About Pipes

Pipes lives up to its name when a moderate SSE swell hits the bend of reef, sucks hard and throws lip for some pedal-to-the-metal tube rides. Thick, vertical take-off is challenging and the barrel is quite technical, especially if there's too much W in the swell and the tide is dropping. Handles E trades quite well so it's vey consistent.

Not for the faint-hearted or uninitiated. Bodyboarders love it.
