Don’t Stand Here

This time of year you don’t want to try and get a picture like this at the Blow hole on Oahu.  By May the large waves come from the south side. Winter storms in the Southern Hemisphere generate swells that create breaking waves on south facing shores. To stand here during the summer is to court personal disaster.  As this was in February, the surf action was on the North Shore.  If you’ve seen video of the Banzai Pipeline, that’s during the winter while the south and east shores are flat.

Driving around the eastern end of Oahu gives you a lot of great spots to view the coast of Oahu and across the Molokai Channel to Molokai and West Maui.  This time of the year the lookouts are filled with people hoping to see whales cavorting in the local waters.  You might see a small geyser of water spraying into the air as a whale exhales through its’ blowhole.    When the surf is kicking up you can see a geological blowhole in action at the Blowhole lookout. I took this photo recently from nearby Sandy Beach.
