Located on the island that created surfing, the Banzai Pipeline, or simply "Pipeline" or "Pipe", is a surf reef break found off Ehukai Beach Park on Oahu's North Shore. Banzai Pipeline, thusly named back in 1961, is one of the heaviest waves in the world – its average wave is 9 feet but can get bigger.
During the peak winter months (November to February), the beaches of the North Shore host top surfing competitions including the Pipe Masters (Board Surfing), the IBA Pipeline Pro (Bodyboarding), and the Pipeline Bodysurfing Classic. From May to September, the waves are far smaller and more gentle, and these summer swells are much better suited to beginners.
