In my last post, I mentioned having a workshop on the next day with big waves – and it did not disappoint! Jackie and I had worked together the last two years and this year we decided to do a two day photo workshop, allowing us more time to get to some of the further out spots of Maui and the Hana side. The first day, Jaws was breaking BIG – like, 40+ feet – so after a quick sunrise shoot at Ho’okipa Point, we made our way down the road to Pe’ahi.
Over the course of the next 90 minutes, we both shot many frames of these incredible surfers riding these beautiful epic waves.
We have had a number of large swells this winter here in Hawaii that has produced waves up to 30 feet and beyond – mostly on the North and West facing shores. It sounds like the largest swell of the season is happening right now and waves are expected to get to over 40 feet! I’ve got Big Maui Surf on My Mind!
A few weeks ago I made my way to Ho’okipa Point at sunrise to shoot this series of photographs in this post. I assigned myself a mini-project so I sat down today, edited the images, developed them, and here they are!
