Tourist by BreatheNaked Tourist by BreatheNaked
Waimea Bay, Oahu

The swell is picking up this season and visitors to North Shore, Oahu, have no idea how strong and heavy the waves can get especially at Waimea Bay. This female from out of country spent quite some time trying to get into the ocean with fins on. She sat up on the shore break dumbfounded and screamed just before the wave hit her.

Massive water about to smash scrawny animal. Kinda grotesque looking, especially with the bony body. Not sure if that's what you were aiming for, but it looks neat to me!

Ah, Waimea Bay, I remember it well. A mere 6 inches of water hit me like a truck and sent me head over heels to the ground. This is just a fabulous shot.

Heh, you really underestimate the power of a wave until you try to ride one. I had a really hard time getting chest-deep in Newquay the first time I went surfing, and when i got slammed down into the sea floor I realised that nature isn't something to be fucked with.  The ocean has a way with humbling you. Wonderful photograph!
