This is the far leeward side of Oahu. The reef here is pretty nice. There is great boogie boarding by the tiny island in the center of the photograph. The water is shallow but a good barrel will take you right into the beach. In the distance is Mauna Lahi Lahi. A twenty minute hike to the top.
The sea spray from where I was standing was drenching me. I followed up this shot with a nice dip in the reef pools. This particular reef has many sea urchins living on the side walls. Which makes getting in and out a difficult task. Not enough to stop me.
This photo is from Sunset Beach on North Shore, Hawaii. The sun is setting and the days surf is almost done. This is the home of Pipeline and the famous Sunset main break known for it’s 15 foot swells.
