Kieren just misses his Pipe dream

Suffolk Park’s Kieren Perrow has dramatically just missed out on claiming one of professional surfing’s most prestigious prizes – victory at the Pipeline Masters in Hawaii.


Perrow was in tremendous form leading up to the final and seemed to be comfortably leading French surfer Jeremy Flores in the dying stages of the decider.


With time running out, Flores hitched on to a great right-hand barrel which was awarded 9.37 by the judges and which gave him the title.


Up until then Perrow had dominated the tricky conditions, recording some of the event’s top scores, including a 9.90, a 9.83 and a 9.70.


“You never think you’ve won until the hooter goes I guess,” Perrow said.


“I know Jeremy is capable of getting great scores, which he showed throughout the event, and I wanted to be patient and wait for that good one.


“I went on that one that wasn’t so good and Jeremy got that nine, and all credit to him.


“It’s been a fantastic week though. The support from everyone has been amazing.”
