Pipeline Beach and Surf
The Hawaii Turtle Tour makes time to pop on by Beach! Locals insist that the wave was surfed long before the 1960s, the first recorded surfing at Pipeline took place in 1964. Beyond the third reef, Greg Noll rode one of the most famous waves ever caught at. By 1971 the first Pipe Masters was held even though Pipeline was already legendary in the surfing sphere. The Pipe Masters is a contest that is still a major event in the surfing world today. The most deadly and perfect waves in the world have only increased Pipeline reputation.
As the final stop of the ASP World Tour, Pipeline is home to the final event of the Vans Triple Crown. Also Pipe Masters, as the event is normally called, has taken place for decades at Pipeline. Other events happen each year, like the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout. This promotes local talent and is an incredible show. Another event since 1971 is the Pipeline Bodysurfing Classic. This is an opportunity for surfers to bodysurf Pipe with no other surfers getting in their way. The Tidal 9 Women’s Pipeline Pro features women from around the world competing in three disciplines: body boarding, short boarding, and long boarding. Pipeline provides some of the greatest free shows on earth.
The pipeline is all about catching the wave and getting barreled. Most experienced surfers at Pipe ride surf boards often called Pipe guns. Surfers at Pipeline have larger surf boards than they would use at other locations in order to catch the wave at Pipe. After the tour, if you want to get back to the beach then here’s how you do it. From the airport in Honolulu, travel to the North Shore. The only hotel in the area is the Turtle Bay Resort, located on the north end of the North Shore. But it is possible to find other places to rent out rooms, houses, or hostels in nearby Haleiwa. Abundant are good places to eat and fun things to do on the North Shore.
