Volcom Pipe Pro: splitting rides

The Volcom Pipe Pro 2014 will be surfed between January 26th and February 7th, at the Banzai Pipeline. Gentlemen, wax your surfboards.

There are 112 surfers ready to compete in the ASP 5-Star World Qualifying Series (WQS) event, which marks the grand debut of the new professional surfing season.

There's too much at stake, on the North Shore of Oahu. Valuable ratings points for a long 2014 campaign, and $130,000 USD in prize money. Glory takes its credit too.

The Volcom Pipe Pro is also an extra special event for the local Hawaiian competitors, being that it is a chance for non-World Tour surfers to gain entry into the prestigious Pipe Masters.

The top eight Hawaiian competitors in the Volcom Pipe Pro will be rewarded with local seeds into the 2014 event, which is part of the Triple Crown series and wraps up the tour for the year.
