5 Reasons to Watch 2010 Billabong Pipe Masters

1. With a Solid north swell on tap, the boys on the bubble of qualification/elimination will go for broke in DOH Backdoor.

2. Soak in the Andy Irons memorial celebrations and reflections, including a paddle-out on Saturday morning. Freddy P called his 2003 pipe bout with Slater, “The best heat in surfing history”.

3. Watching Bruce surf his heart out today, after he witnesses the birth of his late brother’s son . He tearfully stated “I’m going to be the father of his child”

4. Listing to everyone heckle the ASP for excluding Julian Wilson for the event, as he sits in second place for triple crown points.

5. Seeing what mutant surfboard Kelly unveils that baffles his competition and challenges the shaping status quo.

Surfers and onlookers agree that the Ehukai beachpark offers the gnarliest vantage point of any venue in the world. So check out the live feed, and watch history roll over the reef.

Collecting Scores and Umbrella Drinks With Dane

Collecting Scores And Umbrella Drinks from STAB on Vimeo.

Step into Dane’s sailor shoes and sample his approach to the world championship tour events. He defies the new-age approach of personal trainers and muscle milk, with his whisky fueled photo trips, and pre-heat cliff diving.

We all know Puerto Rico was a mixed bag of emotions for everyone, but this vid leaves us wondering if the world tour can keep Dane captivated, as many speculated he’ll drop out next season (sound farmiliar?).

Also, we think the video’s over-sized heat scores made reference to the lack of on-screen scoring during the Rip Curl events. Or, maybe just to boast his high scores, like the 9.97 we called “The Reynolds Wrap”.

Anyways enjoy Collecting Scores and Umbrella Drinks, a short film by Dustin Miller.
