What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?

When I was 6 or 7 I came to the pipemasters and watched home town hero Bruce irons Win the pipe masters. It was like watching super hero’s battle it out in the ocean! From then on Pipe masters has been my number 1 Goal :person_bowing::tone_medium_light:‍♂️

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

I’d say regular footers have the advantage. They can slide down the face of those steep pipe waves and pump the breaks and can get going fast at back door to make those seemingly Unmakeable rights.

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.

Oh the old Tom carrol lay back jam!
