    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    curling ocean waveThis week in Hawaii, we are expecting monster surf the likes of which we haven’t seen for over a decade. Everyone’s throwing around the number 50. As in fifty-foot high waves. And people, no doubt, will be riding them. But not competitors in "The Eddie.”

    breaching whale off lahaina, mauiIn the photo, a humpback whale is rocketing its estimated 40-ton body out of the water. The fast shutter speed of the camera catches what must be thousands of water droplets spiraling around the whale’s enormous body—off its sun-glinting, scallop-edged pectoral fins and haloing its head.
