What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?

Anytime you can win at Pipe feels like one of surfings biggest accomplishments. It'd be amazing to win another Pipe Masters.

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

Both have advantages. Ultimately I dont think one outweighs the other.
