This weekend the north shore of Maui has seen a large swell visiting its shores. The photo below does no justice to the size of the size of the waves that were arriving here. Official figures say that at their largest they were between 18ft and 24ft. Zoom in to the far distance to see some monsters just breaking.

The roar of the water, the continual arrival of more waves, all made for quite the spectacle of the force and power of the ocean.

Incredible and beautiful.
