Pe'ahi (jaws), on Maui's north coast, is rockin' this week, providing epic tow-in big wave surfing. Captured this one today...

    Smokin' shot, JB! I got a few shots the other day when that same swell hit Mavericks which is our Jaws. I'm envious though. We don't get that blue water out here.

    An "accurate" reproduction of a scene and a good photograph are often two different things.

    These were all shot from about 400yds away, on a cliff-top roughly 150' above the sea.

    Canon 7D
    Canon EF 75-300 II (yep...an oldie but goodie)
    Mono-pod fully collapsed for a seated position.
