Hawaii's North Shore never plays favorites and that was apparent in the early goings at the Volcom Pipe Pro. It wasn't the iconic Pipeline fans are used to on opening day and tough conditions left the door open for a lot of unknowns. Competitors were at the mercy of Mother Nature for nearly the entire day of proceedings and those who rose to the occasion came away with the spoils.
The event ran through Round 1 and Round 2 Heats 1-11, but not before getting a surprise spectacle to close out opening day affairs.
