In every video of a surf contest, I try to place myself in an area that the normal live contest footage doesn’t show. This video will place you next to the beach marshals at the Billabong Pipe Masters 2016 contest. Each contestant has to check in for his heat, get his contest jersey, and listen to any unique instructions regarding priority, heat lengths, restart conditions, and his obligations as to post heat interviews if he wins his heat.
You get to stand wishing five to fifteen feet of the pro contestants and watch their demeanors when they advance to the next round or they fail to move on. KYLE METCALF
