Long wave swell off Kalalau Beach, taken from the Kalalau trail along the Na Pali (lit. Big cliffs) coast, northern Kauai. While the coast is spectacular, the seas and beaches along this part of Kauai are treacherous, characterised by strong currents, unseen rips and dangerous shorebreaks, unsafe for swimming.
