From From March 16 – 24, watch the talented women of our sport fearlessly charge one of the most renowned surf breaks in the word, the infamous Banzai Pipeline, during the Brazilian Show Room Presents the 2015 Surf n Sea Pipeline Womens Pro. This exciting event is Stop No. 5 on the Women’s 2015 WSL Qualification Series and is worth 1,000 points and gives the girls a chance to surf Pipe with only three other ladies in the lineup.
Local talent and QS competitors have the opportunity to surf and compete at Pipe with only three other surfers in the water, making it an exciting experience for the women and a chance for spectators to watch an epic battle go down along Oahu’s North Shore. Last year’s champion, Kauai’s Bethany Hamilton, took home the trophy, $2,000 and the Banzai Sushi award for the best tube ride, besting North Shore’s Moana Jones, Japan’s Sayuri Hashimoto and North Shore’s Dax McGill in a technical final.
