Man of the day was for sure Mick Fanning (AUS), winning his third world title in the quarterfinal against Yadin Nicol (AUS). Fanning is now ASP world tour champ 2013. But the Billabong Pipe Masters 2013 went down to the wire. Kelly Slater (USA), who was Fannings’s biggest opponent in the Pipe Masters, won the contest at Banzai Pipeline: “I was obviously emotional today, especially after Mick (Fanning) clinched the title in the Quarters“, says Slater after his win, „I don’t know what happens for me in 2014 but I think that has pissed me off just enough to come back.” We couldn’t be happier that Slater is pissed off because this confirms the rumours about his retirement in surfing is nothing but wrong. We can already be looking forward to the next thrilling surfing season…

ASP world tour champion Mick Fanning finished third over all. The big final was between Kelly Slater and John John Florence (USA). Even though Slater defeated his 7th „Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons“ title against Florence (USA), at the end of the day the 21 year old surfer came out as a winner as well. Florence claimed the third title of the day by winning the prestigious Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. Missed out on the thrilling close and Mick Fanning’s win just in the nick of time?
