Not going to lie ... I'm kind of freaking about the start of the season at Pipe. I love this time of year. Can't wait to see the boys and girls get amongst it at Pipe and the first pulses of the year always get the crew pysching... and with the potential start of a new Championship Tour season kicking off in little more than a month's time, December is lining up to be crazy.

Check this Vlog from the North Shore's Koa Rothman. He offers up a full scene report on what's going down. Koa has been scoring some incredible waves in October over the last few years and believes we are "on track for a seriously amazing winter."

With that stamp of approval from Koa, check out this clip and froth out on sick early-season Pipeline and Backdoor.
