Pipeline today was in the 4-6 foot range all day with a few tubes for the Junior surfers. The light variable winds played a critical role in today's event keeping conditions near flawless for the full day of competition.
Don't get too comfortable Joel.. congrats on the world title, but now you have a target on your back..and the boys are coming for you. With the first stop of the ASP World Tour in the books, and a hot new race underway, there is no question that Joel as a lot of work to do if he is to defend his title this year. Kelly just won his 52nd tour victory on the first stop of the tour, and in Australia....that's gotta sting!
Add Joel Parkinson to the long list of Kelly Slater's rivals....in Joels very own backyard.
After barely losing to Parkinson for the 2012 ASP World Title, Slater began his 2013 campaign by unseating his new nemesis on Wednesday in a record book 40-minute final round of the Quiksilver Pro Australia; the two best surfers in the world traded near-perfect rides in pumping thick hollow four to six-foot surf. This was Slater's 52nd world tour win and his fourth win at the world-famous sand-bottom point break of Kirra on Australia's Gold Coast.
"It was an amazing day, congratulations to Kelly. This is why we surf, this is why we compete," Parkinson said in defeat....
The Surf n Sea Women Pipe Pro presented by San Lorenzo...yes the Bikini girls were having fun in the sun and the Athletes showed there best! The waves were very cooperative with 3-6 foot waves consistently through-out the day. The girls pushed there waves all the way to the inside and were in peak critical pockets and drops. Catch results inside.

RED BULL JAWS, Paddle at Pe'ahi enters the final week of its holding period today, with the last day being next Friday, March 15.
Since December 7, 2012, the event's 21 Invitees have been ready to activate for this one-day big wave paddle-in event - the first of its kind to be held at Jaws, on Maui, Hawaii. However, an optimal day of surf with wave face heights in the specified range of 30 to 50 feet, out of the NNW with light winds, has not presented itself. There have been a handful of invaluable warm-up days for the surfers, but the required size and/or quality standards ultimately fell short thus far.
