Tales From The North Shore Of Oahu

There's a new sign on the bike path at Pipeline that is just beautiful. It's got the winner of every Pipeline Masters champion from Jeff Hakman in 1971 to Taj Burrow last year. Who will get their name engraved onto it this year?

The other side of the sign is has the names of North Shore lifeguards who have put in 25 years and more of service, people who died while surfing Pipeline, surfing legends that passed before their time, and those who helped make the sign a reality.

Tonight at Sunset Elementary School is the annual 'Surf Night" where a bunch of the pros sign autographs and hand out tons of product to the local kids. The kids love it and it's a cool way for the guys to give back a bit.

Only on the North Shore do you see freshly snapped sticks waiting for the trashman to pick them up.

Someone say they want to see more of the Coté bros? Check out this fat little merman that washed up after swimming to Hawaii from the mainland...

Friday 5:30PM Pretty mellow day today as we had a big night last night at a few Off The Wall houses. The New Era/ASP trading card contest winner Anthony Dileva went out with a bang (and a bit of a hangover) as we tore it up at the house here before going to check out Luke Egan and the Billabong guys at OTW. Anthony was psyched to meet a few pros and get a tour of the house. It’s “Surf Night” tonight at Sunset Beach Elementary school which is across the Kam Highway from Pipe. The groms are psyching on free schwag and autographs. Waves were just overhead today and the swell was N/NE making for right point-like conditions from Rocky Point to Off The Wall. The trades are pretty stiff but it glassed off this evening and I just saw two dudes spilt the peak at Log Cabins and both get barreled. Sweet. Check out the photos from “The Eddie” Opening Ceremony. There are a few of Bruce Irons in there that are really powerful. Bruce flew over from Kauai for the ceremony and for many, it was the first time to see and talk to him since his brother’s passing. Hopefully for him it was good to see old friends. Click through to the next page for more…
