Saturday 5 February, 11-time world champion Kelly Slater won the Billabong Pro Pipeline Award, her first stop.
Days before his 50th birthday, 11-time world champion Kelly Slater won the 2022 World Surf League surfing tour at the Billabong Pro Pipeline in Hawaii
Both Slater and Muniz spent their first rounds in the final.

Ten minutes later, the 49-year-old heated up with a very long barrel forward in the Backdoor for a 9-point ride and got ahead early, according to WSL.
Slater continued to build momentum with 7.17 to put Muniz in a common position who needed two notches to challenge him for the title.
Now that he’s on top – again – Slater is beginning to consider retirement. Nothing official, of course.
Just think about it.
To get advice on the matter, Slater sent a letter with his friend, Tom Brady, for a round trip from one athlete called the Goat, or the greatest of all time, to another.
