Do you have Amazon Prime? If you do, you definietly have to check out Shorebreak: The Clark Little Story. It was so inspiring.

First of all, I didn’t even know Clark Little had a amazon prime movie out so I was surprised to see it being suggested. Second of all, I’ve never heard Clark Little talk before. It was so fun to hear his Hawaiian accent. And then I had no idea what he was saying when he was talking to other locals in the film. HAHA so cool!

Last but not least, man those shorebreaks are REDONKULOUS! Yes, I’ve been following his work for years but seeing on video of what he has to go through to capture those images takes it to a whole new level. I remember when I first saw his photography, I was so blown away that I couldn’t stop looking at his work all night. I googled everything I could about Clark Little and was just so impressed from the very beginning. If you remember this youtube video I created, I mentioned how he inspired me. But seeing it from his point of view or even seeing it from above with all the drone footage, man I don’t even know. The whole movie was just so inspiring and beautiful. Even if you don’t like photography that much and you have an appreciate for just nature or anything beautiful, you have to watch it. Watch it, then come back to this blog post and tell me how much you loved it because I know you will!

So this image is not of the north shore where Clark takes his photos. It’s in Kauai. When we visited Oahu a couple of years ago, we were there during a surf competition. We tried to go but the beach was so packed and hardly any parking so we skipped it. But after watching that amazon prime movie, it makes me want to go back. Like now.

Andrew and I was talking about poke the other day and how amazing it was in Hawaii. The fish is so just fresh and tender in Hawaii, its just so hard to compare it to anything we have here on the east coast.

This was image was taken right after we were done hiking the Napali Coast in Kauai. The place where we discovered the amazingness of the cubed fish.

You know you’re a tourist when you drive all the way to the summit of Haleakala National Park in a tshirt and shorts. Man! It is so windy and cold up there, I couldn’t do it. So this was taken on the second time going up when we had more appropriate clothing for the park.

Most excellent reward after the most strenuous hike I’ve ever done in my life. The Hanakapiai Beach hike is seriously no joke. I think it took about 6 hours but worth it because the views along the way were magical. After it was all over we stopped to recover and decided to wait for the sun to set. Any sunset in Hawaii is definietly worth it.
