My other favorite subject to shoot. There are a lot of similarities in capturing waves and chasing supercells. Both require complete commitment, a deep respect for Mother Nature and her power. Both bring highs and lows that take a toll on your spirit. As scary as situations sometimes get on the plains, nothing scares me shitless like swimming on big days in Hawaii. The storms bring me to a place of complete awe and surrender, the ocean forces me to go to a place much deeper. There’s no car to hide in, you don’t get the opportunity to panic and loose your focus. Nothing in this life has pushed me further in testing my own limits. I am forever grateful for the lessons the ocean has shown me.
