The Billabong Pipe Masters surfing competition could start any time as the holding period opens. 

The annual event off ‘Ehukai beach is considered the super bowl of surfing events, being one of the most attended as well as the most prestigious of the competitions.  It’s also the conclusion of ten competitions in the world surf league.

Organizers say the close viewing proximity from the shore…mixed with the danger of the reef make pipeline one of the most exciting contests to watch.  Bron Heussenstamm is a former competitor…and representative for the event.

The Pipe Masters holding period runs from Thursday until December 20th… and contest organizers usually give a day’s warning before starting the competition.
