Pipeline is the proving ground for the world's best surfers. On any given winter day—the best time for big waves—you can watch them catch the rides of their lives from a mere 100 feet away. Shooting from the beach, I snapped this photo of a local surfer bottom turning during a sunset session last February. 

TOOLS: Canon EOS 1D Mark IV, Ef300mm +2.0x, 1/1600 second, f/8, ISO 200
