Each season on the North Shore a myriad of dramas are playing out. WSL competitors seek world title glory and the gratification that comes with WCT qualification. In a surfing Battle Royal, free-surfing chargers and Hawaiian standouts joust for the best waves, the best footage, the best photos and the coveted wave of the winter. Meanwhile a cast of regular-joe locals stand on the sidelines as their beloved seven-mile stretch is transformed into the most hectic surfing stage on earth. If you are paying attention the North shore has it all.
