Competition Called Back ON at Lexus Pipe Pro

The Lexus Pipe Pro Presented by YETI, Stop No. 1 on the World Surf League (WSL) 2024 Championship Tour (CT), has been called back ON

The Lexus Pipe Pro Presented by YETI, Stop No. 1 on the World Surf League (WSL) 2024 Championship Tour (CT), has been called back ON, starting at 8:03 a.m. HST. Conditions have settled down overnight and Pipeline offers three-to-six-foot waves this morning with light offshore winds.

The men’s Round of 32 and Round of 16 are scheduled to run today, using the overlapping format where two heats share the lineup with a priority system in place so each surfer gets enough opportunities to surf the best waves. The women’s competition will be OFF for the day. 

Big matchups will headline today’s competition, with a potential place in the Quarterfinals by the end of the afternoon.

Eight-time Pipeline winner Kelly Slater (USA) will surf in the opening heat this morning against World No. 2 Ethan Ewing (AUS), as both surfers will share the difficult task of setting the judging scale for the rest of the round.

The two local wildcards Jackson Bunch (HAW) and Shion Crawford (HAW) are still in the draw and will face Connor O’Leary (JPN) and Griffin Colapinto(USA), respectively, in Heats 4 and 9. Callum Robson (AUS) and Matthew McGillivray (RSA), two of the best scorers on opening day last week, will surf towards the end of the round, much like crowd-favorite John John Florence (HAW). In pumping surf, these three may be standouts again as they showed total commitment to the biggest waves at Pipeline and Backdoor when the event got underway.
