AFTER one day of relative relaxation, post the madness of the Eddie event, we're straight into the Billabong Pipe Masters comp... Here's some nuggets from Day 1.
From first light it was pretty obvious it was cooking - Billabong's Twitter account was pooping out pics from dawn and it all kicked off at 8.
Overlapping heats and a hell of a lot of local trialists to work through (unlike the regulation 4 at every other WT event)...
The swell pumped, the sun shone and this gent was looking pretty funky.
