Pipeline is real easy to find: On Kam Highway, near Sunset Beach. It is right opposite Sunset Elementary School, in front of Ehukai Beach Park. If its working, just look for the perfect peak, the surfers crowding the shoulder and the photographers and wannabies lined up on the beach.

If you see a perfect Right 50 m away, then you've found Backdoor!

 Informations supplémentaires

Park out the front, but watch those no-park zones: they tow.

Pipeline is actually a series of reefs (3) which allows it to work on a variety of swell sizes; when the swell is big, and the third reef is going off - you'd better be ready for it: it is one of the most difficult and unforgiving waves in the world.

The left tube at Pipeline relies on a west-angled swell, which refracts onto a shallow flat lava reef about 80 yards offshore. Result: a dramatic, shifting wave with a sometimes critical takeoff. If sand is built up on the northern edge of the reef, murderous closeouts occur on a regular basis. Smaller swells from the northwest or north bring life to the Backdoor section, which peels right across the near-dry center of the reef.

Pipeline is an intense, short ride requires perfect timing. The simple skills count for most: getting in early and placing the first turn just right - that, and an ability to adjust quickly to changes in the vast, quick moving volume of water.

Atmosphère

The atmosphere is heavy. The wave itself picks up increadibly fast seemingly out of nowhere, often throwing a perfect lip (and anyone late on their take-off) onto an extremely shallow and dangerous reef. When small to mid size the wave gets really crowded, you hesitate and you won't get a second chance. When big, most mortals (including me of course) just enjoy the spectacle from the beach.

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! - I can't believe that now, and for the rest of my life, I can say I rode pipeline.   Sure, it wasn't epic, but it was great. 5-7ft and an occasional higher set made for a GREAT introduction! A little mushy in the beginning wit

De Anonymous , 11-12-2009

patience - I see a lot of comments where people say that didnt see any "epic" breaks. Most days are descent size. But nothin special.

Pay attention and the stars will align. And Ive have seen truly epic surf here.
