WAVES OF HAWAII by Clark Little
Waimea Bay shore-break surfing pioneer, husband, and father of two, Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition for his photography with appearances on Good Morning America, Inside Edition, and many local news stations across the U.S.
It all started in 2007 when Clark 's wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall.
Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out.
"Clark's view" is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be able to experience safely on land while studying one of Clark 's photos.
Now with a camera upgrade and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel.
Since the recent stir of Clark's work, his images have been run on the Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature's Best Photography, Paris Match (France), La Vie (France), Hana Hou (Hawaiian Airlines) magazine, Surfer magazine, Surfer's Journal as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the U.S. and overseas.
These incredible images of waves in the Hawaiian Islands were taken by Clark Little, the number one photographer of surf.
He is dedicated to photographing the waves and has published a selection of his best images. www.clarklittlephotography.com
He captures magical moments inside the tube as surfers say.

This shot captures sand from the ocean's floor being swept up by a monstrous wave and resembles a sandstorm.
Little calls it the Sandmonster.
"There were clouds of sand ten feet high and I'm standing there."
"I'm holding on to my camera and my trigger as long as I can."
"Then I have to jump into the cloud of sand to try to get out of danger's way."
His fans pay as much as $4,000 for his gorgeous photos.
