Been some amazing sessions at pipeline lately, heh.

Some beauties on YouTube for those of us who don’t have the inclination, ability or testicular size to get into it for ourselves.

Walsh , Rothman , JOB.

Re: Walsh's pit - So good

Amazing how much more impressive the water view is than the front view.

The water view and front view are like seeing two different waves.

I watched Nathan Florence's blog and it showed what these guys go through to be n position for one of these days. It cuts between his go-pro which looks like a small duck dive to the beach shot and his ducking under 10 foot plus wash throughs.

You see Anthony Walsh in the impact zone after not making one taking a bunch on the head.

Yeah saw that vlog too. Something about that little go pro that just couldn’t do the size and seriousness justice. Would’ve been psycho and N-Flo is just giggling like a asylum escapee. He seems like a very happy young man, and why not?

Yes he seems to be able to remain calm where I would be thinking I am about to die.

Its interesting that its all Pipeline, Backdoor and OTW

If you take Ian Walshs 10 point wave the year he won at Jaws I wonder why that doesnt rate as a contender for wave of the winter. It was like a pipeline wave on steroids.

Is this restricted to those waves ?

GreenCT - it is for the North Shore wave of the winter and also can’t be from a WSL sanctioned event.
