Surf’s Up

Hawaii has no shortage of beaches.  There are beaches for every activity imaginable… beaches for swimming, beaches for snorkeling, beaches for sunning, beaches for picnicking, beaches for turtle watching, and beaches for surfing and windsurfing.  Ho’okipa Beach, in Maui, Hawaii, is the place to go to watch surfers and windsurfers brave the waves.  It is known as “the windsurfing capital of the world.”  Spending some time here watching the adventurous surfers catch the waves is quite entertaining, and simply, quintessentially, Hawaii!

If you haven’t made the time to get yourself to Hawaii, you really should!  Time spent there is restful for the soul and renewing to the spirit.  Hawaii operates at a completely different pace and attitude than the rest of the country.  This shot was made on a December evening following a tough day of whale watching, snorkeling with turtles, beach lounging, volcano exploring, and mahi mahi eating while listening to island music.  I know every state boasts of its uniqueness, but Hawaii really is an exceptional place.
