Doesn't it feel like just yesterday when Filipe Toledo beat Ethan Ewing at Trestles to win back-to-back world titles?

Fast forward 4-months and we're back in Hawaii, where the CT is gearing up for its first stop on the 2024 season: Pipeline.

As luck (errr, bad luck?) would have it, Pipeline is absolutely pumping leading into the event. Last year, that was the case at nearly every stop: The waves would fire for the freesurfs, and then go quiet during the waiting periods. It turned out to be a curse all year long, and it's a curse the WSL (and all of us fans) hopes to reverse in 2024.

At the moment, we're six days away from the start of the waiting period, and early indications are that we'll see plenty of big swell during the comp window. Winds might be dicey to start, but there's plenty of time for things to settle in and come together.

Click play for 2-minutes of perfect Pipeline from last weekend. Fingers crossed there's a few more days where this came from in the very near future.
