The Megabender Ends But The Party Has Just Started For The Locals
I know it’s been a couple days since the last post but I fell into a downward spiral the final day of the Pipe Masters. The minute the comp ended it seems like the entire North Shore went into full on party mode. Jamie O’Brien’s house had a DJ and tons of underage girls jammed into the yard, the Billabong house had a caterer and open Peligroso bar, the Volcom house had Jeff The Brotherhood playing on the lawn and the TransWorld SURF house was off the hook for two days in a row.
As Monday dawned we scraped a few bodies off the floor, cleaned up some sketchy things found around the house, and watched as car after car drove down the Kam Highway laden with board bags and luggage. As the visitors leave, the locals here on the North Shore rejoice as they get to celebrate the real beginning of the season. It’s been great to see all our old friends and make new ones from around the world.
Aloha and mahalo to the entire North Shore from TransWorld SURF, see you in January for the Volcom Pipe Pro!—Justin Coté
