Oahu’s Banzai Pipeline

For those who are looking to see some serious surfing or waves in Hawaii, Oahu’s North Shore is the place to visit. More specifically, you can see a great surf spot at the Banzai Pipeline.

The Banzai Pipeline name comes from a combination of the surf break – Pipeline – and the beach – Banzai Beach.

Only well experienced surfers should surf there. There are many jagged reef elements and lava spires that can cut you up if you fall.

Surfers have options when surfing the Banzai Pipeline, because there are four waves. The most common is the First Reef, also known as Pipeline. This is the wave that is most surfed, and is most photographed.

It is a sobering place for Surfers – many people have died there while trying to master the treacherous waves. The number of deaths at the Pipeline have earned it the nickname the world’s deadliest wave, since more people have died there than any other surf spot.

If you enjoy watching surfing competitions, you can watch the Pipe Masters, which is the final spot of the WCT (World Championship Tour Surfing). The Pipeline Bodysurfing Classic is also held there every winter. Don’t miss out on experiencing the Banzai Pipeline if you are a true surfing fan.
