i have been dreaming of this picture for a long time. here is why. i have only been on maui during the summers since i started to take photography seriously and in the summers, well, surf is small. i like the small waves for myself but to watch, to photograph, make 'um bigger! long winter's in pennsylvania had me dreaming of photographing big waves. i think the surfing calendar i got every year for my wall also helped the dream. so when the first winter swell hit this week i knew i had to get myself over to honolua and just enjoy the action.
no this isn't ready for surfer magazine and yes i had to crop it a lot because i can't afford a real long lens yet, but i still love it! look at the shadow on the wave...how cool!
