Julian Wilson // Hawaii // 2:49

Little known fact about Julian Wilson: he’ll go on anything. For a kid whose name made it to your household by virtue of a face more gorgeous than the Mona Lisa and a marvelous backhand tail-whirl (like the one at 1:28), Julian sure is reckless in the gutsy stuff. This clip opens with some medium-sized -- but still scary -- Backdoor before settling into a rippable rhythm at Off The Wall. And then comes Pipe. Big Pipe. Julian had himself one hell of a year out there, getting good ones during every noteworthy swell and romping all the way to the Quarterfinals at the Billabong Pipeline Masters. If you needed any more proof that Julian is a legitimate title contender in 2014, see above.
