Porter Hogan at Ho'Okipa.
I love looking back at photos.. This image would never be used for anything, the wave is too small and I'm too far away from porter. But, its beautiful! Its what surfing looks like while your out there. Not everyone in the water has a front row seat of a surfer trying to get as close as possible and smash a wave in their face. So we see this, the landscape, the colors, the water, the foam, the wave and the surfer. It only last a second and it usually stokes us out and makes us want to paddle to the line up even faster so that we get our chance to ride the next set of waves. Then while porter is paddling back out he gets to watch someone surf a wave and sees just how amazing, awe inspiring it all is! Cycle that feeling, share the stoke, ride some waves and spread Aloha. Enjoy the Beauty that is Creation! We were fearfully and wonderfully made, as is this world. Thank you Jesus!
This image makes me feel proud to be a photographer and stokes me out to share it with you.
