Volcom is opening the floodgates this year for ambitious Pipe chargers looking to test their skills in competition. The Volcom Pipe Pro Wildcard Video Challenge aims to give one talented applicant a chance to compete against true Pipe specialists in the 2011 Volcom Pipe Pro, which takes place from January 24 to February 5. The video contest asks Pipe surfers to submit video clips of their best five waves at Backdoor or Pipeline so far this season. To ensure a level playing field, contestants will be judged on how critical their waves are, and not their ability to edit video, and/or pick the hottest new dance-club track. Submissions will be judged by a panel of Pipe specialists and must be submitted before January 18, 2011.
