Pro-surfers, celebrities, tourists, and locals alike flock to the North Shore from Nov 12th to December 20th provided the surf’s up, the swell is good, the waves are barreling, and the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing is up and running. This is the Superbowl of Surfing.
Each of the three events of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing has a two-week ‘holding period’ within which to run, requiring just 4-5 days of excellent surf to be completed. Support your favorite surfers; Sebastien Zietz, John John Florence, Ramzi Boukhaim, Kolohe Andino, Tanner Hendrickson, Kelly Slater, Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning, Chris Ward, and many others, as they shred their stuff at the Reef Hawaiian Pro (Haleiwa), the Vans World Cup of Surfing (Sunset Beach from November 25th to December 6th), and the Billabong Pipe Masters (Banzai Pipeline, December 8th to 20th, 2012).
