The North Shore April swell

One of the best winter storms came in April. The North Shore of O’ahu, Hawai’i was pleasantly surprised when a late season gift wrapped into the sandy shores of Sunset Beach on April 15th and 16th. Like a fresh pot of coffee, there’s nothing like the buzz on the North Shore when the waves come alive. And it was pumping double to triple overhead waves for days on end. Due to the consistency and swell direction, I decided to shoot Sunset from a variety of angles with a 600-800 lens, my eye hooked on the thundering bombs on the horizon and the lucky surfers in rhythm to ride them.
