Well, we admit we follow close to no surfing tours these days, but with Kelly Slater being our fan favorite at Pipeline it has been noted he will not be surfing this years Pipe Masters starting on December 8th (JJF also pulled out). Most likely conflict with the WSL as Kelly would never pass up a comp at Pipe. We have to question why Joel Tudor is not invited (Vans his title sponsor) and his son Tosh did get the invite. So with that said our vote is for Tosh Tudor to win the Vans Pipe Masters Twenty Two!

Papa Smurf could easily give these young pups a show
