Thursday is the first day of the waiting period for the 2015 Volcom Pipe Pro and without any delay the contest is ON! Competition begins with the Round of 112. Head to the official 2015 Volcom Pipe Pro website www.VolcomPipePro.com/live to watch LIVE.
Underscoring the excellent reputation of this event and the quality of surf it typically enjoys, Kelly Slater (USA), John John Florence (HAW) and Dusty Payne (HAW) will head the 112-man international field from more than a dozen countries.
The one remaining wildcard spot in the event will be decided by the very special and exciting Volcom Last Chance Qualifier heat. The third annual VLCQ will be a 40-minute, 8-man heat in which veteran pipe warriors Bruce Irons, Gavin Beschen, Alex Gray, Kawai Lindo, JD Irons, Kaimana Henry, Derek Ho and Makuakai Rothman will all be contending in a best-wave, winner-take-all battle for a seed into the Round of 64.
