When Italo Ferreira won in Portugal, he did not only win his third CT event this year. He also forced the World Title race to go to Hawaii. Pipe Masters is not until December, but everyone is already excited because a showdown of skills is bound to happen at the last stop of the tour.

It was unfortunate, but for the brave souls like John John Florence and Jamie O’Brien who paddled out, it was possibly one of the best surf sessions they had.
