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.
