What makes Pipeline unlike any other wave?

Pipeline is unlike any other wave because it is so beautiful and dangerous at the same time. It is also the only wave Ive ever surfed where you can wait hours for one ride making every ride out there special.

Who is the greatest Pipeline surfer of all time?

Jamie O'Brien

Who is the best surfer at Pipeline right now?

John John Florence

What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?

A Vans Pipe Masters title would be a dream come true. This event has such an incredible history and Im beyond grateful for the opportunity to compete in it.

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

I think Pipeline and Backdoor give equal opportunities to both goofy and regular footers.

We want you to remix an old classic. What turn do you best think suits the wave?

I would love to dreamy section where I could do a Tom Carroll style lay back snap.

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

I would pick Myles Padaca, Shane Dorian, and Bethany Hamilton
