I know I have posted a lot of surf haps lately but these pics are too great not to add. They were taken from a south swell that hit the South Pacific a couple of weeks ago. The summer storms form close by to Tahiti and it takes the full impact of the swell. The swell hits a shelf and just stands up where the ocean was just flat a minute ago. This wave is unreal. It looks so fake and heavy and powerful and lovely and beautiful and angry.

I hope to see it firsthand sometime in my life.
