- Vans Triple Crown of Surfing
From 12 Mon Nov 2012 to 20 Thu Dec 2012
Founded in 1983, the Triple Crown of Surfing event is set at three distinct breaks on the North Shore - Haleiwa, Sunset and Pipeline. Every winter, powerful swells cross thousands of miles of open ocean and descend upon the Hawaiian Islands, creating some of the biggest, most powerful and challenging waves.
Surfers from all over the globe compete in this challenging event. The Triple Crown Champion is the surfer who has the diversity, ability and stamina to excel in the varying surf conditions at the three locations.
