The waves are starting to come alive in Hawaii. With massive swells and a lot of sand that has been resting in the summer months, it is a great time to get images like this. I had to work on this day but decided to find a way to get out of it somehow. This spontaneous decision paid off. The ocean dumps its power onto this shallow sand shelf causing pristine moments but yet dangerous. I got bulldozed by this wave and can still feel it. This picture made it on the Hawaii News forecast.
