The 2018 WSL Championship Tour season is officially over, wrapping up at one of the most epic breaks on the planet, Banzai Pipeline.

Strong swell with 12-18' faces at Pipe/Backdoor, provided a stacked talent pool of surfers from around the globe, and beach goers a like lots of action.

Top 3 Best Clips from a Bodysurfers POV:

"The Kelly Slater Pipe Masters Miracle Recovery"

"Kelly Slater completed the drop-in and got shacked. As the wave pinched he fell off of his board in the barrel. You see him tumbling around as he grabs his surfboard and positions himself in a prone position on the board (while still in the barrel). Kelly Slater proceeds to jump to his feet again, as if barely taking off on the wave for the first time. He then rides the remaining wave." EpicSurfNews 

"A Perfect 10 Wave! Huge barrel with Gabriel Medina of Brazil"

 This perfect 10 helped Gabriel Medina claims his second World Title and first Pipe Masters title over Julian Wilson on Finals day.
