In 1993 Derek Ho became Hawaii’s 1st World Champ…

And nearly 30 years later he’s still charging Pipe…in his mid 50’s!

Recently a big swell hit the North Shore of Oahu. Possibly the last solid swell for Hawaii this season (or so we thought…the biggest NNW on record -for mid-May- peaks Saturday, May 16. SNN)

Pipeline had some BOMBS roll through and the boys were ready to ride.

Luckily we are still able to surf and exercise here in Hawaii.
