North Shore Times!

Its finally feeling like its wintertime on the North Shore! Pipe has been doing its thing even though most of the days have been consumed by contests! All the boogies are arriving and putting in the time for the Pipe event. Garner has arrived and his energy is flowing through the whole crew in a super productive way. The forecast for the contest is looking pretty darn good!!! Two solid NW swells are lining up for the contest waiting period! I have a couple of quick little edits of some of da rookies crew and close family that I will be throwing up. More updates to come during contest time!! Pretty stoked on this years tour should be legit!! IBA crew is keeping it classy!!

Hope the comp looks like this!! Photo Riedel!!
