All I needed was a comp day at work and off I went. It was time to catch a glimpse of the final leg of the Triple Crown of Surfing at Banzai Pipeline in the North Shore for the Billabong Pipe Masters.
I was on the road before sunrise. Relaxing on the beach with a book until the morning call time. First up was Kelly Slater. It wasn't long before I witnessed the perfect 10. The waves were anywhere from six to ten feet.
After catching Joel Parkinson's win I headed into town. I stopped by Matsumo Grocery for some of their infamous shaved ice.
It was a great start to another Hawaiian weekend.
