The Pipeline Issue
Fear. It’s a central part of the surfing experience, even if it’s seldom acknowledged. From pros to beginners, all who enter the water know what it’s like to encounter a situation beyond their abilities. We hope to overcome our jitters in that moment. But how? For clues we turn in this issue to “Pipeline,” a wave on the North Shore of Oahu that is now at its most intimidating as Arctic storms roll south and mix with the tropical air of the Western Pacific. You can read issue 2 as a digital magazine or scroll through the articles on your phone, tablet or desktop.
