The Backdoor Shootout, put on by Da Hui, is not your average contest. 8 teams with 4 surfers compete for the bragging rights of Pipeline and Backdoor. Rather than an elimination format, every one of the Pipe standouts partaking in the competition get to surf four 30-minute heats, and are ranked based on their top five scoring waves of the event.Jamie O'Brien, Alex Gray, Anthony Walsh, and Cheyne Magnusson make up Team Body Glove for 2012, and were met with beautiful weather and some amazing waves. Team Body Glove was in the lead after Day 1 and Jamie O'Brien was in the lead after Day 2. Greg Browning said that it is pretty much as good as it gets and that Day 1 was one of the best days of the year. Stay tuned... we are expecting some waves on Wed and Thurs.
