The Banzai Pipeline (or Pipe as it is known) is a surf reef break break off Ehukai Beach, North Shore Oahu, Hawaii. Pipe is world reknowned for BIG heavy shore break waves, it breaks over shallow reef forming perfect barrels. There is no room for error when surfing this wave, only for the brave!
Our collection of BIG wave beads have been created using a technique referred to as ‘gravity’ beads. The glass is heated to such a high temperature that you are then able to mix and swirl the glass together creating beautiful patterns. These patterns represent the powerful swirling and tumbling of enormous waves when they hit shallow off shore reefs. Although the same colour glass has been used for each bead, the technique makes each bead completely unique. We’ve added a little sparkle to portray the magic and excitement of watching BIG waves!
Each Nalu Bead is individually handmade so please expect there to be variations in every bead. This is what makes your Nalu unique.
