Wanting Pipe -- 12/17/04
Date: December 17, 2004
Words: Checked out the Pipeline Masters in the early morning. Conditions were absolutely pristine with perfect waves pushing through. I was fortunate to talk story with a lot of old friends, especially Ben Aipa who I sat with for about an hour. Snagged a couple of contest tees from Randy Rarick and headed out to catch a few for myself.
Ended up at L's where the surf was clean, but just a bit funky. Paddled over to H's and on to J's with my bodyboard, savoring some of the big peaks and exciting weirdness. Good fun, but I would've rather gotten a few at Pipe. Maybe next time.
