Stand Up Paddling at Pipeline wasn’t always the done thing in the past. Pipeline is an impressive wave that breaks over a shallow reef on O’ahu’s North Shore. It’s only in the last few years that SUPers have been more welcomed in the Pipeline line up and the competition scene. But it’s still only a select crew of SUPers who are able to, and are allowed to surf Pipeline… but this is probably a good thing with its tight take off zone! Accidents between boards, bodies and rocks are a frequent occurrence and throwing a bigger SUP with a rider who doesn’t know what they’re doing into the mix, could be a deadly combination.
