Honolua Bay's Finest
This photo was taken on Christmas Day 2012 and a medium resolution version was uploaded to Surfline.com on December 4, 2014. Within a few days it became the most viewed photo on the entire website, with over 55K views in only a few days time. You're right, it's not very likely that when the conditions are this absolutely perfect at Honolua, that no one would be on this wave. There is someone on the wave, but you can't see him because he's throated in the barrel. When this photo is blown up you can see the tip of his board about to emerge. For all intensive mind surfing purposes, it's your wave - charge it!
