This is a quality unmounted giclee photo from an original Velvia transparency printed with archival ink in the 35mm 'full frame' format*** on 8.5 x 11 inch Epson pro photo paper of a 35 foot (Hawaiian measurement) Waimea Bay closeout wave January 28, 1998,Haleiwa, north Oahu, Hawaii by longtime Hawaii professional surfing photographer Bill Romerhaus. It was one of the biggest days seen in the past several decades at Waimea Bay. This 35-40 foot (Hawaiian) monster broke almost all the way across the bay. This was called 'Big Wednesday' by the younger crowd but the first one was in the early 1960's and there may have been a few more since. There were more bigger waves on this day. It was shot on transparency film, cropped, and has the photographer's name in the lower corner (may be hard to see here but you can see on print)  and has photography and preservation tips included in the label on the back.
Please note that this was printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper and has a thin black line and light green margin around the photo which is part of the print not a cutout (see photo), so you can see the actual image size is smaller but it is printed on a full sheet of paper.It is also a little grainy as it was shot on 35mm Velvia transparency film and push processed, it is still a dramatic and artistic image. It would make a great holiday or birthday gift for someone who likes this area or historic surfing images of Hawaii. They are popular reasonably priced decorations for restaurants, offices, homes, or stores where people can see them. 
Waimea Bay is one the largest surf breaks in the world. It is also home of the Eddie Aikau Memorial Big Wave Surfing contest only held when the waves are at least 25 foot high. Waimea 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. It has been said that one wave this size if harnessed for energy could provide enough electrical power to light a thousand homes for over an hour. 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.
We're proud to mention that many of our photos were used as background artwork in the new CBS television network series "Magnum P.I." "Hawaii 5-0". and NETLFLIX "Finding Oahana'.  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.
