Dane Reynolds is pregnant. Kelly Slater has a Master’s Degree. Gabriel is NOT the first Brazilian surf champ. We uncover some hard truths in the first show of 2015. Enjoy!

PIPE MASTERS RECAP

Gabriel clinched his world title by making the final. Julian narrowly beat him in the final during a very close final exchange, and also won the Triple Crown by doing so. Phenomenal finish.

My favorite wave of the event? Alejo Muniz’s Backdoor buzzer beater against Slater.

    Hola David,

    Long time “Down the Line” listener and a big “Surf Splendor” fan since day one. I live in Boston so it’s nice to listen to you guys rap out about surfing especially during these brutal winters. None of my friends here really surf so it’s nice to be able to listen to the podcast and stay connected to the world of surfing. I was thinking how great it would be if you could get Eddie Rothman to call into the show. He is so passionate about HI and his latest clip on the Intertia is just another example of how this guy does not hold back his feelings. The North Shore is the last “wild west” scenario playing out in the USA and it is truly fascinating. Let me know if you are ever back in MA and I can dial you into some secret spots.

    Keep up the good work
    Evan
