Reef Slow/PRO and afternoon session
Went over to the Reef Pro today to watch the second day of competition. There were a few set rolling in but with only 20 minute heat times it was a battle of strategy. Most of the guys that won today got a solid wave off the buzzer followed it up with a small score and then played defense for the last 10 minutes. No shame in the game but it doesn’t lead to the best surfing for the spectators. John John was nailing airs and representing HI to the fullest.
I don’t care to say hello to a single surfer but Paul Fisher is a different story. Thanks for taking two seconds off your phone , Good on ya FOLLOW THE FISH (BEST WEBSITE EVER)
I got home around 3 to stay out for a setting sun session. Trying to get those back lit barrels. Danny Fuller and Roy Powers were holding it down today at Rocky’s and it was a great sunset. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s adventure.
This is what happens if you drop in on the wrong guy
and some failing light shots and back lit barrels
this is awesome what kind of camera did you use and how long have you been surfing?

I shot with a Nikon D300s, all of today’s water shot were with a 10.5 fisheye. I have an SPL water housing that protects my camera. I’ve been surfing for 15 years+ but as for surf photography 3 weeks. It’s easy when you’ve been thinking about these shots for years and obsessing over surf mags forever. Really the hardest thing is the training and physical endurance it takes to stay in the right spot in Hawaiian surf
