Peahi, Maui's surf spot famously named "Jaws" for massive waves
Peahi on north shore Maui puts on a show, if lucky, a couple days during winters with a north shore swell. Here is a big wipe out as a surfer misses the drop and goes over the falls of a 60+ foot wave. This bright January morning was filled with tons of big wave surfers paddling into 50 plus foot waves as spectactors ‘Oo-ed and Ah-ed’ at the incredible performance.
