#223 — Wipe Out


Wipe Out, 2009

High winds, high waves, high adventure — Waikiki had them all on this day! The sea spray almost drowns a small sailboat as a surfer takes a dive. This photo was taken from the seawall in Queen Kapi’olani Beach Park.

    Double click on this photo, and when it opens in a new window, click on “all sizes” to get a bigger photo and a good look at the capsizing surfer.

    Great catch! I imagine that you see a lot of this on your beaches.

    Nicole — now you see him, now you don’t!

    Lew — not as much as I’d like. The best beach times are usually taken up by work!

    Ooooops! I see SOME of that in Ocean city too – when a hurricane’s coming! (that’s when we get the BIG waves) But what I never see is that beautiful BLUE water! We are pretty sure Sea Green is the color of oceans out here….

    Melli — the Hawaiian water is the gorgeous turquoise color of the TV ads, honestly. It is amazing.
