I will never learn to surf, but thanks to Clark Little's photographs, anyone can feel the thrill of being inside the tube. He manages to capture the wave just at the point of breaking, creating a perfect crystalline moment. Sadly, no geektails on equipment or shutter speed are available at his site. But The Guardian (UK) of all places does have a gallery of images including Clark at work.
After Clark stepped away from the incredible thrill of going big at Waimea, he realized that he longed to be back in his element. Clark has returned ot various North Shore shorebreaks to capture the beauty and power of these monstrous waves from the inside out. What he has achieved through the lens of his camera are images never seen by those who reside on land.
