The massive wave at Peahi has been filmed from nearly every angle: land, sky, boat, ski but theres never been any footage from below Jaws. Conversations with professional photographers and videographers always turned out the same conclusion: the wave was too thick for a camera to capture a decent image from beneath. As a competitive swimmer-turned-big wave bodysurfer, I took it upon myself to swim out for a look.
This edit is comprised of my favourite clips from an exploratory mission I took out to Jaws in January 2015. The shots that I got above the water don't do justice to the weight of this wave, but from below I managed to capture some beautiful shots from a previously unseen angle.
