November was a memorable month for us. Although we did not get any huge Waimea Bay swell, the Banzai Pipeline flared up for what seemed like weeks on end. Everyone was exhausted before the real deal even started. This watershot was taken at noon on Sunday, November 24th. Swell was solid, rising, and simply gorgeous at the Banzai. The water was crystal clear and the action was serving heaps of adrenaline. Makana Pang took off super deep on this set wave close to OTW, then the wave suddenly grew in size and became impressively wide. Everyone on the channel screamed at how mutant the whole moment looked. Pang is, without a doubt, one of the North Shore’s most committed young guns, not holding anything back when the waves get nuts and shallow.
