VANS World Cup

So today was the first day of competition for the VANS World Cup, the second stop on the Triple Crown of Surfing, Held at Sunset Beach. The waves were a little choppy due to heavy winds but it was a solid 8-12 foot swell. I was granted access to shoot in the water during the comp, an honor I took with a lot of humility. I take what I do very seriously and am truly grateful for this opportunity. Enjoy the pictures and Mahalo for visiting my blog.

The break is a little far from the beach and with 10+ waves it looks miles away

When I got this picture of Gony Zubizarreta I realized I was way too close to the competitors, I have to stay in the channel away from the surfers, If I messed up a wave I would not only be ostracized by the surfing community but I probably get kicked out of Hawaii

An it was my honor to watch Sunny Garcia out at Sunset from the line up, a memory I will not soon forget.

If your interested in seeing how big it was today, check out this video. I went swimming in this!
