whitey - sponged here over thanksgiving...awesome spot! im an above average rider but far from pro. if you bring a good attitude and cheer a couple people on, everyone will do the same for you....just be cool and people will be cool with you...the locals aren't that bad.

the wave is powerful and will kick your ass....i pulled a hamstring was done after about ten rides, so stretch well!!!

off me balls - yeh i've surfed this wave several times and pretty much been the standout guy. the reef is soft as compared to my haemorrhoids as the wave is full on mellow. kind of like a mal wave. dont worry about the locals they wont cause you any trouble and they couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag. they love it when visitors snake them on set waves and give them the stinkeye when paddling back out. i remember i snaked kala alexander at pipe on a third reef bomb one day twice in a matter of minutes. good times. he didnt mind though cos he knows if there was any trouble i would give him and anyone else with him a touch up. a good way of getting a quicker turn in the line-up is to save up a shit and when the guys next in line drop in, crap in ya hand and throw it at em. that will put them off and hopefully they will get swallowed by the foamball which in turn, speeds up the cycle. shit flinging in the line-up in hawaii is totally acceptable and i myself have been responsible for some big shit fights. this usually leads to the carpark where i teach the locals how to cop a fly kick to the jaw. bad manners is welcome everywhere in hawaii and it is actually preferred that you abuse hotel staff rather than give them a tip. "hurry the hell up and change my jizz stained bath towels!" is a great one to start off with. all of the houses out the front of pipeline are what i call "free for all" houses if your hungry after a surf just cruise on into any house and help yourself to whatever you need. if one of the pros is sitting in YOUR seat when you come in from the surf just push them out of it and tell them to get their own. all boards in these houses are free so if you see something you like just take it. clothesline shopping is fine too. also regarding taking a dump, the local toilet beach "poo-pakea" is where you can go to lay turds in the sand. you can also throw turds at the beachfront houses.the homeowners, they like this because the locals believe that the crap slopped all over their house protects it from the salt air and certain decay over time. ill be back in hawaii next this season dominating as usual and kicking a few heads in if i feel like it. just stay out of my way whhen im at off the wall because i didnt pay for my airfare to have all you kooks surf with me at my holiday local.

Very fun - I went here when pipe was to crowded when I was visiting oahu. Very hollow fun wave. With a nice pretty reef waiting for you underneath.
