I Can't Believe Today Is Happening, This Is As Good As It Gets

BEST OF THE WEB

Today the Volcom Pipe Pro had people right around the world frothing, frothing from the mouth in awe of the mighty Pipeline and the swell that keeps on, keeping on. Not only were conditions beyond perfect with double-overhead Pipe and Backdoor options flowing like a gold from a magical wave-giving pot, but the very best surfers in the world were surfing their heads off and providing top shelf entertainment of the surfing variety. Slater, JOB, JJF, Bruce Irons and our very own Jack Robinson, even the great Gavin Beschen taking in wave after wave, dropping late, sitting right back and letting one of the greatest waves in all the world spit them out. Hats off to Huey for a fine day of surf. You can check out all of today's results here. And you can see how Jamie Mitchell feels about this amazing run of Hawaiian winter goodness here.

Surfing World Magazine's Editor, Vaughan Blakey is sitting in the commentary booth for the event and today said "We’ve seen perfect stand up barrels that are just scoring twos and threes that might be nines or tens at other breaks, it's next level with these waves today. When the guys get the bomb sets and everyone’s cheering, the waves are huge, It’s as good as any sporting event that you’ll ever attend.”

"Not only is it pulsing out of it’s mind," he said "It’s perfect. We haven’t even seen a lull yet. I can’t believe today is happening, this is good as it gets."

Volcom coach and surfer Matt 'Bemmy' Bemrose jumped in proclaiming that, "This morning it’s been so consistent and smooth. It’s the best pipe since I’ve been coming here, that's over 20 years." 

Meanwhile, WSL commentator Joe Turpel gave us his insight into who he thinks is most likely to take home the coveted event win via Twitter.
