What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?

Its the sickest things in surfing to win at Pipe.

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

I wish I could be goofy foot at Pipe haha. But being able to go backdoor frontside is so sick.

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

A big carve after a big barrel is really sick. If you could do a huge power wrap that is really sick. Its hard to do it because theres so much power and speed.

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