Whales give show at Oahu's Pipeline

by Anonymous on Apr. 18th, 2014

Last week some impressive photos of whales riding the surf in Hawaii made their rounds on the internet. Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) can often be seen in Hawaii between December and May as they migrate north but rarely as close as they were at Pipeline, a legendary surfing location on Oahu's North Shore. Now a spectacular video of the unusual event has surfaced. Using a camera drone, videographer Eric Sterman captured some pretty amazing footage of the whales (including a calf), swimming and breaching just off shore of the popular surfing site.
