The Billabong Pipe Masters, the final stop on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour will commence its waiting period tomorrow, December 8, and is projected to enjoy solid swell and great conditions over the opening days of the window. Adam Melling is currently sitting 2nd on the ratings for the Triple Crown and starts in Ht 7 Round 1 vs wildcard Kai Barger. Owen Wright begins his Pipe campaign in Ht 2 of Round 3. Good luck fellas.
