The first week in Hawaii has produced some incredible waves and images. We have been fortunate enough to see some amazing sunsets, amazing wave and unreal wave riding both body boarding and surfing.

Yesterday was a busy day which consisted of surfing, swimming/shooting, eating and repeating. I swam out to pipeline with my water housing as the swell had died off. Here is a shot of Jase Finlay on a nice little wedge. I have a full sequence of Jase getting pitted but there were too many heads in the way. Maybe next time guys.
The afternoon came and the colour in the water was spectacular, one of my favourite things about Hawaii is the late afternoon light. To get these colours on the Gold Coast I would have to be up super early in the morning (which I struggle with unless there is a new east swell ). Here is one shot of a wave going over the top as I try and capture the oceans good side. More shots to come from this session.
There isn’t much sand at Keiki at the moment as the 15ft swell the day before decided to wash it all away exposing the volcanic rock. Speaking of swell, here is a shot of Jake Stone out at Pipe.
