The 2014 Men's ASP Qualifying Series are over, but the 2015 World Surf League roster not yet been fully decided. Let's take a look at who's already in the elite surfing club before the Pipe Masters.

It's been a long year. The adventure of the Qualifying Series is a tough road, especially for those who end the season touching the bubble. You need nerves of steel.

The final lineup for next year's 2015 World Surf League will only be decided with the conclusion of the Billabong Pipe Masters, but there is already good news for a few surfers.

Presently, the following surfers have secured their place through the ASP Qualifying Series: Australians Matt Banting, Julian Wilson, Adam Melling and Matt Wilkinson; Brazil's Wiggolly Dantas, Jadson Andre, and Italo Ferreira; and Hawaii surfers Payne and Keanu Asing.

Brett Simpson and Ricardo Christie could qualify if Julian Wilson and Jadson Andre hold their place on the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT) rankings.

"I have to wait for Pipe now. I kinda have mixed vibes, I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch and there are a few scenarios that could go down," explains Richard Christie.

Tomas Hermes and Garrett Parkes could also move in if Adam Melling and Matt Wilkinson climb into the top 22 on the WCT rankings next week.

Banzai Pipeline will decide. Let the game begin.
