Hello Ocean Lovers,
Finally some epic big surf on the north shore of Kauai!! The reefs in Hanalei may be dying but the surf is not! Today was the first big clean swell. I took these video clips off my kayak and almost got taken out by a big set. Tons of fun. When I take these movies I sit right above a big hole in the reef called flat rock. The waves break at the bowl and point but there is a deep spot between the two where you can sit on a kayak and shoot video. A bit risky but sure makes some good surf pics! These video clips will be in my new educational movies for our schools and will be posted at The Hanalei River Foundation web page and face book page. All the proceds from my movies and pictures go to our non profit coral reef research projects in Hanalei Bay. I also have attached a cool pic from the air I took of the reef at Hanalei. Teaching our keiki about the reef surf and marinelife is important and I hope my surf videos will help our kids learn about the sea.
