Waking up the reef

Energy pulses FROM ACROSS THE SEA

A colorful collection, 'Waking Up The Reef' is a culmination of dozens upon dozens of hours swimming against currents, dodging surfers, ducking under waves, and holding onto the reef for dear life. From the dangerous and fabled Queen, Pipeline, to more mellow breaks named and unnamed, this series shows the uninhibited energy of the reef waking up in the early winter of the North Pacific.

the water will always surprise you. You see things you may never see again, no matter how often you visit the same place.
