Pipeline can be a crazy wave, get ready for the action. The Surf n Sea Pipeline Womens Pro presented by Brazilian Show Room has a long history of events at Pipeline starting in 1980 when only the Women Bodyboarders were taking on the challenge. At the time there were organized Women’s groups working at it and big world tour events in other countries. As Women’s short boarding grew there came the day when they wanted to have a contest at the world famous spot. It was on! The first events were held with many styles of board riding including SUP. This year’s contest will be the short boarders only battling it out for points, a bit of prize money and hugh bragging rights! Pipeline is a place of consequence and the women that ride it are a different breed. The pool of athletes these days is deep and we wish them all good luck!. Thanks to all of the support especially Brazilian Show Room the presenting sponsor for the opportunity to showcase the Women who would not miss it for the world.
