Surfers

Surfers

SurferIn response to this week’s Sunday Stills challenge on the theme of ‘Water’ (more responses here) I thought I’d post something very Hawaiian. Most widely-seen surfing images feature a surfer cruising through a barrel of blue water or sliding down the face of a terrifyingly steep wave. But many people enjoy getting out on the water and having fun on whatever waves are available.

The Big Island isn’t known for its surfing spots in the same way as Maui and Oahu, but there are still plenty of surfing enthusiasts. Good, rideable surf often leads to an increase in people calling in sick to work.

These photos were taken at Honolii Beach Park north of Hilo, a popular surfing spot on the east side of the island and a good spot for kids to get to grips with the sport.

    • Yes, it is. I’m amazed at some of the surfing shots photographers get. These are very mundane by comparison, but I like how the kids are out there on their boards, getting a feel for the waves.

  1. Perfect for water, Graham! The color of the water is such a mix of blue gray and green! Hilo area seems like a great place for surfing. While we were there, there was a school holiday on our last Friday and there were a lot of youngsters out there shredding those waves!
