It’s been almost a year since my last dip in the ocean. I miss it (and Kauai) so much. Being 10-20 feet underwater and staring back up at the surface is an incredible sensation. The water compressing against your skin, the rhythm of the waves as you get picked up and carried away, the smell and stinging taste of fresh saltwater. It’s a beautiful environment where I feel utterly at peace and at home, but also humbled by its awesome power. This video captures those feelings perfectly.
