Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 December, 2013 -- Kelly Slater (USA), 41, has won the Billabong Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons after a day of incredible 10 to 15 foot (three to four metre) waves at Pipeline, defeating recently-crowned Vans Triple Crown winner John John Florence (HAW), 21, in a hard-fought Final.
