Women took on the beautiful waves of Pipeline for the annual migration to Oahu’s North Shore. San Lorenzo Bikini girls were having fun in the sun and the Athletes showed there best. The waves were very cooperative with 3-6 foot waves consistently through-out the day. The girls pushed their waves all the way to the inside and were in peak critical pockets and drops.
Some short board standouts are 1st Place Dax Mc Gill (15yrs), Tatiana Weston Webb got some great waves, Brianna Cope battled it out but received a slight Pipeline wound. Anastasia Ashley had some of the set waves, Melanie Bartels with a barrel, and bodyboarder Carla Costa Taylor received a perfect 10 wave score! , Minami Hatakeyama (second place bodyboard), Winner of Longboard-Izumi Baldwin

DROP-IN THAT COST JOEL THE QUIKKY – Gold Coast Bulletin
It was the wave that could have won him the Quiksilver Pro and Joel Parkinson was none to happy when Kelly Slater dropped in and seated the Gold Coaster’s fate at Kirra yesterday. Needing a score of 9.89 to overtake his rival in the dying minutes of yesterday’s final, Parkinson paddled into a wave that looked set to take him on a long barreling ride, a maneuver which had earnt him a perfect 10 in his semi-final win earlier in that day. But with Slater holding priority, Parkinson was forced to yield when the American decided to take the wave – and channeled his frustration through his index finger. Slater went on to win the first event of the 2013 ASP world tour.
Billabong has set a deadline on March 28th for both parties that are bidding for ownership. Paul Naude who has teamed up with Sycamore Partners Management versus VF Corporation. Full story can be found at Deal Journal Australia
A big THANK YOU to the folks over at Transworld Surf Magazine as we noticed they did a Wednesday Wants on our Surfing Wall Murals.

Imagine how much action you could get with one of these bad ass wall murals hanging in your stabbin’ cabin? Ladies would walk in and be like, “Oh my god, is that you in that huge tube?” Coming in a variety of photos and sizes, the murals are of the highest quality and will no doubt get you wall-to-wall poontang from now ‘til eternity.—Justin Coté

“At 41 and still ranked No 2 in the world, Slater would appear to match the profile of a textbook doping suspect.” – written by Will Swanton. The full story can be read here at The Australian
