In 1982 Hawaiian Michael Ho won the Pipe Masters in big lefts with a broken right wrist. The day before the contest he tried surfing the sand bars next Pipeline but could barely stand up on the board because of the cast. According to him he “just willed it” once the contest started. Our new “Legend” T-Shirt features a photo of Michael charging the Pipe, with cast, en-route to his Pipe Masters victory. Here’s some pics of Mason’s friends wearing “dad’s” tee this year during the Pipe Masters. Check out our DEALER LIST to find out where you can get your hands on one.
