Pipe Masters off today, but already into dangerous territory

Kelly Slater doesn’t wear the white jersey very often, but he made it work during his first-round heat Monday at the Pipe Masters on Oahu. Slater won his opening heat to advance directly into round three. Having missed five events this season, Slater’s low seeding could set up some electric early head-to-head heats.

The first round hasn’t even been completed, but there are a lot of interesting heats lined up and ready to go when the Pipe Masters resumes — whenever that may be.
