Pineapple Sunrise - Photography by Tommy Pierucki
Originally from the Chicago area, Tommy Pierucki has been a Hawaii resident since 2013. Ever since first getting on a surfboard at Baby Queens in Waikiki in the early 2000s, he’s been determined to spend the rest of his days giving back to, enjoying, and capturing the beauty of the islands and it’s amazing people. This love drew him to work with AccesSurf, a charitable organization that helps connect those with physical and/or cognitive disabilities to the ocean.
