Pierre Louis Costes - Hawaii Pipeline 2012

           Pierre is the current World champion , to me nobody does back flip good as he does , I could write a book about his skills as a bodyboarder, but I think these pictures speak for themselves. Aloha .

I get around

Omaezaki Beach

            Seemed that winter had already finished , but is still very cold and the wind still blowing strong , good to the wind surfers around here despite the waves are small even to them . Even with the cold and the wind, the day was very pleasant this Monday around Omaezaki like you can see in these photos  , Aloha .

 Wind Surfing is still pumping .

Nice  move .

Beautiful Sunset like always .

Water Photographer Life

Hawaii North Shore 2012

          Well , I started to shoot in the water 1 year and a half ago . During this short time I already broke a rib and had my leg pierced by a surfboard 3 weeks ago in Hawaii . Shoot in the water is dangerous , even when is small it's dangerous , I learned this in a very hard way ( currently I can not move two fingers of my right foot and I am walking  on crutches ) . Of course I do not recommend anyone to do what I do , though I practice bodyboard  for over 20 years and  swim a lot , I shouldn't go to shoot in the water at Pipeline with a fisheye without much experience in the water photography . Anyway I do it , it's stronger than my mind , the ocean calls me and I go ..., never mind , it's been hard to write something right now , so just have a look in this photos and you can have some idea what I am talking about . Thank's for read until here . Aloha .

My vision when I'm dipping under the wave .


Seems far, but I'm less than 2 meters away from the surfer.

Concerned to avoid the lip and also wanting to get the photo .

Rocky Point

Rocky Point Hawaii 2012

             Definitely one of the best spot to surf in the North Shore , and for sure the most constant point . When the other places get shit waves you can find 3 to 5 feet waves overthere . The wave is fast and the bottom is shallow , perfect for short board and bodyboarding , but maybe not fun for long boards . Here are some photos that you can have some idea how it looks like , ALOHA .

Heading to Sunset beach from Rocky .

Perfect to short board .

Even when it is crowded  you can find some free waves .

Mr. kanoa Mcgee

Kanoa Mckgee - Pipeline 2012

              If you've been in the north shore already , for sure you know about this guy , the living legend Mr. kanoa Mcgee , the only surfer that surfs Pipeline with Surf Board , SUP , Body Board Prone and Drop Knee . I do prefer shoot him than surf next to him ( He didn't gave me anychance to surf in peace this year in a classic day at Haleiwa ) , but he is local , big , looks hungry and you can be sure that nobody complains about it . The first time I met him was last year , during the Pipe Pro , We change some few words and I took some few photos from the land . This year he started to work as a lifeguard in the North Shore , so I met him several times on the beach , in the water , and I could know him better , behind this Big Man has some one very nice , left some waves to me at Pipeline , asked me how the photos were going , some laughs after his funny way to surf some times . Well , Nice to can shoot and surf next to this legend , enjoy the photos , ALOHA .

Kanoa behind the wave .


Very funny, laughing at himself.

Kanoa surfing during his break time , what a Job .
