Pipeline 2012 is coming!

The Billabong Pipe Masters, final stop of the Vans Triple Crown and the final event of the ASP Men’s World Tour, is the culmination of both series. The Banzai Pipeline is often referred to as the best wave on the planet. Known for its perfect, heaving top-to-bottom barrels and its close proximity to shore, it is the perfect wave for those willing to charge, and also for the spectators on the beach.

Part of the allure of Pipeline is that with the perfection comes consequence. Pipeline is one of the most dangerous waves on the planet. It has claimed more lives than any other wave in the world—one fatality a year, on average—inflicts numerous injuries and breaks boards for a hobby. The cause of danger, a shallow slab of reef with crevasses and coral heads, is also the reason for the barreling shape and immense power of the wave.

Heading into the 2012 Billabong Pipe Masters, three surfers remain mathematically in contention for the 2012 ASP World Title: Joel Parkinson (AUS), 31, Kelly Slater (USA), 40, and Mick Fanning (AUS), 31. All three surfers will automatically be seeded into Round 3 of competition and finish no worse than Equal 13th (1750 points).

ASP WCT surfers’ year-end rankings are based off their top eight finishes from the 10 ASP WCT events in 2012. Parkinson is the current rankings leader and the following ASP World Title scenarios are based on his potential finishes at Pipeline.

If Parkinson finishes 13th, 9th or 5th at the Billabong Pipe Masters:
Slater needs a 5th or higher to take the 2012 ASP World Title.
Fanning needs to win at Pipeline to take the 2012 ASP World Title. (*Contingent upon Slater finishing 5th or Lower at Pipeline.)

If Parkinson finishes Equal 3rd at the Billabong Pipe Masters:
Slater needs a 3rd or higher to take the 2012 ASP World Title.
Fanning needs to win at Pipeline to take the 2012 ASP World Title. (*Contingent upon Slater finishing 5th or Lower at Pipeline.)

If Parkinson finishes 2nd at the Billabong Pipe Masters:
Slater needs to win at Pipeline to take the 2012 ASP World Title.
Fanning cannot win the 2012 ASP World Title.

If Parkinson wins the Billabong Pipe Masters, he will take the 2012 ASP World Title.

The Billabong Pipe Masters, the third jewel of the Vans Hawaiian Triple Crown of Surfing, will be run from December 8 – 20, 2012.

2012 Quiksilver Pro

The Quiksilver Pro is scheduled to start tomorrow and the lucky so and so’s Nick and Jago should be there living it up with Charli, try and spot them on the webcast…

Friday, September 28 marks the first day of the official waiting period for this year’s edition of the Quiksilver Pro France, first event of the two-stop European leg on the ASP Men’s World Championship Tour. The 32 best surfers on the planet will once again invade France’s iconic Hossegor region and take on the powerful shorebreaks of La Graviere for an exciting 11-days.

With the recent performances of local hero Jeremy Flores on the WCT, and an exciting race for the coveted 2012 ASP World Champion Title, Hossegor readies to host some of the highest standard of surfing witnessed over the years and an ever-growing fan base for the sport. Michel Bourez (PYF) and Tiago Pires (PRT) will also be closely followed by all European surf-enthusiasts, both having a strong attachment to the region and two very entertaining surfers to watch.

After last year’s exploits of our 2012 European Junior Champion Ramzi Boukhiam (MAR) who finished equal 13th as a wildcard, tension starts building amongst the crew of 16 surfers who will battle it out this week for the unique wildcard slot left in the main event. All generations and regions will be represented with the likes of seasoned competitors Aritz Aranburu (EUK) and Patrick Beven (FRA) facing Maxime Huscenot (FRA), Marc Lacomare (FRA), Craig Anderson (AUS), Wigolly Dantas (BRA), Leonardo Fioravanti (ITA) and many more.

The Quiksilver Pro France is scheduled from September 28 – October 8, 2012 in Hossegor, France. For all results, photos, video highlights, press releases and LIVE webcast, log on to www.aspworldtour.com.

Stephanie Gilmore Claims 5th ASP Women’s World Title at Roxy Pro Biarritz

Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 24, has claimed her 5th ASP Women’s World Title today, winning the Roxy Pro Biarritz over Tyler Wright (AUS), 18.

“I woke up this morning and thought it wouldn’t happen today,” Gilmore said. “But as the day progressed, and things fell into place, I began to believe it could happen. France is such a special place and having so many people on the beach watching us surf today is really emotional. I think I’m going to cry.”

Gilmore set an ASP record by being the first surfer ever to win four titles from four attempts (2007 – 2010), but fell back to ASP Women’s World No. 3 in 2011. Today’s emotional win is a reassertion of her dominance as one of the greatest icons in women’s sports.

“This year for me was all about improving my consistency and having fun with my surfing,” Gilmore said. “From when I started five years ago to where we are now, women’s surfing has improved so much. It’s an honor to be back up top as these girls push me everyday and are all incredible surfers.”

Today’s incredible achievement puts the young natural-footer in an elite class of surfers to win five or more ASP World Titles, overtaking women’s records set by Freida Zamba (USA), Wendy Botha (AUS) and Lisa Andersen (USA). The only other two surfers in history to claim five or more titles are Kelly Slater (USA) and Layne Beachley (AUS).

Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), 24, has claimed her 5th ASP Women’s World Title today, posting a big win at the Roxy Pro Biarritz.
