Driving around the islands, you’ll often see a bumper sticker that says, “Lucky We Live Hawaii.” A grateful bunch, the locals here. For those that don’t call the Rainbow State home, we’re, “Lucky We Visit Hawaii”, and yes, it’s that fortunate season. The time of year when the surf universe squeezes into a tiny stretch of white sand between verdant hills and a powerful, unrelenting Pacific Ocean, to a surf spot called Pipeline. It’s where egos are bruised or bolstered, where champions are crowned or toppled, and where the boom of the surf is matched only by the roar of the crowd. Welcome to the last stop of the 2017 Championship Tour.
