NORTH SHORE (HawaiiNewNow) - The Volcom Pipeline Pro offers points toward world tour qualification and the always coveted wildcard berths into the pipeline masters. Malika Dudley is live on the North Shore with the latest.
Broken boards, spitting barrels, helacious wipeouts, memorable rides - expect it all because Pipeline is awake and the Volcom Pipeline Pro hits the start button at 8:30am. Waves peaked at over 20-foot Hawaiian scale in the wee hours of this-morning, washing across Kamehameha Highway and running up into beachfront properties. Wave face heights at select spots measured in excess of 40 feet. This-morning it is settling into a beautiful groove as the offshores return and waves are peaking from Pipeline's second reef. Watch the event live at Volcom.com/pipelinepro.
In Hawaii, watch live on Oceanic Time Warner Cable channel 250 and 1250. Requiring just three days of competition, the Volcom Pipeline Pro holding period continues through to February 5. For exclusive Volcom Pipeline Pro video, photos and more, go to Transworldsurf.com.

Volcom has always been dedicated to Hawaii - from supporting a team of world-class Hawaiian athletes and ambassadors, to giving back to the community through local charitable events, sponsorships and organizations. The Volcom Pipeline Pro is Volcom's next step in their commitment to Hawaii.
