Day one for the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout left competitors on their toes and often scratching for the horizon. The day started with the longboard, SUP, and Bodysurf divisions and rounded the day out with the main event. With the smaller sets approaching in the morning, the anticipation of a rising WNW-NW swell would turn out to be survival mode for the competitors. Some great rides went down such as Gavin Beschens OTW drainer and Pipeline’s own Jamie O’Brien snagged the only open set that came through Pipe. Check out the highlights from day one as we expect another run of swell to grace the shores of the Banzai Pipeline.
