Jaws second day of the Big Surf

I have had so many questions about Jaws, so now I am attempting  to address all of the questions.

Yes I shot these pictures of the surf spot named Jaws on the North Shore of Maui. Jaws is a big wave surf spot. It does not even break until the surf exceeds 20 feet or more. It is for tow ins, which means that the wave is so big that you cannot even paddle into it, you have to be towed into wave with a jet ski. The first day I sat on top of Alex Merks van which had a ideal location on the edge of the cliff, because he spent the night. Second day I hiked down the cliff and shot from a little ledge on the cliff. I shoot all of the photos on both days in the morning just after sunrise. I shot this with my Canon 5d mark2 with a 35to350 zoom. I cropped these photos to zoom in on the action. A 600 to 800mm would be the better choice.

Yes you can post these images on facebook or blogs, I am just requesting that you give me photo credit to read: www.randyhufford.ivamaui.com

Yes you can see more images of Jaws on my blog web site.

I have been asked how big are you going to print it? 60×88

No I do not know the name of the surfer and yes the surfer rode the entire wave and survived.

Yes art is still selling!!

The buoys on Monday where 23 feet 17 seconds apart the buoys on Tuesday where 19 feet 17 seconds apart. National Weather service said that waves would be 20 to 30 feet with occasional 50 footers.

This photo is from Tuesday, which was a little smaller than Monday.

Yes it was crowded with the roads jam packed with people and cars. The road is a old pineapple field and really narrow hard for  cars to pass each other.

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!

Aloha Randy
