Billabong Pipeline Masters 2019, the greatest – and most dangerous – arena in surfing

 

Pipeline Masters is the 11th stop on the Men’s Championship Tour 2019, and the final event of the 2019 season. If WSL has their way, a world champion will be crowned at the Billabong Pipe Masters competition on Banzai Pipeline on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Statistically speaking, Pipeline is the most deadly wave in the world and considered the holy grails of surf competition. With its shallow reef and massive Pacific swells, every year surfers are seriously injured surfing there. This is not a wave for amateurs. A rough wipeout can not only send you underwater, it can churn you along the reef – and if you’ve ever cut yourself on sharp coral edges, you know how dangerous that can be. Danger aside though, when it comes to spectating, there aren’t many waves better suited for a serious surf competition than the Banzai. The wave breaks very close to shore and all you have to do is pull up some sand and take a seat to see some of the most breath-taking wave riding you’ll ever see.

The North Shore is considered the “Mecca” of surfing, and thanks to Pipeline, Sunset Beach and Waimea it certainly lives up to its reputation. In November and December every year the Triple Crown of Surfing comes to the North Shore and attracts surf talent from around the world. Pipe Masters is just one of several surfing competitions at this break – the Volcom Pipe Pro, Pipeline Bodysurfing Classic & IBA Pipeline Pro all call this wave home too.

The only hotel on the North Shore is The Turtle Bay Resort, which can be a bit costly, so look to source AirBnB to find an affordable room or house to rent. There are plenty of good places to eat and shop in Haleiwa, and if you want to go explore the island, a trip to Waikiki on the South Shore is a must. When it comes to a surf trip to Hawaii, everyone has to do it at least once.
