How do you even CAPTURE these kinds of shots? I can’t even imagine trying to navigate waves while simultaneously catching these amazing pix!
March 9, 2012 at 12:57 pm
thanks I use a heavy waterhousing for my Nikon D300s and train all year to be able to handle the waves.
Check out this day on 1/4/12 (https://thesurfingphotog.com/2012/01/05/honolua-bay/) One of the biggest days of my winter.
Aloha and thanks for checking out my site
March 9, 2012 at 1:09 pm
Nice photos! It makes me want to fly out there!
Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!
March 9, 2012 at 1:02 pm
I just started to get a bunch of emails and then I figured out what was happening. Very cool and Thank you
March 9, 2012 at 1:06 pm
one word for it: WOW
March 9, 2012 at 1:03 pm
Very good shots… Wish I can surf soon.. 😉
March 9, 2012 at 1:24 pm
I mind surf all the time, it keeps me sane between trips to the beach. I even used to surf in the winter in New York cause I couldn’t wait for the spring
March 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm
Wow… your an addict of surfing… Lucky you.. 🙂 Go for it..
March 9, 2012 at 3:36 pm
Cool photography “Daniel Fryer”. The natural beauty of our nature, I only can say that it’s an wonderful photography.
March 9, 2012 at 1:32 pm
I love being out side, I have to find a really strong SPF sun screen though to last in the water hahaha, thanks for checking me out and leaving a comment 🙂

Mahalo’s all around sir, I’m a big fan of Retirement but instead of taking it all off at 65, I decided to retire 3-5 months a year and take pictures. What ever makes you happy right 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 5:04 pm
Suddenly I realized how much I miss summer…
Sweden is not a good place when you don’t like winter. 😦
March 9, 2012 at 1:52 pm
It’s funny you say that because one of the best surf photographers on the planet lives in Sweden, Jeff Flindt. Well at least he spend summers there with his wife and kid
March 9, 2012 at 3:30 pm
Swedish summers are wonderful! But the winters are so dark and cold. Depressing as h*ll..
March 10, 2012 at 7:12 am
I used to live in New York and surf thru out the winters, don’t know how it compares to Sweden but tomorrow the USA has Daylight Saving Time. Basically an indication of lighter times. I’m one of the always optimistic people that believes the cold only makes the warmth feel that much better. So I hope you are currently stuck inside freezing haha
March 10, 2012 at 9:27 am
I wish I could swim and was young again. Thanks for sharing your bravery. Connie
March 9, 2012 at 1:53 pm
thats why we have crazy young kids willing to put there life at risk to get the shots, relax and enjoy the photos, you earned it 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 3:29 pm
How do you take these pictures? Are you like intensely talented with surfing, holding objects on moving surfaces and photography or do you just video tape it all and hope for the best? I think I know the answer already, I just find it hard to imagine it.
March 9, 2012 at 1:56 pm
No I only take stills, I have a water housing for my SLR Nikon and I swim out to the break and hold position by treading water with swim fins 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 3:27 pm
thanks sweetie, I’m having fun. Glad you enjoyed them Aloha
March 9, 2012 at 5:05 pm
i was wondering how you were taking those, too. unique perspective!
March 9, 2012 at 2:07 pm
I have a waterproof case for my Camera (SPL Water housing) and I swim out to the surfers and get as close as I can with out getting hit or throw over the wave. Kind of dangerous but lots of fun
March 9, 2012 at 5:07 pm
Wow, those waves look amazing, and these pictures are so inspirational, especially the first one!
March 9, 2012 at 2:23 pm
Thanks, pulling into a barrel in Hawaii is a right of passage for every surfer. Why it’s the mecca of surfing.
March 9, 2012 at 5:23 pm
You are further inspiring me to move south. Haha. Great captures! What kind of camera/housing do you use?
March 9, 2012 at 2:40 pm
SPL water housing 17-55 port (mid range adjustable). Nikon D300s Nikon 17-55 F/2.8 also shoot nikon 10.5 fisheye
March 9, 2012 at 3:24 pm
Wow. It’s amazing
March 9, 2012 at 2:59 pm
Wow . It’s amazing.
March 9, 2012 at 3:00 pm
Man do I want to learn how to surf!
March 9, 2012 at 3:08 pm
It’s never too late, If I can give you any pointers, please ask Aloha
March 9, 2012 at 3:22 pm
I would actually love to. After I get over some fears. But I don’t leave near beautiful beaches. =(
March 9, 2012 at 4:05 pm
Just do it! There’s not much more in life as fulfilling as going out and spending time on the ocean, looking in at the shore…so much just washes away. I’ll be glad to help as well. Surfing is amazing.
March 9, 2012 at 3:35 pm
Ah! Same as the reply above.. I would love too! >o<
Maybe I can at least do something along the lines this summer.
I actually play with the body boards some times.
March 9, 2012 at 4:07 pm
Such beast shots!! man I wanna get out there and cute it up!!!! I’m a Cali girl and LOVE surfing…
March 9, 2012 at 3:23 pm
I grew up on the East Coast but a large part of my heart belongs to central – Northern California. I’ll be in LA on the 19-27 so check back for some Cali shots
Amazing photos! Compliments. Thanks for sharing. Many greetings from north-east of Italy.
Thanks do you get surf in the Mediterranean Sea? If not I hope you at least have nice beach, Aloha 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 3:34 pm
Love the lighting on the second one, great silhouette! As a surfer and photographer, I love your work!
March 9, 2012 at 3:33 pm
Thanks, I was blown away how many responses I got today from being on the front page of WordPress.com I really love surfing and try to show that in my photos. Checked out your site, I missed so many amazing hikes in Hawaii being busy at the beach, I plan on hitting a bunch this year. Aloha
March 9, 2012 at 3:44 pm
Awesome pictures! I love your header photo too, what a wave.
March 9, 2012 at 3:46 pm
Sweet shots! I love ’em.

March 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm
March 9, 2012 at 4:25 pm
Nice shot !! Took in Hawaii ?! people who can take sport photo is so talented for me! Cool
March 9, 2012 at 4:33 pm
I travel all around but all of these shots were taken on the North Shore of Oahu, HI this winter. @ the surf spot Rocky Point (named for the jagged reef that is exposed along the beach)
March 9, 2012 at 4:47 pm
I am deathly afraid of sharks and after seeing Soul Surfer, I was kinda like yeah maybe ill stay more inland, but your post has sparked my interest in surfing! Gorgeous shots and congrats on being freshly pressed 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 4:39 pm
I met Bethany this year in Hawaii on the North Shore of Oahu, really sweet girl with a big smile on her face all day. Sharks are there but surfing is an addicting sport once your hook not much will stop you from going into the water. I don’t even have a board to stop the bite, I just swim into the break so lets hope for good luck hehe.
Thanks for checking out the site 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 4:44 pm
You seem to have gotten all the great shots you could! AMAZING!
Great post and congrats on being Freshly Pressed!
March 9, 2012 at 5:15 pm
Being Freshly pressed is amazing, I’m traveling right now and it has brought back so much Aloha. I want to send WordPress a thank you card hehe
March 9, 2012 at 5:25 pm

March 9, 2012 at 6:54 pm
Unbelievable shots! I just talked to someone from Hawaii and it made me wanna surf! These are great photos! Keep it up!
March 9, 2012 at 6:50 pm
If you ever get the chance to go you will be hooked for life. I’m an ok surfer but to watch what some of these guys and girls do on waves is amazing. they do it for the love of it not cause I’m taking photos haha

Sweet! We are in Maui right now and I’m totally inspired to surf this afternoon for some reason….
March 9, 2012 at 7:04 pm
if your looking for surfing lessons check out http://www.WavesHawaii.com. My friend Val Frey operates the school on maui
March 9, 2012 at 7:26 pm
im a frustrated surfer…i envy the surfers you managed to capture!
March 9, 2012 at 7:09 pm
Keep practicing and if you don’t get any better you can always get a camera and be like me hahaha. just kidding, I just can’t land an air to safe my life
March 9, 2012 at 7:28 pm
nonetheless it was great!
March 9, 2012 at 8:35 pm
March 9, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Really nice – do you have the camera tethered?
Thanks for sharing!
March 9, 2012 at 7:39 pm
Yeah my water housing has a leash. 3lb for my camera (nikon d300s) 3lb for the water housing (SPL). So basically I have a 6lbs weight attached to my arm. So if I ever let go its a good chance it will knock me out when I’m spinning a around in the white wash (the area after a wave crashes).
So long story short I NEVER LET GO! hahaha
March 9, 2012 at 7:45 pm
I love the photos. Surfing seems like so much fun. How I hope I can grab the opportunity one day!
Changed my life, talk to any surfer… we all say the same thing. Almost like a religion
March 9, 2012 at 7:46 pm
beach boy 🙂
please don’t try this at home 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 7:58 pm
If i could sleep at the beach I would hahaha 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 8:06 pm
Last photo is great!
March 9, 2012 at 8:13 pm
Damn. I gotta get out of NYC more. Seeing those photos makes me want to take the next train out of Dodge and join you there on the North Shore. Great photos!
March 9, 2012 at 8:34 pm
He thats what I did at 24, Packed my Bags and left Long Island. I’ve been travel almost non-stop. Work a few months take a few months off. I call it part time retirement. haha. let me know if you ever hit dodge. otherwise I’ll be back in NY in june for a wedding
March 9, 2012 at 9:45 pm
Gets me longing for a relaxing vacation. Nice photos.
March 9, 2012 at 9:00 pm
Great photos! Surfing is on my bucket list. Gonna try it pretty soon. We have a lot of beautiful beaches here where I can surf. Thanks for posting this!
March 9, 2012 at 10:42 pm
I mean five, five awesome pictures!
March 9, 2012 at 11:19 pm
I wish there were more long boarders on the North Shore to “Hang Ten” but sadly new school has taken over.
March 9, 2012 at 11:46 pm
how lucky you are?
that is real life with sun and blue sky to cool down wiht sea.
I love it style.

March 10, 2012 at 2:08 am
A warm congratulations hug from me flying through WordPress. Congratulations for the sweet yummy photos. As a child visiting the Kenyan Coast with my parents I used to get worried that the waves would carry the surfers away never to return. I would be happy to see them later join us for dinner at the Hotel. Thanks for sharing these “Photos for life!”
March 10, 2012 at 2:19 am
Awesome pics like it…
March 10, 2012 at 3:17 am

March 10, 2012 at 4:02 am
Would be fun to see some of the “missed” pictures – not that those aren’t great! But i’m sure some could be quite interesting as well.
March 10, 2012 at 6:28 am
If you go to my earliest post Nov 11-20th you will see what 40% of my left over shots look like. Full of blurry water droplets and out of frame surfers. The basics to any good photography are the same. It’s being able to get those shots while moving and getting throw around thats hard. Thanks for finding me
March 10, 2012 at 9:12 am

Thanks… I’m on the East Coast of the USA going to the West coast soon and I really hope I get one more good winter swell in California… so I don’t want the summer to come too soon hehe

March 11, 2012 at 5:09 am
how do you even start to capture these wonderful shots? are you like underwater sneaking your head up and out of the ocean? haha well nice pictures!
March 11, 2012 at 5:39 am
That about sums it up, I swim out take as many frames as I can before I have to dive under (so I don’t get pounded by the wave). It’s never “safe” but once you get a feel for the ocean you can safely swim around, just don’t get greedy haha
March 11, 2012 at 6:38 am
Amazing shots! I’ve never surfed, but I still can’t get enough of the ocean. I love it!

March 23, 2012 at 9:37 am
I like the fisheyes in the barrel but everything else close range I prefer a wide angle without distortion
