The biggest night in surfing is right around the corner. That’s right, Surfer Awards, the surf world’s annual gala, is returning to Turtle Bay Resort on December 6. For more than five decades, Surfer Magazine has organized the awards show, which sees the publication’s readers vote on their favorite male and female surfers, as well as a host of other awards, including best movie and best maneuver.
As varied of a wave as any on the North Shore, Haleiwa, also commonly known as Ali’i Beach Park, can play the role of seduction with her near-perfect lines and open face just as easily as she can play the role of a malicious monster with her thunderous inside bowl and shoulder-searing currents. As the maiden event in the Tripe Crown, whose holding period begins on November 12, Haleiwa holds a special place in the heart of all North Shore surfers as it was right here, amid these hallowed waves, that many of our greatest surfers actually learned to surf.
