The spot where this piece, Napili Wave, was taken is known for it’s calm currents and lush reefs, making it a perfect place to snorkel and see some of Maui’s most tropical sea. What it isn’t known for, is a good place to surf...that’s what made this day so unique. After a great day of swimming with the turtle’s along Napili Bay I was able to catch this fleeting moment where the winds picked up and created this powerful wedge that surged over the reef. I was able to capture just how strong and fast the isolated wave was. This piece is a captivating illustration of Nature’s unpredictable power.
