“hang ten!”

Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii is world famous for its tubular wave created where the shallow water and coral shelf combine to resemble pipes, thus giving this beach its name. The phrase “Banzai” which is actually a Japanese word spelled Bonsai and meaning the art of growing dwarfed shaped trees in small shallow pots was given to this beach in 1961 when Bruce Brown, a famous surf cinematographer, shouted out "Banzai" as Phil Edwards took off on one of these barbarous waves.  When the waves are steep and powerful, they break furiously on the shallow hawaiian reef . So if the surf's up, beware! Amateurs and beginners are better off not chancing this break, the Pipeline at full strength is unforgiving, even for the pros. Spring and summer is considered the calmer months when the waves are usually flat.  Activities such as snorkeling, scuba, jet ski, swimming, and sun bathing are heaven like. During the summer, pipeline as well as the entire North Shore offers a calm that befits its rural setting. Some of the most beautiful sights Hawaii has to offer in the deep cool blue waters of the Pacific are here on the North Shore.
