The ASP Europe sanctioned specialty event combined both performance and classic longboard styles in long peeling two-to-four foot waves, at Ribamontan al Mar.
The innovative format saw Ben Skinner displaying a full array of manoeuvres including hang-tens, drop-knee turns and amazing foot work. The British longboarder finished the event with 32.35 points, ahead of Aurelien Meynieux and Alberto Fernandez.
Once again, it's all down to Pipe. Fanning and Medina have both won three events during the season, but the Brazilian is traveling to the Oahu's North Shore in the first place with 56,550 points, against the Australian's 53,100 points. Kelly has 50,050 points.
The Billabong Pipe Masters 2014 will be surfed between December 8th-20th, in Hawaii, and we all know the math by now. Let's take a look at the numbers:
After a pair of low-scoring semis, it was quickly clear that the Final promised to be a different kind of party. Again, Mick Fanning was out of the gate first, getting a quick tube for a 5.67 to start.
Fanning's next wave topped that: When Jordy Smith backed off of a left under priority, Fanning pulled in high and tight for a technical ride capped with wrapping turns for a 9.00.
