Sunset Beach is one the more famous surf breaks in the world, and many
professional contests are held there each year. Its waves are some of the most
powerful on earth, generated by far distant North Pacific Ocean storms during
the winter months (Sept-March). They are an incredible example of the ocean's
mightiness. Native Hawaiians, surfers, and a lot of oriental people consider
these magnificent waves to be a supreme example of power and manifested with
the spirit of mother nature. To actually see these waves breaking along the
shoreline is an awesome, humbling, and unforgettable experience.It would make a
great gift for someone who likes this area or surfing images of Hawaii. They
are popular reasonably priced decorations for restaurants, offices, homes, or
stores where people can see them.
We're proud to mention that many of our photos were used as background artwork
in the new CBS television network series "Hawaii 5-0". Our original photos are
very popular and affordable to local people and tourists visiting Hawaii, as
well as people who have never visited Hawaii and production costs are lower
than most folks so we want to offer affordable quality art for people who might
not otherwise be able to afford it. We feel we are preserving and promoting the
history and culture of Hawaii to Kama'aina, visitors, and other folks at a
reasonable price to display or share with others. With proper care it the
manufacturer says it should last many years without fading if you carefully
follow display instructions included on the label on the back of the print.
