We're Gunna Need a Bigger Boat

This has become one of my most published images on the internet. It's a bit of a camera trick with the compaction of the foreground and background resulting from shooting with a long lens. The boat is actually safely in the deepwater channel, only fifty yards from the massive set wave in the distance but do not mistake this situation as fully safe. At Maverick's anything can happen - and often does!
