Pipe Master may be the brand owned by Vans but when an unko who doesn’t know about all this buy this sell that mumbo jumbo calls someone a Pipe Master it means winning a full field against the top pros CT at Pipe champ.

Like Xerox but not as generic.

So anyone can identify as Pipe Master even if they havent won the Pipeline Masters contest? wait what thread is this...
Sure. Ogre identifies as someone who still surfs So why not?

So then you think Caity and Baron don’t deserve the title? No problem here.

The smaller and less complete field of the current vans comp just cheapens the ”pipe master” title then. It’d be weird that the more prestigious title of “official Pipeline Pro sponsored by Lexus Master” is the one you want but I guess it works.

I always thought the whole Triple Crown, Masters, World Cup, Hawaiian Open was kinda cheesy names. Bit from the rest of the sports world.

Surfers especially when the pro tour started were supposed to be the most imaginative and creative but they just copied names from horse racing, soccer and golf of all things.

I guess it shouldn’t have been a big surprise to me cause even as a young grom I knew Bertleman’s logos were from the Olympics and the
Coke stripe until he got a cease and desist. Even the T&C logo is Yin and Yang.

But 50 years of history makes that title iconic. They should buy the naming rights from Outrigger Canoe Club and bring back the Duke contest at Sunset.

My buddy from Vista used to always correct people about Joey Buran being from C-Bad. He had an odd chip on his shoulder about being a Vistanian.

Growing up, I was always led to believe he was from Oceanside.
Later, I thought he was from Carlsbad.
Then he moved to Arizona or wherever the good lord took him.
Later still, I'm led to believe he's from Vista.

Tri City it is

She is, but is a bit robotic.

I haven't really checked anything beyond the odd WSL clip.
Her barrel and some of her turns were some of the best backhand performances I've seen from the woman.
Much less awkward than Caroline.

I'm splitting hairs, but Caity still has times where she looks lightfooted and frail.
Caity is sick. I'm a fan, but I'm looking forward to her progressing.

If I remember correctly, that was in response to calling her, objectively, the best surfer out of her region. Ever.

so it's kinda fair.
Frosty said”Might be the best surfer to ever come out of Oceanside”

I would not say that is hyperbole. Her skills have matured since that statement and she has put them to the test this year with game changing success. No other Oceanside surfer has done that.
Complete geriatric fanboi, out.
