Pipeline Pro 2011

The 2011 Pipeline Pro took place last night and the final was an absolute classic, it was up for anyone to win it with 5 minutes left to go.

Young upstart Tom Rigby had been absolutley ripping, busting a huge air on his first wave, he was showing the more established guys why he deserved to be in the final.

With 5 mins left and former champion Jeff Hubbard in 4th place it looked like Rigby had it all wrapped up. Hubbard paddled for a wave and got barrelled, but it looked like it was just going to swallow him, until he burst out of the tube section causing the Hawiian’s on the beach to go mental!

After that mental tube he paddled straight back out and caught a wave, pulling off a flawless ARS and claiming his 3rd Pipeline Pro title.
