DAY 1 highlights from the Billabong Pipe Masters on the North Shore.

Kieren Perrow, defending Billabong Pipe Masters Champion, got the best of a hard-fought heat against Pipe specialist Evan Valiere, keeping his hopes of a repeat victory alive.

“That felt like a final,” Perrow said. “I was expecting Evan (Valiere) to pull off some bombs. He’s an unreal surfer out here. We were out of position on those sets, but I’m glad we were and he wasn’t in position. It was a nerve-wracking heat being in the first one of the event and I’m just glad to get the win.”

The forecast looks good for day two of Billabong Pipe Masters before slacking off with a bump just after the mid point of the holding period.
