Clark Little (website), pictured above photographing the reknowned Waimea Shorebreak, started his career surfing the heaviest shorebreak in the world at Waimea. When he picked up photography, he naturally gravitated toward the impact zone and producing stunning images of the barrel from the shorebreak. Clark’s profile on Club of the Waves.

Clark puts himself in the critical point of the waves and gets rewarded with stunning images. His images are unlike any others. Taken from the heart of the barrel as the wave is balanced between motion and sculpture. Here are a few of his stunning images. (Daily Mail UK post on Clark Little) See Clark’s recent Interview on Good Morning America, Youtube Video of the interview at the end of the post.

    Stunning pictures is right!!!

    Fulfills my surfing dreams … something I always wanted to do. I remember body surfing almost daily for about 10 years, and in some water or other, floating about now and then, for a good sixty years, but I never remember scenes like this.

    Whew! Beautiful!

    Hi there,

    I just recieved an email that has been doing the rounds and they are of wave images taken by Clark Little.

    I was just wondering if the images were actually for sale or not? If so the one that was titled “Molten Liquid Gold” is the one I am interested in.
