A series of photos capturing two humpback whales in the North Shore surf is making waves online.

The photos were taken by J.T. Gray of North Shore Surf Photos Saturday during a rare late season swell at Pipeline.

At one point, the whales appear to be within feet of the surfers.

“The whales were hanging out about 75-100 yards off the beach at Ehukai, then they swam outside the lineup at Pipeline and caught the second wave of the set,” Gray said. “It was amazing to witness.”

Gray’s photo of that set has already gotten more than 6,000 likes and a similar number of shares on Facebook.
