What makes Pipeline unlike any other wave?
Pipeline is a big, powerful barrel that is very dangerous, but the feeling you get when you make a good wave out there is like no other.
Who is the greatest Pipeline surfer of all time?
Gerry Lopez, Jamie O'Brien, John John Florence
Who is the best surfer at Pipeline right now?
John John Florence
What would a Vans Pipe Masters title mean to you?
To win an event at Pipeline with some of the best surfers in the world would mean everything to me. I am honored to be a part of this event and give Pipeline a go in this format.
Is there an advantage to being a goofy or regular footer at Pipeline?
I don't think there is much of an advantage. If you are positioned in the right spot of the wave, both could get just as barreled.
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.
There aren't many turns that suit Pipe, a Tom Carrol Snap and a big down carve or if you're really feeling up to it, you could do a massive air out there.
If you had Pipeline with 3 others, who would you prefer? (family not included)
I would pick either 3 of my best friends or 3 regular footers so I can get the left to myself.
