Jeff had an idea about Pipeline. Here's what he told Surfing magazine about it: "(I) came here and saw that what worked in Florida worked here. It's basically the same thing. Pipeline is just a big Sebastian left."
Pipeline like Florida?
Yet on a solid north-angled day in 1974, Crawford took it on to break Gerry's two-event streak, and become the first non-Hawaiian winner of the Masters.
And maybe he had a point about Pipe being Sebastian Inlet, because Jeff Crawford wasn't the last guy from Central Florida to win this contest...
