The 2012 Da Hui Backdoor Shootout kicked off this weekend in absolutely stellar conditions at the famed Banzai Pipeline. A team and individual based event, the Shootout is a grass-roots contest that is unlike any of the others—no live Web cast, no press releases, no jerseys, and no ASP sanctioning. It’s straight balls out charging at surfing’s ultimate arena. With two days completed and one remaining, Reef McIntosh leads the individual field while Volcom is ahead in the team portion of the event. Word has it that Thursday may be the next day the Shootout runs, stay tuned!
