How Two OC Surfers Could Win Pipe Masters

The Pipe Masters is happening through December 20, although there's a good chance the event will wrap up well before that. Only two surfers from the OC will be competing in the event, Brett Simpson and Kolohe Andino, but neither of them would be considered true Pipe Masters. Yeah, they know how to get barrelled and can absolutely charge anything Pipe throws their way, but it's highly unlikely either of them can win the event. But there is a small chance.

For Brett Simpson, luck would have to be on his side, and the waves would have to be in the six- to eight-foot range, with lots of Backdoor nuggets. Let's say Brett makes a few heats and builds some momentum. And the surfers he faces in those later rounds have shockers. That's one way he could make the finals. We've seen it happen with Jeremy Flores a few years ago, so there's a slight chance it could happen again. But will it? You never know. Regardless, Brett rips harder than anyone we know and we're looking forward to seeing him charge in the event.

Then there's little brother, Kolohe Andino. Although he's not considered a bonafide Pipe Master, he could go all the way. But again, the surf would have to be in the six- to eight-foot range with a lot of Backdoor nuggets. Let's say Kolohe makes a few heats and builds some momentum. And the surfers he faces in those later rounds have shockers. That's one way he could make the finals.
