Not very good at Photoshop. But at the same time, lots of post-processing is not a true representation of reality.

Assuming this is the "official" thread, here is my initial team thrown together. Worst FS year ever!



Slater: No explanation
CJ: Been on a roll somewhat
JJF: Ummm yeah
J-flo: Nervous. He does great when he's not on my team. Giving him one last shot
Pistachio: Familiar territory and he's hungry
Michel: Not expecting great but I think he'll get a solid result
Damo: Needs a result to qualify. He was amping at Sunset. He wants it
Zeek: Gotta bank on him continuing his streak.

Too much North in this swell over the first few days of the waiting period! Backdoor might pull in a few but anything over 345* will focus on Off The Wall through Rockpiles.

Maybe they should think about testing Mick again.
I doubt he would get into a "physical altercation" with event security in Hawaii.

Better waves a few hundred yards to both sides of Pipe this morning. Ehukai Sandbar was like perfect, glassy 6-foot California beach break when the contest started running.

Three guys out. Literally. It sat absolutely empty from sun up until my friends and I swam out. We were puzzled and spent a good forty-five minutes watching to figure out what was wrong with it.

I'm sure there were better waves a lot of other places, but it will be a long time before I score absolutely empty conditions like that again. Hiding in plain sight of hundreds of people on the beach.

Oh don't pay attention to shackwell. He just spouts without looking stuff up.

Kolohe is safe and can't be knocked off.
Brett could stay on tour. It depends how Dusty, Yadin, and Pat Gudang do.

But, he was right with the whole Damo thing. Also, Kieren Perrow is off the tour too, but I don't think that too big a surprise.

Yeah him too but Danes style really doesnt fit contest. He would rather blow a score on trying a big air, rather than milking a wave into shore to get points. I like the idea, but so far it hasn't paid off for him. I enjoy his video parts in the meantime.




Doesn't he get a check for 200k a month from quikie? I'd say it's paid off better for him than any other surfer in history.

All the round 4 heats depends on who wins/loses in Round 3. if there is a big upset - for example - the seeding of where someone ends up in Round 4 could change.

Perhaps, but assuming he get's past CJ, he'll face Yadin in quarters. He would have faced JJF in the quarters had he come in second in RD4 and won his RD5 heat. This is a HUGE turn of events for Mick, and significantly increases his odds of getting to the semis (and winning the Title). Time for the Slater camp to give CJ some "incentives"!

100% on Purpose.
But it was to get Yadin rather than John John

Unfortunately for him it won't matter and he will be left on the beach rooting for JJ to knock out the king after Ceeeeej buries him next round in bombing pipe.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/11/13 05:29 AM

CJ's hurt, and unless it's a Pipe-only day, Mick will easily advance. Julian Wilson is too much of a wild card at Pipe -- could drop 2 10s if he's feeling frisky and lands an air or two. Was it an interference on purpose? I think Mick saw a chance to win the heat at the last second and just went for it.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/11/13 02:00 PM

Mick’s destiny is in his own hands. He lost his non-elimination heat this afternoon to John Florence, meaning he now needs to win two further heats to win the world title. John John stood as the guy most likely to scupper Mick’s world title. If they’d both kept winning they’d have met in the quarters… meaning Mick would have to beat John John Florence at Pipeline to win the world title. Those are words no Australian wants to be hearing.

But Mick changed his destiny in the dying throes of his heat this afternoon. Already beaten, he dropped in on John John on the last wave of the heat, scoring an interference and dropping from second to third. It seemed an act of frippery, a bird flipped to the universe with the heat already lost. But that drop-in might just be butterfly wings flapping in the Amazon. It meant that instead of surfing against Julian Wilson and John John – young, bristling, Pipe savvy, very ready for the Mick and Kelly era to end – standing between him and the world title, Mick now needs to beat an injured CJ Hobgood and a wide-eyed Yadin Nicol who’s into the quarters for the first time in his career.

Too bad we don't get two days of macking swell this contest.
They never should have ran the other day.
Kirren was injured and not on site so Joel was the de-facto surfers rep for the call.

Kelly and Mick both told him they were opposed to running.
The powers that be were intent on getting in a full day and Joel said nothing.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/12/13 10:42 PM

Gotta agree with Truth. I saw some serious 3rd reef pipe (from the beach) last late December and it wasn't as heavy as you would think.
A little smaller might be more dramatic.

I'm on a plane with kiddies in- tow to Maui on Saturday. If I see k1 I'll try to steal his oar.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/12/13 10:48 PM

Remember that mick was one of the guys out at cloudbreak that day and he was charging. I don't think he's afraid to roll into second or third reef pipe, stall and get a big one. He's also more than capable of taking off under the lip when it's smaller.

Don't matter though. He gonna be mad when he looses to 000

Posted By: silentbutdeadly

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 11:05 AM

The morning show indicated they were going to monitor the buoys and there would be a chance they'd run Friday afternoon since the first part of the swell will be west and perhaps not out of control?
Posted By: kelly7873

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 12:25 PM

I figure they need 6 hours to finish the contest, so they need to start by 11am. The NW buoy started showing 7' 14 sec at 3am. At 14 seconds it's 12 hours to the N.S. At 5am it's 10' 16 sec at just over 10 hours of travel time the swell should be hitting hard by 3pm maybe showing by 1am. That said I think if they even have 4' waves at 11 they will call the contest on. If they don't run the contest on Saturday they should leave the web cast on like they did at Cloudbreak.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 02:55 PM

Lay day for today.

Buoys are now 12.5' at 14 secs. Steady uptick for last few hours. The only question now is how big will it get before it tops out and how quickly will it drop.

12 foot, west swell Pipe would be nuts tomorrow.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 03:59 PM

It looks like there is still a bunch of sand on the beach at Pipe


How much of that will be washed away tonight?
Posted By: craigj532

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 04:07 PM

A lot of the sand will be washed away overnight, and the last few times I've surfed Pipe this year, there hasn't been too much backwash. It's actually good that they'll have about 12-15 hours of big, west swell to move a lot of the sand away before they fire things up in the morning.

I'm sure this afternoon will be a zoo as the swell builds. To me, these fast-rising, super-crowded swells are the absolute scariest time to be in the water at Pipe.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 04:52 PM

Hey Sponge
I was watching the re-broadcast and it looked like you sitting on the sand next to the check in booth when Kaimana was getting advice from Pancho.

Was that you sitting there with the big bandage on your foot?
Who was the guy in the check in booth giving out the jersey's he looks familiar too..

look like they were they allowing boogers to surf the inside during the contest and at off the wall where some of the guys were pulling out at.

I noticed Dave Skedelski (Surfco) working at the check in booth at the Haleiwa and Sunset contest but did not see him at the Pipe.

How do they decide who helps out or not?

Also were those hawaii flag vans slip ons they were selling at the sunset pro? I don't see them on sale any where else..
Posted By: craigj532

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/13/13 05:11 PM

They were selling the Hawaiian flag slip-ons and some Kapa print slip-ons in the beach park during the Pipemasters, too. They were going fast. They said they were limited edition and not available anywhere else. $40, I think. Not sure if they'll have any left for tomorrow, but I could check for you if you want.

I've been asked to leave everytime I've tried to bodysurf the inside during the contest.

I think that tomorrow they switch to man-on-man heats without the overlapping format, which means that a LOT of really, really great waves will go unsurfed.

That was Neal sitting there with the bandage on his foot. The guy at the check-in booth is Aaron Walters. I used to compete against him in the NSSA contest back in the early 90's (bodyboard division). Super cool guy.

First second reef set of the swell just came through. Everyone in the water got caught inside. That's why I hate surfing Pipe on a rapidly building swell like this.

Swell actually just kicked up a notch to 12.5' at 17 seconds on the outer buoys. 7+' at 20 seconds at Waimea Buoy.

At 5:30, parking was alread overfilled with cars liningthe road in both directions. Hundreds of people on the beach in the dark. Many many people camped overnight. It's a zoo already. No moon, so still too dark to see. Whispered rumor is that the general vibe is that it's too big to run. May put it on hold for a few hours.

Plenty guys already changed and waiting for first light to paddle out.

yeah, i've tried many times with past contests to watch after the event is over. trying to pull up heat review without actually looking at the scores or seeing who advances is pretty much impossible.

" I just know I gotta beat the socks off Mick for the win. They always make the underdog work harder, you saw that last year when me and Damo had Joel. It was close and the judges gave the nod to Joel, without a doubt. That is one of the factors why Mick dropped in on JJ (John John) in that final heat."

Awful judging. I legitimately think you get points for claims.

C.J.s 6.83 was the best ridden wave of the heat.

One second they score on skill, next the wave. Usually the choice depends on who's on the wave.

Not even close to a 9.5 big wave but it was a safe barrel. Still better than an 8 though so he deserved it. Only problem is I guess you'd have to evaluate how much cj was underscored compared to how much mick was overscored.

going by the number of waves ridden so far, and the scores, top 5% is accurate. but that's beside the point, they aren't judging the whole day in advance, they're judging each heat. this has been so well established contest after contest, yet people continue to bltch "this guy's 9 in round one should have been a 7 because that guy's 7 in round four was just as good". Fanning charged harder and won because it paid off at the last minute. there are other people in the water, time to move on.

C.J. was playing it safe because he had the skill/sight to exit the wave before the closeout? lol.

I'm fine with rewarding charging more, but there's no consistency. They alter between rewarding the wave vs skill vs charging depending on the person on the wave.

that last wave would have been a mid 8 if yadin had gotten it. mick's board hardly disappeared for more than a second. it was obvious he would get the score though with all the claiming going on. the judges are suckers for emotional claims, apparently.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/14/13 07:09 PM

Not a Mick hater at all.
Heavy drops should always be scored higher then roll in's at Pipe. Rolling in takes a great read but the drop is so radical. Nothing scarier/more radical then looking down at a beyond vertical face.
Mick has some of the best frontside surfing in the world but this just shows the faults of contest surfing. Again the stand outs don't win sh*t. Contest surfing needs to be more about peak performance and not sustained performance.
Pipe Masters and J.O.B wasn't even in it? Mick would have probably drew him.
F*ck it though, Mick seems like a good guy so congrats, he just was far from the stand out surfer this year.
Just get Dorian back in the booth so this fun to watch. Dorian is the f*cking man.

i haven't missed anything guy, i've been riding zero, one, two, three, and four fins as long as i've been surfing. for people who like surfboards, board design, design in general, it's been there all along. people who only ride what the pros are riding deserve to miss what they miss, just like they deserve to pay $200 for shoes because Jordan or Lebron are wearing them.

i think this was where i was disappointed as well, both of his big scores were pretty soft roll in drops, though he finished them well with loooong tubes. the elevator, heart in mouth drop is more fun to watch, but there goes that opinion thing again.

Heavy drops should always be scored higher then roll in's at Pipe. Rolling in takes a great read but the drop is so radical. Nothing scarier/more radical then looking down at a beyond vertical face.
Mick has some of the best frontside surfing in the world but this just shows the faults of contest surfing. Again the stand outs don't win sh*t. Contest surfing needs to be more about peak performance and not sustained performance.
Pipe Masters and J.O.B wasn't even in it? Mick would have probably drew him.
F*ck it though, Mick seems like a good guy so congrats, he just was far from the stand out surfer this year.
Just get Dorian back in the booth so this fun to watch. Dorian is the f*cking man.





i think this was where i was disappointed as well, both of his big scores were pretty soft roll in drops, though he finished them well with loooong tubes. the elevator, heart in mouth drop is more fun to watch, but there goes that opinion thing again.




agreed!!! Mick should not have made it out of either heat on waves I could have surfed. Yadins foam ball rides and CJs elevator drop wayyy harder I may have died on those waves.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/14/13 07:45 PM

Im no great surfer but I have put in time out at Pipe.
10 to 12 foot days are better for the common surfer because the amount of good waves that are pulsing in. Insdiers, wide ones, deep ones, 2nd reefers, etc. The Heavies (like Kala and D. Ho) take the gems and some guys choose to roll in or whatever. Losers like me sit wide. The freaks (kelly, John John, Bruce, JOB, etc.) get the double ups. Those are the waves that come through that take a specific technique to ride. The barrels are much bigger, squarer and shallower. When you paddle for one you almost have to paddle straight down as hard as you can. Crazy. IMO one of the reasons JOB is so good out there (beside his freakish reflex and feel) is his freakish paddle speed and strength.
I still don't understand how guys live after being axed by the lips on those first reef double ups. Ill never forget straghting out on a foamy OTW wave and my fins hitting the reef.
Mick stuck to his strengths and surfed smart, so congrats.
BUT, if JOB or John got those waves he fell on....

my point was that the decision in Fanning's heat would bother him, and even Dorian said it did. i was wrong about him losing, but not about him standing up on everything that moves...damn there are some wild Kelly Slater nut huggers in here.

Mick's bottom turn alone was a 10... (take that with a grain of salt)


I can remember Slater after losing that heat in Hossegor (i think it was against Phil McDonald), Kelly was complaining about scores and he said that his bottom turn alone on that wave he caugh was a ten compared to Phil's waves...

So i'm sure Kelly can appreciate that bottom turn Mick just made before a great tuberide...

I am referring to the 9 months of rewarding robo surfer with a cornucopia of overscores and underscoring Slater. Did I mention questionable calls ( priority debacle at Teahupoo finals). Did Cardoso beat Kelly at rd 3 bells after Kelly got a legit barrel? The list goes on. They squashed his momentum at every opportunity.

i expect pretty much this, judging controversy wise. but i never expect this in terms of great waves ridden this well! awesome contest already. John John vs Slater would be a good ending, Parko would be cool too. commenting isn't complaining, i think Yadin got stuffed on his score so Fanning would have the chance to do the last minute heroics, but that doesn't change how good the event has been, for me anyhow.

Imagine if Fanning didn't pull that drop in interference in rd 4 and took 2nd place, having to face JJF in the quarters? I think he had a premonition that he would get crushed like he just did.
My point? A true champion doesn't run from a challenge but faces it head on to establish his legitimacy. Between the year of overscores, the HIGHLY questionable judging in his rd 5 and quarter's heat, this title will have an * on it.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/14/13 09:28 PM

1991, Glen Winton won on a 4 fin.
Larry Bertelmann, 1984, on the cover doing an air, way before Slater was on the scene.
Hmmm, yeah, 4 fins were made popular by Slater.
I would think it was actually Nathan who made them current.

A JJ and Kelly final will be epic.

A good final JJF vs KS.

Kelly doesnt have to prove himself no more, specially not in this new "ausie push" frenzy. A 7th Pipe win will be a record on its own

If Kelly wins the final he shouldn't come to the beach until Mick paddles out for a surf off.

I'm sure Mick doesn't want to win like this and go out like a little bitch.

There was a big, fat, eight-foot (four-foot Hawaiian) shark swimming around the lineup at Pipeline this morning. It didn't seem to care much about the Pipemasters or the word title.

It was super fun out there today, super mellow vibe for December, and it would've felt a little silly to try to assign scores to everyone's waves.

Pico, I don't know if you are paid by Adolf Fanning's camp but he was gifted that title. Underscores and overscores abound.
Yes he was the most consistent and boring surfer all year but if the emotion of the circumstances are going to be the deciding factor, they should have just given him the title before the first heat.

I predict that the new ASP man/boy on man/boy heats will include a Mum cam on split screen. Mum on Mum so to speak. Think of the drama that that will bring to the sport.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/16/13 04:26 PM

Here's my take on the last day of the Pipemasters, though I doubt anyone cares:

1. From the beach, I would've given Fanning a 10 for the wave against CJ in his R5 heat. Given the conditions up to that point, the wonkiness of the bigger sets in the morning, the fact that NOBODY had been actually making the big set waves to that point in the day, and the fact that he came out with the spit - I don't think you could ride a wave better.

2. Things seemed to settle down a bit at the spots around Pipe later in the morning. The sets seemed smaller, and the conditions became a bit more inviting. So, I decided to swim out to Pupukea and try to catch a couple. The rip was so bad that I had to jump in near the channel at Pipe in order to wind up at Pupukea. Right when I got almost all the way into the lineup at Pupukea proper was the exact moment that the set where Mick got his 9.7 came. It was a big set, and I was absolutely unaware of what was happening in the heat because I was trying like hell to not drown. I gave up on trying to dive deep, and just started going shallow and hoping I got pushed towards shore. It was not a good time. By the time I got to shore, recovered a bit, and made my way to the beach park, everyone was buzzing about Mick winning the title.

3. Having seen the replay many times since then, I agree the 9.7 seems a bit overscored. But it was a BIG set, Fanning rode it as perfectly as it could've been ridden, and we all know that waves score higher at the end of heat than they would've at the beginning.

4. I was pulling for John John, but there's NO WAY that wave at Backdoor would EVER score an 8. The wave was relatively small for the day, and that's just not going to cut it. He had to take it given the situation, but he got the right score.

5. Yesterday was as fun a day as possible at Pipe in the morning, before the rains came. And I needed it given how much my confidence (and everything else) was shaken on Saturday.

6. Two man heats at Pipeline are absolute and total bullshit.

how about when kelly paddled over to j.flores at chopes near the end of a heat and shook jf's hand, like "well done, you won", and then went and snuck another wave to try for the win when jermy's guard was down?

yes, and he subsequently and collectively got called out for it by industry bro-brahs and magazines alike. so why is it mick's "tactics" and highly questionable heats should be unmentionable?

Besides the crap judging it was a great contest to watch. The surfing level was just amazing. Yadin so deep and riding the foam ball, JJ making it look so so easy, Kelly airdropping into that one in the finals. Also, Kelly's Backdoor wave where he comes out of the first barrel, snaps under the lip back into a second cover up. That was one of the best looking turns I've ever seen. His surfing was way beyond everyone else, at 41. Remember when TC and Curren got around 30yo and they were considered old and is was time to retire?

Its about average. Do you think the person who wins the most stages of the Tour de France wins the tour? Nope. They generally lose so much time in the mountains.

Re: *** Official Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 *** - 12/16/13 09:31 PM

The bottom line is the most robotic, boring, mechanical surfer on tour won the title by mastering the system which included throwing his round four heat to avoid the dreaded JJF in the quarters. We saw how JJF decimated him in the semis so it was probably a wise move by the safety surfer. It only added insult to injury that Kelly beat JJF in the finals. I'm sure Mick wanted to take on JJF in the quarters but his mum most likely forbid him to do it.
Nonetheless, Kelly posted today that he would like us all to give it a rest so I will be officially congratulating White sparkler on his title.

I agree with the scoring in the CJ heat but I thought Yadin narrowly won his heat.


It's one thing when Dane or Kelly turns a chest high slop link into a high 8, but that was awesome seeing CJ fabricate scores in what looked like difficult surf to do it with juuuuuuust a hair more price payment than feebslop was really impressive.

Also the good backdoor surfers taking off straight down and into the cave and stopping.
