Dodging Rain Squalls at Pipe - w/ GALLERY

GALLERY: http://photos.oahusurfshots.com/Other/Pipeline-03-10-2011/16146226_bLNAa...

Here's the gallery from Pipe today. I drove the full length of the country early and everywhere was looking a little funky. I figured Sunset would be dealing with the swell as good as anywhere and jumped in there. I got mowed down by a couple of bombs, snagged a couple of marginal ones and headed in.

I found a little window between rain squalls and snapped some pictures at Pipeline. There were a few bombs sneaking through and the small crew out there were scoring some fun ones. The next rain squall blew through and I figured it was a good excuse to swap my camera for my board and jump in the mix at pipe. The waves were about 4 to 6 feet with maybe the odd plus. The trade winds were blowing around 15 to 20 mph. There was a bit or weird back wash action from all the sand build up making some of the drops a little more exciting. I didn't get too many photos because the rain kept blowing through (or the waves looked too fun).

How about Kelly taking out the Snapper contest? I'm a huge Kelly fan but I got to admit I was pulling for Taj. It'd be good to see Taj snag a title before he's over the hill. His surfing is looking sick too.
