9 more shots to savour from the Shore

By Andrew Lewis

Yes, we're all a little depressed that the North Shore season is coming to an end. But what a season it was! Michel Bourez finally claimed the Pipe Master title he seemed destined for, and Christmas Day delivered a session for the history books.

Even as the sun set on the 2016 North Shore contest season, Ryan Miller and Trevor Moran were there to pick off the last best moments. Below you will find nine of them. But fear not, Hawaii's secret season is just kicking into gear so stay tuned for more action in the coming weeks and months.
