Hawai’i Photoblog #5: the cliff jumpers

Kona day 3 (191 of 272)

During my recent Hawai’i trip I came across a group of young native Hawaiians jumping extraordinary distances off cliffs into the ocean.  The image below features a boy probably around 14 years of age.  The locations where they were jumping were by South Point, Kona, the southernmost tip of the island and in fact the entire United States.  The upper image was at South Point, with a big hole leading to a cave that brought in ocean waters.  The scary bit about that cave was the tide would suck out a huge percentage of the water- the cliff jumper couldn’t be too sure of how much water they were actually jumping into.

These guys, prior to jumping, would audibly say things like “I’m scared!” and then just do it.

If you enjoy any of this work I encourage you to like it and share it!  For more photoworks goodness peruse my Etsy shop, follow on tumblr and twitter and instagram, and rummage around on my full site.
