Hawaii North Shore Pipe 02

I have been to the North Shore several times over the years but either I went during wrong time of the year or wrong time of the day, I did not see perfect "Pipe wave" and really good surfers. This time I was in Hawaii, I caught the 2011 Hawaiian Pipemasters event and watched top surfers from around the world challenging breathtaking waves. This one was taken at sunset, after trying to focus on the surfers, I took this one to capture the "Pipe", which gained its name right here at this location.
