By Ross Williams. If you were patient enough there was a really good tube ride to be found. That was the order of the day at the Volcom Pipe Pro when surfers woke up Sunday morning to four to six feet of windy, wonky treasures. After the size, chaos and carnage of Sunday, the second day of the contest saw the conditions a lot more tame, but nonetheless, there was still plenty of dodging, ducking and diving to maneuver in and out of the barrel. A strong 15 to 25 mph trade wind whipping across the North Shore didn't help matters. Just the same, there were a lot of good rides that went down and plenty of guys showed why they're paid to surf.

HONOLULU - (Jan. 28, 2012)
-- The Banzai Pipeline caught everyone off guard Saturday. Waves doubled and tripled in size from one heat to the next before the opening day of competition at The Volcom Pipe Pro was called off due to dangerous conditions at 10:30am. Only seven heats and three hours of competition were held, yet still sufficient time for injuries, wipeouts and hairball rides to be registered. Waves maxed out in the 15+ foot range local scale.

Jamie O'Brien goes surfing with two boards

Jamie O'Brien goes surfing with two boards

Jamie O'Brien believes there's always something new to doin modern surfing. The creative Hawaiian icon decided to go surfing with two boards. No, it's not one surfboard for each foot. That would be wave skiing. O'Brien decided to test a two-board transfer while preparing to get barreled.

"I just think that the best surfer out there is the one having the most fun. Sometimes I see too much seriousness in the lineup. I'm trying to do something I've never done before, something different. I like a challenge"

the what when and why of our waves winds and weather


Tuesday 1/24/12

NPAC: the Jet is set up in a winter pattern (low, consolidated and stretching past the dateline) allowing for storms to be enhanced and steered to longitudes near Hawaii; its also affecting our winds and weather patterns with a cycle between lite variables/Konas to regular Trades.

Currently...Late today Tuesday we'll see some double over head NW with 14 seconds peaking Wednesday to just below advsry level 5-7’ NW from a severe gale that spawned our side of the dateline just 1000 miles away Sunday/Monday and tracking quickly ENE into Alaska as it intensifies.
