The reason I called this blog post “where the big waves are” is because….
This photo shoot was on the iconic “Pipeline” beach.
When I told my girl and guy friends I was going to Hawaii they told me I have to go to “The North Shore” and visit Pipeline. I had been to Hawaii before but had never visited the North Shore of Oahu. After hearing the stories about people traveling from all over the world to see this beach, I insisted on visiting… and everyone in family wanted to go anyway haha.
Pipeline is amazing, the waves are really pretty and the sand is so nice. The beach has houses all along it that obviously have the best views. I was enjoying the beach so much I totally forgot the warning my friends gave me about how dangerous the waves can be.
During this photoshoot I was taken out by one of the waves and even my sister Tash was taken out at one point too! It was definitely one of the funniest moments of my trip and proved how strong even the smaller waves of Pipeline can be.
After the trip I found out that the waves at pipeline have been reported to make it up to 50 ft before! Think I’ll stick to Bondi waves for now.
