Tosh Tudor Will Surf The Vans Pipe Masters
The Vans 2022 Pipe Masters is set to go from December 8-20th and Tosh Tudor (Vans team rider) has got the invite to surf in this event. This is event has nothing to do with the WSL, but is owned and operated by Vans. So if I had to compare this to another event I would say Mavericks by Quiksilver where they would hand pick surfers to compete in their event. So this event will have over 50 men and women handpicked by Vans (I have to question why Joel Tudor is not invited unless he will be added at a later time). The prize purse is $420,000 with 50% of the surfers will be from Hawaii.
No stranger to going left
Not to be confused with the 2023 Billabong Pro Pipeline held from Jan 29 - Feb 10
