The 2015 World Surf League champion will be decided at the Pipeline Masters, in Hawaii.

Once again, it all goes to Pipe. And only three surfers depend on themselves and their final result on the Oahu's North Shore to clinch the 2015 world surfing trophy: Mick Fanning, Adriano de Souza and Filipe Toledo.

If one of them wins the Pipeline Masters, then he will be crowned 2015 World Surf League champion. The other three contenders depend on the equation's multiple variables. Let's see:

If Mick Fanning places 25th/3th:
- Owen Wright and Julian Wilson need 1st
- Gabriel Medina needs 3rd
- Adriano de Souza needs 9th
- Filipe Toledo needs 13th

If Mick Fanning places 9th:
- Gabriel Medina needs 1st
- Adriano de Souza needs 5th
- Filipe Toledo needs 9th

If Mick Fanning places 5th:
- Gabriel Medina needs 1st
- Adriano de Souza needs 3rd
- Filipe Toledo needs 5th

If Mick Fanning places 3rd:
- Adriano de Souza needs 2nd
- Filipe Toledo needs 3rd

If Mick Fanning places 2nd:
- Adriano de Souza needs 1st
- Filipe Toledo needs 1st

If Mick Fanning wins the Pipeline Masters, he is the new world champion.
