this perfect little horseshoe shaped bay had a perfect left and perfect right breaking at the tip of either point.
the prevailing breeze was straight offshore creating beautifully shaped waves as they peeled over the shallow reef.
Reef Pass Left
two locals made the long paddle out the left side of the reef pass.
as far as I could tell the waves were perfect there pretty much every day.
the inside part of the reef showing itself off.
perfection personified by this dream-like set up.
warm water, flawless shape, off-shore winds, not a soul around.
two guys jet-ski'd into this secluded pass where machine-like rights drained over a shallow coral reef.

Evening Glass Off
even in the middle of the ocean hundreds of miles from the nearest land, the ocean has moments of pure calm and serenity.
golden light filters through the tropical air on a calm and windless afternoon.
the expanse of the ocean is so grand, the only thing to lend perspective is a large albatross on the right side of the frame gliding over the smooth ocean surface to give an idea of how large this wide angle view actually is.
