Pipe's Big Opening Day

THE day that was, Monday, November 15th, 2010. Crowds ringing the waterline as the North Shore flagship stood tall, took a bow and threw throaty tubes all blinking day.

Whether it was more crowded in the line-up or land is difficult to quantify, but the usual suspects and a few of the top 32 took home the headlines.

Cast: Kai Otten, Damien Hobgood, Jay Thompson, Nainoa Surratt, Kieren Perrow, Dean Morrison, Julian Wilson, Sion Milosky, Kainoa McGee, Mickey Bruneau and Kalani Chapman.
