Kalani Deep, Pipeline Hawaii by Clark Takashima

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Kalani Deep is an accumulative effort of lifelong studies of one of the world’s most recognizable waves. My intent was to show an intimate view of a wave that has been captured perhaps the most-out of all perfect waves. Pipeline is paramount.
This view is a combination of what one would see in a magazine (photographers are getting closer to the action than ever) and what its like to actually surf the place. I have been among the few that have been able to exit these waves unscathed. Well if you call a torn ligament to orthroscopic surgery unscathed. The reef is depicted as uneven and as unpredictable. The wave is experts only with a heirarchy for surfers as well as photgraphers. The best surfers out get preferential rights to the best waves. Again, color and form was my goal for this piece.

    Mate, this image is perfect for the surfing group I just started. It does exactly what I want art works to do in the surfing group, highlighted by the comment by Lachlan. Please submit it to the group. I can use this image to showcase to every one, that “only a surfer knows the feeling” is not necessarily that case. I think even non-surfers would look at this image and think about what it would feel like to be that bloke in the pit.
