What am I watching right now? Only the Hurley Pro Sunset Beach surfing championship -- live from the North Shore.
I had two favorite breaks on the North Shore -- Sunset and Pupukea. They were perfect for right-footed surfers like me, whereas Pipeline was great for goofy-footers. Of course, back in the late 60s the crowds were much smaller than they are today, and the North Shore was much less territorial.
Sunset was the ultimate performance big wave. A wipeout here will really humble you.
