Giant wave in Waimea Bay. North Shore, Oahu.
- I shot this huge wave in Waimea Bay, on the North Shore of Oahu. The first sweep of sunshine touched this spot of ocean as I took the photo. The Eddie Aikau Big Wave invitational happened this day, and my friend Noah Johnson won it. A very good day.
The story: "After having traveled many times to Waimea Bay on the Island of Oahu for wave photography , only to be shut down by bad light or small waves, I was delighted to show up this day before dawn to huge waves. I set up on the shore, where I could look right down the tube. The first finger of sunlight streaked through the valley behind me, hitting only the wave, leaving all other details in shadow. It reminded me of the importance to not give up on a location, but to return as many times as it takes to get the conditions just right."
