ALOHA! THE BIG ISLAND, HAWAII
Let me just start off by saying that sunsets in Hawaii are no joke. I hopped off the plane, checked into my resort and headed right for the beach to catch the sunset... This was just one of the many mesmerizing evenings I had watching the sun go down over the ocean.
The next day I woke up and hopped right into the water starting with cliff jumping at South Point (the most southern point of the USA).
Chasing waterfalls is a blast especially when you're in Hawaii. This one surrounded by different shades of lush green is Akaka Falls in Honomu Hawaii.
The entire trip was filled with visiting sea turtles at almost every beach we went to (and I loved every minute of it). What an awesome experience it was to to see these guys in their natural habitat and get a closer look while still respecting their space.
We hopped in the car (with our improvised surf rack made from pool noodles) and spent the day driving around the entire island looking to find some good surf.
Our last night in Hawaii, we took our boards down to the beach with us hoping there would be some decent waves for one last surf but unfortunately we were out of luck. Lucky for us, Hawaii's sunset game is strong so we didn't miss out at all.
