As we await further instruction from the Wozzle about the COVID own goal, Pipeline keeps on putting out for locals.

This ten-minute clip vid from the Colapinto brothers features a host of heavy hitters ripping into perfect Pipe.

For those of you whom the title is lost, here's a three-week ear worm. I refuse to suffer alone.

You're welcome!

Can you even imagine being in that band when the songwriter suggested you’d play that in front of an audience ?

How quickly can you say - “ This band is no longer taking the musical direction I thought it would when I signed up .“

Then you walk.

Then you kick yourself when the remaining band members make a million bucks each playing that happy , harmless dross whilst you’re back to waiting tables and auditioning for local tribute bands.

Carn Ben admit it, that's your favorite youtube clip and it had to be posted.
For me I was out in 2 seconds luckily dodging the ear worm.
Looks like Gath type helmets are the choice of half the crowd.

Got to say this kind of raw footage and a few normal surfers in the mix makes it so much more like you're on the beach watching. Being able to see the positioning, the full takeoff and just hear the sound of the ocean instead of a soundtrack. More please.

Yep.......just when you think Pipeline at that size couldn't be much more chaotic.....a SUP sweeps into one and then promptly becomes an impact zone death weapon.

I imagine if that guy wasn't a respected local that he'd have been at the receiving end of some fairly choice words.

come to think of it those young dudes are probably onto something - that was a million times more entertaining than your typical wsl vid.

damn, seeing all those hot kids crowding in without a care for life or limb and just charging the banzai pipeline makes me want to fling off my mask and walk down the street with a jaunty step, maybe even smile at a cute cashier on my way out the store with my bag of groceries, not even remembering what the letters covid stand for.

Great footage and surfing but that poor dude on the inside watching the SUP go over the falls in front of him at 5 min 12 sec mark. That would be terrifying!!
I'm sorry but WTF is a SUP doing paddling around at crowded pipe - he's a respected local so can get away with it?? Just wrong.
