amazing photos. Props to the fellas that charged it.
BTW: if you give respect in Hawaii they usually give it right back. I am haole (of course) and travel there most winters and have never had a problem. I don't surf pipe or the other really crowded and crazy spots but never had an issue. Last year I sat patiently for so long at a popular break that a local had me follow him to the peak and his boyz gave me the best wave I had last year.
