What makes Pipeline unlike any other wave?
Everything about and for me I live here on the north shore so it’s my backyard.
Who is the greatest Pipeline surfer of all time?
There is to many amazing ones. But honestly Kelly slater has proven himself over and over and over again not just going pipeline but also backdoor and at every possible peak out there. Some surfers only stick to their peak that they are comfy at but I see slater comfortable any where on the reef.
Who is the best surfer at Pipeline right now?
Still Kelly Slater! But after he leaves I’d say Barron Mamiya.
What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?
It’s every pro surfers dream, I think we would all be speechless to achieve this goal.
Is there an advantage to being a goofy or regular footer at Pipeline?
I think with the level of surfing these days being either stance is equal. Surfers have so many ways to approach this beautiful wave.
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.
A roll in from second reef on a small board, do a big down carve cutty and set up for a big scoop into a big pit then get blown out and do a huge straight air or even a big death floater would be sick!!!
If you had Pipeline with 3 others, who would you prefer? (family not included)
Kaulana Apo, Kelly slater, Jack Robinson.
