It was Australia day today here on the north shore. The Aussie ruled. Bede Durbidge took home the richest prize purse in pro surfing history with prizes and cash totaling US$75,000. He not only won the Billabong Pipeline Masters but took out the prestigious Triple Crown of surfing for the best results over the three events in Hawaii over the past 6 weeks. Bede won a Nixon watch valued at $10,000 plus a Chevy pickup truck valued at US$30,000 plus his 1st place winnings of US$35,000.

Deano and Parko placed 2nd and 4th respectively in the final with Pancho Sullivan from Hawaii coming in at #3. It wasn't really Pipeline but the playing field of 3'-5' at Off The Wall was pretty even for all the competitors and Bede ripped. Deano Morrison ripped as well and probably just peaked in the quarters and not the final. Bede was met at the waters edge by Mick Fanning and carried up the beach . The Aussies won both the men's and women's world titles this year plus the Pipe masters and the Triple Crown. They'll be partying hard tonight.

A new swell is due Thursday and a big one is due over the weekend just in time for Christmas. All of Bede's Christmas's came at once today!! later -Peter 'Joli' Wilson
