Durbo faces his demons to paddle out at Pipeline where he broke his pelvis one year earlier

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 January, 2017 - On the first wave of his 2015 Billabong Pipe Masters Round 3 heat, Bede Durbidge went over the falls and slammed into the reef, fracturing his pelvis in two places.

The months (and year) that have followed were a heavy time for Bede with surgery, hospital stays and slow, tedious physical therapy. Now he's ready to return to Pipe.
