This is early morning Pe'ahi, when the sun rises and the fortunate few on the water get to experience mother nature in all of her beautiful fury. Waves of 80 feet or more rise and fall and crash and boom, while the bravest of surfers push their luck again and again. The waves destroy jet skis and surfboards and can certainly claim lives with violent focus. At the same time it is astonishingly beautiful, the sights and sounds and smell is not soon forgotten.
