November ain't the most favourite time of year for Euro shredders. Days get considerably shorter, air temperatures plummet, the north westerlies can howl for weeks at a time. Luckily Hawaii's North Shore contest season is something to get excited about. Sunset already pumped for the Hic Pro (won by Sunny!) and Haleiwa's waiting period starts tomorrow so make sure you stay tuned to www.vanstriplecrownofsurfing.com
