This year flew! The Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons, the third and final stop of the Vans Triple Crown and the final event of the 2013 ASP Men’s World Tour, is almost here.
Slated for Sunday, December 8th through Friday, December 20th, the Banzai Pipeline, or Pipe, is an iconic and historic wave that is often referred to as the best wave on the planet. Located off Ehukai Beach Park in Pupukea on Oahu’s famous North Shore, the Pipe is a surf reef break known for its perfect, heaving top-to-bottom barrels and its close proximity to shore, and is it the perfect wave for those willing to charge.
But, it’s also great surf watching for the spectators on the beach. And you’re in luck since Billabong is sponsoring a contest to win a trip to watch it live!
The trip includes airfare for 2, 3 nights hotel stay, and $400 spending money.
It would be so sweet to watch this live! As we know, last year, Parko not only won the contest but also the World Title, in a gripping duel with 11 times surfing champ Kelly Slater.
ASP WCT surfers’ year-end rankings are based off their top eight finishes from the 10 ASP WCT events in 2013. Mick Fanning is the current rankings leader on the ASP WCT. Here are the top 5:
1) Mick Fanning (AUS)
2) Kelly Slater (USA)
3) Joel Parkinson (AUS)
4) Jordy Smith (ZAF)
5) Taj Burrow (AUS)
Who do you think will take it all this year? Continue reading
This past Monday marked Day 1 of the ISA World Longboard Championship (WLC) with firing waves that ranged from 6-8 feet at the world-class, left pointbreak in Huanchaco, Trujillo, on the northern coast of Peru.
The world’s best longboarders from 22 countries are competing for gold. Each National Team consists of up to 2 Open Men, 1 Open Women and 1 Junior Under-18, plus Team Officials.[caption id="attachment_3717" align="alignleft" width="590" caption="USA - Taylor Jensen.

The confirmed countries are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, Great Britain, Hawaii, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Uruguay, USA, and Venezuela.
Longboarding has traditionally been included in the ISA World Surfing Games since 1988, but due to its growing popularity, this is its first stand-alone World Longboard Championship.
Huanchaco is known as the cradle of surfing in Latin America. The waves at Huanchaco allow the surfers to perform multiple maneuvers in a ride including critical turns, big cut backs, huge floaters and nose rides.
Remarked ISA President Fernando Aguerre, “Peru is known for its ideal surfing conditions with consistent swell and great weather. The surfers will be practicing on the long lefts in preparation for the World Championship. Surf in the head high to overhead range is expected for the start of the competition. As I like to remind all athletes, even though only some of the competitors will win medals, they are all champions, having competed for their countries as members of their National Surfing Teams.”
The 2013 ISA World Longboard Championship is a double elimination competition, with the first two surfers always advancing to the next Qualifying Round. Surfers in third and fourth place move into the Repechage Round, giving them a second chance to advance. However, another third or fourth place finish, and they will be out of the competition
Below is the list of our confirmed USA Team:
Taylor Jensen (Open Men)
Tony Silvagni (Open Men)
Rachael Tilly (Open Women)
Nick Anderberg (Junior U-18)
