After several days of Pipe Masters action, it all boiled down to these two competitive surfers. Michel Bourez, and Kanoa Igarashi.
Michel started taking off on a wave, but it was a closeout. Then he took off on his second wave a few minutes later and scored a 5.0 with his completed barrel ride. Igarashi took off on a quick barrel combined with a floater and finishes with a nice snap and scored a 4.17.
Igarashi followed through with another barrel ride but it was cut short and he was able to sneak out of the close out. Kanoa needed a 2.07 to take the lead but he only scored a 2.0 on this one. With less than half a minute left, Bourez took off on a wave and completed a nice barrel ride scoring a 2.53 to seal the win and took the Billabong Pipe Masters Title.
