Wipeout

A riderless surfboard soars above a massive wave on Peahi, a surf break on Maui’s north shore. This image was captured during the Pe’ahi Challenge, a big-wave surfing event. Peahi, also known as Jaws, “is a spectacle in the truest sense of the word, with waves up to 80 [feet tall] on the biggest days,” photographer Lyle Krannichfeld says. “This particular frame stood out to me because of the splash of color from the board and the questions it raises for the viewer.”
