The future is now.

This isn't just about a Title.

This is about the birth of the next generation of surfing greatness.

Win Maui. Win the Title.

Women's surfing is on a whole new level.
Strength, power, finesse, fearlessness and fight: the caliber of talent and performances by the competitors on this year's tour have been amazing. 
And we're about to see the ultimate test in Maui.

The top three contenders are virtually tied. So it all comes down to this:

If they win Maui, they win the Title.

From destiny to dynasty: who is surfing's next king?

Gabriel Medina and John John Florence are both electrifying, polarizing, generational talents.

They've each won one title: Medina in 2014, and Florence in 2016.

Adding a second this year could be the beginning of surfing's next dynasty.

But only one can do it.

the only pipe master

He's done it once – can he do it again?

Julian Wilson is the only Title contender who has won Pipe before.

And to win the Title this year, he'll have to win again.

sally: break through or be broken

Sally Fitzgibbons is a 3x runner-up.
She's never won a title.
But she's a fighter with an aggressive and fearless surfing style and the guts to go head-to-head with anyone on tour. 
Can she finally break through?

power meets power

Jordy is an underdog.

Two events ago, he was in first. He's fallen to third going into Pipe.

But Jordy is one of the most powerful surfers in history.

To win the Title, he'll have to put it all on the line at one of surfing's most powerful waves: Pipeline.

What will happen when power meets power, under pressure?

National Pride

Four contenders. Four countries. Who will bring the trophy home?

Home turf. Home crowd. Hometown hero. Can John John win his second title in his backyard?

It's been 40 years since a ZAF won the Title. If Jordy doesn't win, it might be another 40. Can he do it?

Will Gabriel cement Brazil's place as a surfing superpower by becoming Brazil's first bicampeão?

An entire nation rests on Julian's shoulders as the only remaining Aussie in the race.

And it's all happening here, at surfing's home, the ultimate proving ground. hawaii.pipe dec 8
