Fearsome Break

Set off Sunset Beach Park, Banzai Pipeline is one of the most fabled surf breaks on Oahu's North Shore--and thus one of the most fabled surf breaks in the world, period. In winter especially, epic waves that may be 20 feet high snarl over a shallow reef here. Needless to say, top-tier surfers face a major (and irresistible) challenge on the Pipeline, which has claimed many lives over the years. If you don't have the skills or inclination to try surfing Banzai Pipeline yourself--and good chance you don't--it's still amazing to kick back from the safety of the shore and watch those who do. And even without the watermen and -women doing their thing, the roaring curls of the ocean here make an unforgettable North Shore spectacle.
