Amazing picture by @paulnicklen • @cristinamittermeier dives under a large crashing wave in #Makaha , Oahu, Hawaii. The Hawaiians of Makaha took us under their wing and taught us about their deep connection to the sea. We were debutants and we found ourselves in situations that we would never have thought possible prior to their guidance. Brian Keaulana was teaching us about three and four wave hold downs just prior to this big surf day. We were taught to stay near the bottom, avoiding the foamy white water until we could see solid water before swimming to the surface. #MahaloNuiLoa my friends from #Makaha . #gratitude#hawaii#freediving#surf#surfing#gratitude#aloha
