East Swell 2003 -- 11/22/03
On November 21, 2003, the islands were pounded by an unusually large northeast swell. Atmospheric conditions created a "perfect storm" that was a "reverse-cyclone" pointing its fetch back to Hawaii from the northeastern Pacific.
I got a chance to shoot the eastside of Oahu on Saturday (Nov 22),
after the swell had subsided somewhat. It was still quite spectacular,
as you can see. I also managed to get a few minutes of water
