Oakley and I were on the road in the early morning headed to watch the Finals at the Billabong Pipe Masters at Pipeline, North Shore. There were enormous crowds of people swarming the streets, stretching their necks to get the best view. Cars were jammed miles from the contest all looking and waiting for a place to park, and parking was inexisitent. We drove up the windward side of the island (eastern coastline) to beat the traffic. It helped tremulously because we found a parking spot minutes from the central watch spot. We filled our area next to the thousands of other fans participating in this years 2015 Van's Triple Crown of Surfing.
