“It took me up until now to get over getting second to Jeremy last year” Perrow said. “It’s so good to get back here. I just felt so comfortable the whole time. I’ve had such a great event anyway and coming in to today, it was just amazing. The waves have been phenomenal. I haven’t surfed Pipe like that in my entire career. This is pretty much the pinnacle for me.”
This result is made even more special as Perrow needed to place 5th or better in this event to secure his requalification onto the 2012 ASP World Tour, his 6th year as an elite competitor on the Dream Tour.
The 2012 ASP World Tour kicks off at Snapper Rocks in March on the Gold Coast, Australia.
