Watch: Pipeline // 28th October 2019

While the Vans Pro saw unruly 8-10ft peaks just down the road at Sunset, the Pipeline reefs were fashioning the same swell into a familiar pattern, one that we hadn't seen for six months or so.

It was the opening day at Pipe and all the action was on First Reef. Too big for Backdoor, but not quite big enough for Second Reef, the energy was drawn across the outer reefs, focussing itself on the inside.

The day cleaned up as the trades kicked and really started to shine when the sun sank, backlighting the north-west swell.
