Hats off to Kala Grace for his 12-point ride!

The Da Hui Backdoor shootout concluded late Sunday and Pipe delivered…BIG Time. Waves were double-Triple ++ overhead, consistent, and clean most all day. Bethany Hamilton goes Richter, and awarded for it! Moana Wong, also was awarded not with cash, but a perfect Pipe bomb; she knifed into the beast gracefully in her final heat and got spat out.

The Da Hui Backdoor Shootout featured a unique format with 33-minute heats, scores were a bit sporadic, the boys underground and informative broadcast gave viewers a feel for the underground culture of the North Shore. It’s a grassroots Surf contest, but with superstars, at the world’s most deadly wave, with heavyweight commentary, and legitimate broadcast infrastructure to create an entertaining online event. Slab Mag.

There’s not a whole lot to say about the event really, other than, more please. Waves were pumping, performances were incredible, and the overall tone, by virtue of it being a contest run for surfers by surfers, featuring men and women, teams etc… worked. Really well.

What a great little innovation on a surf contest.
