Out in the water, there's nothing like a good wave. But the inside of a sick pipe is almost impossible to explain to someone who hasn't experienced it.
Almost. That is, unless you're Clark Little. If you're Clark, you dive into these 30-40 foot waves with your incredibly expensive and bulky camera equipment, get battered by the waves and emerge with some of the most spectacular photos from inside a wave that you'll ever see. Check out this short video, Sandsliding, shot by Clark to get a taste of his craft.

Surfing since the 80s, Clark made a name for himself on the Waimea Shorebreak on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. He discovered shore-break photography in 2007 when his wife asked him for a ocean photograph to decorate their bedroom. After heading out and coming back with a few photos, Clark was hooked.
In the less than 5 years since, Clark has skyrocketed to the forefront of shore-break wave photography. And for good reason. He's been featured in National Geographic, the New York Times, LIFE, Geo, Sierra, Outdoor Japan and now Nerve Rush. Clark may be the very best in the world at what he does and the following photos will show you just exactly why.

Clark uses specialized camera housings to protect the camera and deal with the surf break, but if you're looking to get your own wave photos, check out the waterproof Go Pro HD Surf Hero and see what you can capture. We'd love to see what you go out and capture.
