Jaws December 8, 2009

When the surf is up enough, and Jaws is ‘going off’ it becomes a rare attraction drawing not only world class surfers, but a huge crowd of observes, including photographers, often with very large telephoto lenses.  Helicopters hover overhead capturing images as do boaters who stay away from the waves, but get a vantage point which those on the bluff overlooking the cove do not get. Tow in surfing at Jaws (ie, Peahi) on Maui only occurs a few times each year during the winter months and is a spectacular sight.
