Haha! Ke Iki's is the only place so far where I have felt two distinct, separate channels of sand/seawater shooting up my nose. Kind of a helpless feeling because right away you realize "whoa I don't want this happening" but you can't do anything about it. You're getting some sand some up your nose.

Well thanks Badger! I'll keep uploading them. Definitely got the load of these. I'll go check a couple couple folders and get the next batch going.

Trouble is they probably got pushed too far back, people are too lazy to browse deep through the recently uploaded photos bit. Personally I think all your work is home page worthy! I would say you have slowly become my favorite photographer on the site....easily! I love shorey's and you capture them perfectly, it's almost like i'm there!

Yeah, these four uploads are some of my favorite shore break photos. It's a shame they missed the home page for some reason. Thanks Badger, I can always count on you to check in on me!
