Catch the Wave!

I could not go to Hawaii without bringing back home some Maui Surf Pictures.

Maui Hawaii is surfers paradise. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Plenty of Surf Photos Opportunities

The world-famous Jaws was pretty quiet during my stay. I didn't have the chance to see those giant 80-foot waves in action.

But the good thing is Maui offers a lot of great surf spots. And many of them are very accessible. It's easy for you to catch some good surf photos without having to wait for Jaws to get alive.

One of the best surf spot on Maui is Honolua Bay, on West Maui Coastline. My favorite surf spot is Hookipa Beach Park on Maui North Shore.

The place is well-known by local surfers and curious people who happen to pass by. A large lookout with many parking lots is situated right on the Hana Highway, a few minutes past Paia. You can't miss it.

The waves are consistent and the surf conditions are usually good, especially in the morning before the wind is up.

If you want to get great Maui surf pictures, don't stay in the parking lot. Jump over the wood fence and follow the path down to the ocean. You will end up just a few feet away from the water, directly at sea level. You will find yourself in a much better position to catch some surf action. Be careful though. The path is slippery and a bit steep.

My Favorite Maui Surf Pictures

I had to take a looooooot of shots in order to get some decent ones without motion blur.

My gear is not bad, but my 70-200mm is a bit short for distant action shots, especially when light is fading fast at sunset. Bring long lens if you can (300-400mm).

Here are some of my favorite Maui Surf Photos.


Go ahead and share YOUR favorite Maui Surf Pictures or Slideshows/Videos. And tell us when and where you caught those moments.

Surfing in La Perouse Bay

It was a great sunny day (no surprise in Hawaii!). Weather was just perfect with a cool wind blowing.

We parked our car at La Perouse Bay and decided to explore some ancient lava trails in South Maui. We were almost alone.

Coming back from a pretty long hike on the lava rocks, we noticed a two surfers in the distance.

Nice waves were breaking close to the coast. We stopped for a while watching the surfers battle with the waves. The show was awesome and I could catch some action on photos. Here's one sample.

Hookipa Surfing at Sunset

We were heading back to our rental on the Hana Highway. We made a quick stop at the Hookipa lookout. It was becoming a habit... :)

The sun was setting. A bunch of surfers were still there, enjoying the last waves of the day. I couldn't ask for more. I took some moody surf shots, helped by a very dramatic back light. Talk about being there at the right moment.

I Love when that happens.

Surfing Can Make You Fly!

What can I say?

Surf can be hard on your body. I took this photo in Hookipa.

In case you ask... the guy is fine. A minute later he was catching another wave. Need much more to stop a surfer...

Never Too Young to Surf

We were relaxing on Spreckelsville Beach, North Maui. The sun was already low in the sky. Another incredible day had passed in paradise.

A mother was swimming in shallow waters carefully watching her young boy trying hard to keep his balance on a huge surfboard.

No wonder these kids become surf champions.

I love this image.
