As a kid I spent endless hours poring over surf magazines filled with images of Hawaii’s North Shore. Photographs of the world’s best surfers riding the world’s best waves were burned into my mind. I had the chance to visit nearly a decade ago after finishing college but it was the Summer and the waves were nowhere to be found. My recent trip in December was different. While most everyone with North Shore experience was lamenting over the small swell I found myself in the line-up, adrenaline rushing, catching some of the best waves of my life. While there is no photographic evidence of said waves here is a clip from post-surf skate sessions at the North Shore park and some moments captured on film while safely on land…including my college roommate’s amazing wedding ceremony in Kailua. Aloha Alex & Gena!
