The North Shore Lifeguards are the best watermen in the world saving the lives of thousands of visitors to the North Shore each year. They also organize a bodysurfing contest at the Pipeline on an annual basis. Below is a short summary of the contest written by contest director Rick Williams as well as photos.

2009 ke kaha nalu hanana ‘o ehukai….when translated literally means bodysurfing experience at pipeline. this seasons event was recently held in very contestable 1-3 foot peaks in front of the lifeguard tower. a record 60 men and women put on a display of waveriding grace, despite the difficult wave size. once again the two man rescue race proved to be the highlight of the afternoon. congratulations to watermen Mike Stewart, Jeff Hubbard, and Ikaika Kalama for schooling all the rest of us…aloha
