It’s been a busy one on the North Shore. Swell after swell after big, perfect swell have been massaging the island, rubbing Pipeline in the most perfect of ways. It’s been non-stop and there’s hardly been opportunity for an air reverse. There has, however, been opportunity to Live Like Sion. In honor of the late Milosky, the 2013-2014 Steep And Deep photo challenge will be one for the books. There are already a pixelated plethora of amazing entries and, with one month left, the North Pacific doesn’t see why there won’t be room for more. For a full breakdown of the challenge, click here or visit LiveLikeSion.com. And, for now, enjoy this gallery of some of our favorite waves from this relentless season.
