Here is my Re-Edit of December 7 2011.

I was so fixated on “surfers” when I first got to the North Shore of Oahu. Every Professional surfer around the planet comes to a 7 mile strip of beach to surf for 2 months. These are people I have looked up to my whole life, I was letting my excitement dictate which pictures I posted on my site. I’m a fan but I need to let the photography speak for its self.

Here is the original post from 12/7/11 ( (that barrel by Gavin Gillette is still awesome!!!)

These pictures show the raw power of “Rocky Point” surf break and the chargers that own that spot.

Pipeline is less then a 1/2 mile down the beach but somedays it’s so much heavier here

Rocky Point sometimes has a double break (Lefts and Right) and Un-fortunately some times they crash into each other. Today both were going off. Which lead me to grow eyes in the back of my head.

Backdoor Pipeline? NOPE! This is Rocky Point going off

Here is an underwater barrel shot of Gavin Gillette wave from the original post

I’d like to say they were all clean that day but most of the time I’m swimming thru a football sized field of white water haha

    • Thank you Bonnie, I forget that the ocean is the most beautiful thing about surf photography not the surfers.

    Great pics, thanks for the trip down memory lane; I was raised on Oahu in the ’60’s.

    • I would have loved to be here in the 60’s. The golden era of surfing is what hooked my dad and it was passed down 🙂

  3. The underwater image is totally incredible. I grew up at Windansea and going to Hawaii a bunch and it’s amazing to see what is happening UNDER the surface.
    Thanks for the capture.

    • I haven’t had a chance to make it to the big island yet but I got some friends there what part of the island is she on. Everybody should at least try to surf once
