 | PIPELINE MASTERS DVD REVIEW
PIPELINE, HAWAII; Banzai pipeline ridden back in the early 60's is today seen as the event of all events in the ASP world tour. So where did it all start? Right back before pipeline was even an event, the break Banzai was always looked to heavy and fast to ride on the equipment they were riding at the time. The boards that worked at Waimea and Sunset didn't sit in the pocket properly for the hollow pipeline break. The film shows the early guys having a go on their equipment which has you wondering where we would be today if board evolution never occurred.
