Surfing at the Golf Course

Surfing at the Golf CourseJust past Honolua Bay on the west side of Maui, there’s a large old plantation that runs down to the cliffs that tower over the Pacific facing Moloka’i (in the distance). This plantation was converted into a golf course in the 20th century but after WWII it dried up. Now the cliffs at the south end act as steps for local surfers to find a popular wave.

I don’t know much about surfing, so I won’t pretend to, but I saw this shot in my mind’s eye, hooked up the gear from the beach on Honolua Bay and started snapping.
