Dean Morrison – 2nd at The Pipe Masters
Dean Morrison finished inside the Top 10 at World No. 9 with his 2nd place result at the Billabong Pipeline Masters. Bede Durbidge posted 16.67 points out of 20.00 to finish first in the four-man final over Dean Morrison (AUS), Pancho Sullivan (HAW) and Joel Parkinson (AUS) respectively. Dean has been riding a Nick Blair Silent Savage model throughout the event.
“I don’t think any of us expected that Pipe would go down like this when we packed our bags for Hawaii,” Morrison said. “It really did end up being more of a maneuver event rather than a barrel-riding event, and I was stoked to make it through to my first final of the year. Congratulations to Bede – he was absolutely ripping all day.”
