Watch: “This is Livin” Backdoor Shootout Opening Ceremony


In this episode on Koa Rothman’s “This is Livin” we get an inside look at the very underground but super authentic opening ceremony of Da Hui’s Backdoor Shootout, which is currently taking place at Pipe.

Tons of swell, great format, etc.

One on the best non-WSL events running these days.

As is the norm on the North Shore when some sell fills in, one spot or another lights up. On this day, it’s the rarely filmed Laniakea having her day. Shot from a very unique angle, Koa and the boys show just how fun this wave is but also the unique point-like nature of the spot.
