Pipeline (AKA Banzai Pipeline) is a reef break famous for its huge waves that often form large, hollow barrels and thicks curls of water that surfers ride inside of.
There are three reefs at Pipeline in progressively deeper water further out to sea. During large winter swells the third reef will break. It is one of the most difficult, dangerous, yet perfect waves in the world.
The main break at Pipeline is a left breaking wave. There is usually a large crowd and some of the best surfers in the world will be in the lineup.
The right breaking wave at Pipeline is known as Backdoor and is an extremely fast breaking barrel over a shallow reef.
There are a number of major contests held there each winter. The Volcom Triple Crown is a series of contests that feature the best professional surfers in the world.
Lay (lei) Day for the Volcom Pipe Pro. Forecast looks good for some surf in the next few days. Looking forward to watching the live stream.
