One Shot: Andrew Rams.
Aloha, the names is Andrew Rams. I reside on a small island in the middle of the South Pacific called Hawaii.
More Specifically Oahu Hawaii. Home of the Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Bay , Keiki Shore break and where bodyboarding started , Sandy Beach.
This shot I took while exiting the water after a fun shore break session with the legendary Brian Wise . He was joking with me about how perfect the inside little shore grinding waves are and gave me the idea to get him pulling into one of these not so mini mini type waves.
We tried everything. Laying down on the sand and getting smashed. Jumping over them and getting my legs cut out from under me like a football tackle and getting smashed.
Basically getting smashed and rolled over and over again. It was super fun but I payed for it with scratches on my lens port and road rash all over my legs and back.
Keiki Shorey at this size has more power in it than most places on island. Its no joke. You can seriously get hurt if your not careful.
However, after seeing this shot and several others like this I wouldn’t change a thing.
Sometimes the most innocent fun kine pictures end up making the best memories.
Thanks for reading, I hope to see you guys out here in the future!!
Aloha and Mahalo!
