Pipeline Masters

Released in 2006, Pipeline Masters is the remarkable tale of a groundbreaking surfing competition that was birthed in 1971 and since its inception has defined what can only be described as extreme. Held in the fearsome tubes of Hawaii’s Banzai Pipeline, it has become the most prestigious surfing event in the world where the winners transcend money, fame or ratings but rather achieve the surfing world’s most coveted title: Pipeline Master.

The Pipeline Masters is simply where history is made, it gave way to Gerry’s Era, Simon Anderson’s spectacular three-fin Thruster debut, Michael Ho’s broken wrist wonder, Tom Carroll and The Snap and so much more. Year after year it seems the more outrageous it gets, it is a rare location, one where legendary status can truly be achieved.
