BANZAI PIPELINE, Oahu, Hawaii, USA (Wednesday, January 31, 2024) – Opening day of the World Surf League (WSL) 2024 Championship Tour (CT) season got underway at Stop No. 1, the Lexus Pipe Pro Presented by YETI, with an exciting day of competition held in solid, six-to-eight foot, offshore tubes at Pipeline.

The iconic North Shore break delivered heavy, hollow waves all day to complete the first two rounds of the menā€™s event, eventually dealing the first eliminations of the season to an unlucky few.
