Watch: Mason Ho // Pipeline with Pops

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

The opening two waves in this clip show, firstly, 62-year-old Mike Ho styling through a look back into Pipeline's gaping maw, followed by Mason Ho doing the exact same thing.

Like father like son.

But the influences appear to run the other way too, such as at 2:35 when Pops leans into a classic grab rail barrel - the kind that won him the '82 Pipe Masters - but at the last second switches arms so his leading hand is grabbing rail - the kind of move you've seen Mason do a hundred times over.

Like son like father.

The footage was shot two days ago.

Full disclosure - I'm not Mason's old man.

Wouldn't mind having his skills in the tube, though.
