A wave breaks over a dry reef shelf.

The surf spot on the outside of this wave was big and gnarly. I decided to swim back in and saw mini waves breaking over a sharp reef. The lighting was perfect and conditions were prime. Another thing that was prime was getting my shorts ripped up after this shot. Lemon squeeze to the wounds were a must after this session.
