These waves created by a Caribbean Sea storm are being enjoyed by people making the most of the waves in Cuba. With the water usually a calm swell, storms will whip the sky and sea up into frenzy. The green of the ocean and the grey of the lowering clouds is a good indication that a storm is brewing – a common sight in these waters.
