PIPELINE, Oahu/Hawaii (Friday, December 13, 2013) - A third consecutive lay day has been called for the Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons, with small surf prevailing at Pipeline and Backdoor. The Billabong Pipe Masters is the third and final stop on the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.

“As expected we have a third day of small surf here on the North Shore,” Marty Thomas, Vans Triple Crown Contest Director said. “We are watching a new swell that is expected to build throughout the day today and we could finish the contest tomorrow.”

When Billabong Pipe Masters competition resumes C.J. Hobgood (USA), 34, will face off against two-time ASP World Champion and current ASP World No. 1 Mick Fanning(AUS), 32, in Heat 1 of Round 5.

Surfline, official forecasters for the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing are calling for:
A large NW swell is on the way, due to rapidly build in over Friday afternoon/night, peaking by Saturday morning with 10-18′+ faces at Pipe. Meanwhile, light offshore SE wind is expected to greet this swell on Saturday. This swell backs down Sunday into next week, with another very solid but partially shadowed WNW swell possible for the 19th-20th (still pending development).

Event organizers will reconvene tomorrow morning at 7:30am local time for a possible 8am start to Billabong Pipe Masters competition.
