Sam Monaghan

Samuel Monaghan was born in 1977 on the island of Nassau in the Bahamas, to an artist mother and a surfer father.Sam was raised in over 20 countries across the Pacific Ocean. Besides hiking, camping, and sailing all is life, he always has his camera with him.

More recently, Sam was blessed to be crew member of the Free Spirit as it sailed around the Hawaiian Islands and chanced upon the “lava fall” of Kamokuna. It was a brief moment in time in which a 120 acre delta of lava, which had been built up over 6 months, collapsed into the pacific and took with it a great portion of the cliff. This created a temporary hose of lava which poured molten earth directly into the boiling ocean.
