It's a beautiful photo of a heavy wave. Why do people feel the need to say this is better than that? Do the waves care? Of course they don't!

Puts pipeline in its box! Not saying pipe is a mediocre wave.... far from it, but this wave is just nuts! Its location, how you get to it and how freakin heavy it is, all make for.... well, just look at the pic! Great shot man!

i think what's interesting is to think that if Gerry Lopez had been pioneering stylish dropins at Lahinch for all of those years he spent at Pipe then the wave would still probably be relatively quiet compared to Hawaii thanks to the rawness of the whole deal, & it's thanks 2 timing & climate that pipe stands head & shoulders above other waves in the general mentality of the surf world. The Pipeline is effectively the Beatles of the surf world; an incredible freak of nature that was born in a unique time & can never be born or effectively 'beaten' again...

Portpipe's avatar

Portpipe Dec 11, 2011 Rating: 10

its stupid to even compare Rileys to Pipe, Ireland to Hawaii. if you dig the warm sunshine and girls in bikinis and supercrowded lineups then Pipe is your man. if you dig livestock as your spectators, no crowds and the cold isolation of irish surfing then great. silly to compare 2 totally different waves

Goodfish's avatar

Goodfish Dec 11, 2011 Rating: 8

I think the main thing people are confused about is why are waves being put in boxes?

sdfjkljklsh's avatar

puts pipeline in its box?? It doesn't matter how thick or heavy this wave is. No break will ever put pipeline in its box.

I think you'll find Greg Long who won the Eddie is a fan if the big waves here and was one of the first to surf Aileens in Lahinch...admittedly it has not got the beach life factor due to cold weather etc. I mean Hawaii is a tropical paradise...people generally do flock to tropical paradises, surf or no surf. If you focus solely on the surf...you have to admit its pretty good here too and would rival anything on the north shore. The main difference is temperature...

El capitan, are you still mad about that blowjob I owe you? Tell you what, suck my dick again, and I'll owe you two!! And explain to your mom that it was only hard to find because it was hiding from her!! If she brought the bag for her head (like her website said she would) I coulda got my groove on!

Dang. I did my best to elevate this thread above the chest thumping, crotch grabbing, poo slinging, level. All for nought. (However, I suspect comparing the two waves is like comparing apples and screw drivers. But I'll never ride either, nor am I likely to ever see either (the waves, that is - of course I've ridden apples and screw drivers, and I highly recommend the former (the latter, not so much)).

tjo, I've spoken to some bitches that have ridden your dick. They said it was incredibly hard to find, and when located, small and messy.

Pipe vs Lahinch, my dick vs your dick.... You bitches can't compare them til you've ridden them both

I gave you a +1, as without your initial comment all context would be lost. Now I have to get back to ogling the girls in bikinis at Lahinch - but damn the crowds.

oh I forgot that hundreds of thousand of people flock to "Lahinch" every year. Not just to see the beautiful beach and women, but to prove themselves on the best waves on Earth. The top pro's of the sport all come together on the most famous stretch of beach in the world ...Irelands "Lahinch" .

Trevor Murphy's avatar

Trevor Murphy Dec 10, 2011 Rating: -22

seen it and been there and all of you are still wrong..get over it . Pipeline is the greatest left barrel on earth , dont even think that Lahinch even comes close . Its a tow slab nothing more.

All testosterone aside, we've got a load of pipe pics in the Proper Pumping Pipe link to compare this to. I've not been to either break, but this lip is the heavier. Mostly I don't give a $#!+ about pics of waves I'd never attempt, or will never be able to get to, but this pic is a work of art.
