Texas Sunrise

I had to drive 6+ hours to be able to stay on Galveston for an extra day but when there are waves you do what you have to do, especially since I won’t see the ocean for 30+ days. I got up super early and drove the coast till I saw surfers at 37th Street. Couple of long boarders and one fun boarder but it was more then enough for me to get suited up. (I would swim out if it was an old guy in a row boat as long as he was riding waves).

Luckily for me there was a lot of style in the water and some amazing color the brown water was a great contrast for the morning light.

Here’s Mike!!! a Texas A&M student and a super nice kid, he was riding this wide twin fin and it was the perfect board for early morning chop, this ended up being my favorite sequence from Texas. I feel it represents the majority of TX surfers, people who enjoy just being out there dong what they love. Riding waves is fun and doesn’t have to be more then that

This angle was the only one working early in the morning, it was too grey shooting away from the sun.

Found a frothy barrel on the inside sand bar… really brown

David Voigt the local pro/surf shop employee that I met the day before showed up to grab a few more shots, ¬†surf photographers don’t show up everyday in Galveston.

The sun finally came up and so did the waves. Still a little grey but when you got talent in the water you make it work.

The best photos come when the surfer actually works with me to get the shots. He knew I was shooting fisheye and that means the closer the better.

  4. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. However
    just imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.

    Great blog!
