Monday Photos: Off The Wall

It’s like Pipeline, only grouchier. Off The Wall is about a 45 second paddle from the world’s most famous peak, but it’s not a different world. A different hemisphere, maybe, but the concept remains the same: paddle into wave that could break you, make drop, scoop, stand, hope for the best. The only difference is that Pipe is exponentially more crowded and the closeouts. Ohhh the closeouts. OTW is full of them. Nevertheless, the wave produces some of our favorite photos season after season. This season was no different and so here is SURFING’s humble ode to Pipeline’s fiery brother.
