Get Ready for the Billabong Pipe Masters
The Billabong Pipe Masters is the final stop of the Vans Triple Crown and the final event of the ASP Men’s World Tour. It represents the culmination of both series. And the Banzai Pipeline represents the perfect venue for the elite surfers taking part in the Billabong Pipe Masters to showcase their talent and skills.
The Banzai Pipeline is renowned for its perfect, heaving top-to-bottom barrels and its close proximity to shore and is considered one of the best waves on the planet. It is also one of the most dangerous waves on the planet and has claimed more lives than any other wave in the world, with an average of one fatality per year.
The Billabong Pipe Masters will also decide the 2012 ASP World. Joel Parkinson (AUS), 31, Kelly Slater (USA), 40, and Mick Fanning (AUS), 31 remain mathematically in the competition for the 2012 ASP World Title.
The Billabong Pipe Masters will take place between the 8th and 20th of December. Until we see the best riders on the planet surf the Banzai Pipeline, we invite you to take a look at the Billabong Pipeline Master 2012, In Memory of Andy Irons Teaser by Billabong.
