Over the last half-century, a few shapers have focused on shaping equipment explicitly designed for the steep, hollow, unpredictable characteristics of Pipeline's fabled break. This exhibit is Billabong Pipe Masters’ salute to the breakthrough shapers who changed the way surfers rode Pipeline. But it is also a chance to honor the elite corps of shapers who have provided surfers at this spot with the custom equipment and vital confidence that each surfer needs to challenge the Banzai Pipeline.
