Small conditions at Pipe prompted another lay day for the Billabong Pipe Masters. This morning, CT veteran Jadson Andre sat down with the Dawn Patrol desk to reflect on his heroic Triple Crown run, in which he requalified for the 2017 Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour.
Heading into Hawaii ranked No. 25 on the CT, Jadson couldn't afford to put all his eggs in the Pipe Masters basket. So, with 20,000 points still up for grabs in the last two Qualifying Series events of the season, he charged his way up the QS ranks at Haleiwa and Sunset. Now, Jadson has the potential to double qualify at Pipe, where a solid result could open up a CT slot for Ezekiel Lau, who is ranked No. 11 on the QS -- just one spot away from the cutoff.
The Pipe Masters waiting period runs through December 20; tune in daily at 7:30 a.m. HST for the call and potential competition.
