An extraordinary 2013 compilation video shot from a DJI phantom quadcopter at Banzai Pipeline on the north shore of  Oahu, Hawaii by aerial photographer Eric Sterman.

Huge, deadly waves coursing over a razor sharp reef – a playground for gnarl-bothering pipe-freaks.

Quite hot.

Molten rock flowing from the Pu’u O’o vent of Kilauea – the most active of Hawaii’s five volcanoes – encounters an empty ravioli can, filmed by Bryan Lowry, who explains all in detail here.



A timelapse filmed by Sean Goebel filmed over three nights at the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii – the Northern Hemisphere’s premier astronomy location due its low light pollution and14,000ft (4267m) elevation.

The beams are laser guide stars, shot into the atmosphere by the observatories to correct for atmospheric light distortion and create artificial ‘stars’ that act as reference points.

Music: All is Violent, All is Bright by God is an Astronaut.



Hiking (crawling, tip-toeing – call it what you will) along the ridiculously narrow Pali Puka ridge in Oahu: a trail with huge drop-offs on either side.

The clip – shot with a tiny a GoPro Hero camera – would have been just as impressive without the epic music score but, according to hiker dgcpinoy, the raw audio is simply ‘awful low quality shrieking wind’.

That, and the squeaky-balloon sound of butt cheeks clenching.
