Kona Water Patrol

My friend Sean was on water patrol at Ironman Kona. This means he paddles around on his board and helps keep the 1,887 swimmers safe during the swim. I gave him my camera during the race and these are some of his awesome shots.

Some of these pictures look so peaceful and serene. Don't be confused - the Ironman swim start is many things, but peaceful generally is not one of them.
