The Haleiwa Wahine strums her ukulele under the palms as sailboats sit in the harbor and surfers drop in in the distance. The retro orange and aqua color palette completes this nostalgic capture of the "Gateway to the North Shore."
Nick's Commentary: "The quiet little surf town of Haleiwa has a unique charm whether you are on the hunt for surf, sushi or Hawaii made art. The word 'Hale‘iwa' literally translates to "House of the frigate bird, or ‘Iwa. I get a special feeling when you emerge from the Cook Pines on the way to the North Shore and see the historic Haleiwa Town sign. I thought it was important to capture several of the iconic landmarks like the Rainbow Bridge over Anahulu Stream & the buoy off in the distance entering the harbor. Did you know surfers use the buoy to anticipate large clean up sets? You better start paddling faster if you hear 'outside!'."
