Made of 3 reefs in increasingly deep water, no matter the swell size, the reef churns out deadly powerful and heavy waves over a jagged coral reef. It is home to the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.

Best on a NNW swell at 6-10 feet. Experience surfers only.

Even if you ain't good enough to surf, the break is close to the beach and makes it a perfect spot to watching!

Great beach to watch the surfers. Amazing waves and beautiful sunset!/ ótima praia para ver os surfistas. Ondas gigantes e um pôr-do-sol maravilhoso!

Not for the amateur weekend warrior surfer or for that matter even a "good" surfer. This wave is for the elite, not only because waves power but also they dont like kooks, too dangerous to play here.

The spot for surfing, but in the summer there weren't many waves

Stayed in a beach house right on the Pipeline. It was beautiful and peaceful. Watching surfing all day long.

This spot is amazing, you will see the best surfers in the world here. Don't be fooled by a lower looking surf day either, this spot is NOT for beginners

Front row for watching the pro contests and punishing waves.

Grab a chair and watch some choice waves at the world famous banzai pipeline. Always entertaining. Expect a crowd and photographers sprinkled throughout.

Watch some dare devils surf and boogie board. If you want to get in the water but don't want to die, there's a nice wading area

Check the surf reports if you're in Hawaii. We took a last minute trip to see the 20-25 footers and caught a contest. It was worth it!

Best waves on Oahu. It's worth the trip up here if you're staying on the south shore.
