What makes Pipeline unlike any other wave?

It’s so scary but so perfect at the same time.

Who is the greatest Pipeline surfer of all time?

John John Florence

Who is the best surfer at Pipeline right now?

Barron Mamiya

What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?

Other than winning a world title, it’s my biggest dream.

Is there an advantage to being a goofy or regular footer at Pipeline?

I think being regular foot is an advantage, being goofy foot at backdoor sounds way too scary hahaha

We want you to remix an old classic. What turn do you best think suits the wave? Feel free to get creative in your thinking.

Mm I don’t know hahah, maybe a big backside close out turn at pipe.

If you had Pipeline with 3 others, who would you prefer? (family not included)

Me myself and I. Hahahaha
