CHALLENGE WINNER IN THE SURF COMPETITION IN THE BEACH, RIVER, LAKE TREASURES GROUP

Awesome capture of a surfer at Makapuu Beach Park enjoying the huge waves brought on by the arrival of Hurricane Felicia, later downgraded to a tropical storm.

Located below Makapu’u Point, a portion of land marking Hawaii’s easternmost tip. This is a very popular beach for bodysurfing. Rabbit Island and Flat Island sit just offshore and makes this beach a picturesque beauty. High surf, fierce shore break, and strong undertoe often occur during the winter months which can make this beach a hazardous place

    what a wonderful colourful clear crisp image this is. ( I would trim that slight bit of black at the top though….I am allowed to say that…lol…). Fav it.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, it was late when I put this up and missed that. I really appreciate the fave and for adding me to your watchlist.
