Billabong Pipe Masters Intro

by on Friday 7th December, 2012   8906 Views

THE forecast looks hot for the start of the 2012 Billabong Pipeline Masters, in what is essentially a World Championship shootout.

Kelly Slater, Joel Parkinson and outside threat Mick Fanning will be going head-to-head against the rest of the tour and a selection of Pipeline specialist for the 2012 ASP World Title. It’s exciting, it hasn’t come down to Pipeline since 2009 and for once the whole world isn’t rooting for Kelly.

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.

It will all be live HERE on Saturday, December 8th.
