Tahitian Surfer Escapes a Beating

Full title: A local Tahitian escapes a beating on the reef while his friend in the background is not too lucky.

My first trip to Tahiti was one to remember. The water was so clear this day and the locals were nice enough to have me shoot photos of them. This surf spot has razor sharp reef and is extremely shallow. Perfect for underwater photography!
