Billabong Pro, Pipeline – the teaser

No, it doesn't start for, like, two-and-a-bit weeks. But could this year's Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons be any more exciting? World title on the line (Joel, Kelly, Mick), those guys who kill it out there (John-John, Jamie, etc) and everything else that comes with the Pipeline party. Might we all kneel together and focus our collective hopefulness, just for a moment, for a swell like last year's? Can we, please?
