Jumping The Rock – Waimea Bay, Oahu

Everyone who knows me knows that my favorite beach in the entire world is Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. I visited the other day and it was everything I remembered. The big draw to Waimea Bay is “the rock.” People from all over the world come to the rock to jump off. Local people, tourists, everyone. Friendships are forged, strangers cheered on, promises made (“On Three!”), promises broken (also on three), fears conquered, splash height records broken. I swam pretty much the entire day, but I took about an hour to take make some photographs.
