Accident at Pipe
In her youth, Noelani was involved in an incident at the Banzai Pipeline when she was tandem surfing with an unnamed ladyfriend. The girls were thrown by a rogue wave and separated when it crashed on top of them, snapping their surfboard in two. Although Noelani searched for her, she never saw her surfing partner again. This experience deeply affected Noelani and caused her to be extremely cautious thereafter.
