A Closer Look At Hawaii’s Legendary Banzai Pipeline

There’s no doubt about it: Hawaii has got it all in terms of natural beauty, but the island paradise’s biggest pride may just be a massive surf break located off Oahu’s North Shore. The Banzai Pipeline, or Pipe for short, is one of the most famous surfing spots in the world, and with swells reaching up to 30 feet, almost everyone in Hawaii is obsessed with the impressive surf break.

Taken in 2013, this video compilation of the Banzai Pipeline shot by Eric Sterman is absolutely mesmerizing, and we simply can’t get enough. 

So, tell us, will you be heading up to watch the waves this winter? Or are you skilled and brave enough to take them on?
