March 28th, 2012 by John Zanussi

When I hear the name Greg Noll, the first thing to pop into my head is the infamous picture of him standing on the beach in front of macking Pipeline (see above). Noll was known as Da Bull and is one of surfing’s original badasses. He was was one of the first guys to consistently charge big waves in the ’60s and he’s even credited as the first one to surf outside reef Pipeline.
