Photographer's Note

A surfer rides the waves on the North Shore of O'ahu Island, Hawai'i.

The town in which this picture was taken is called Hale'iwa, but it's not the only surfing spot along North Shore, which boasts several of the world-renowned surfing destinations such as a Sunset Beach and the Banzai Pipeline.

Here, surfing lore is made. Surfing competitions are held here every winter, when the swell is highest. (Unfortunately on this day I visited the water was fairly calm.)

The Fox Network TV show North Shore was filmed in the area, as were the last few seasons of Baywatch. ABC's Lost is also filmed on Oʻahu. Much of it is filmed on the North Shore although other areas on Oʻahu are also used. The North Shore was also the setting for the movies North Shore, and Blue Crush, as well as being fictionalized for the animated film Surf's Up.
