There's a pretty famous surf competition going on at Pipeline this week and it will decide the world champion of surfing for this year. But there's also been and will continue to be some really rad surfing happening up and down the beach.
The North Shore is one of surfing's wonders of the world. A rock with every kind of wave you can think up breaking into it. It's wild and warm, a rebel's paradise near the sea. Our own Nate Lawrence has been laying in the sand, climbing mountains, swimming in the impact zone and wandering through the houses, documenting one of the true spectacles in surfing.
