At this very moment, Mason Ho is readying for a quarter-final heat at the Pipe Invitational. Hoping to tube-ride his way into the main event, and a shot at a Pipe Masters win.

A lot of people prepare for an event at Pipe, by surfing Pipe. Makes sense. But not our beloved Mason. He heads to the West Side in order to find the wave most likely to fuck him up.

Watch as Mase, along with good friend Sheldon Paishon, avoid the North Shore crowds by taking on this ridiculously sharp and shallow reef. So sharp that Mason was forced to enter the water wearing shoes.
