Any time that I go shoot with more than one surfer, an underlying competition is felt amongst everyone. It’s a friendly competition of course, but no one wants to be the worst guy in the water. The fun part (other than getting to shoot surfing), is getting to be the judge in these little contest. This day while I was shooting a Drainpipes session of mostly closeouts and credit card air reverses, Brendan Hearne an amazing director and also ruling surfer paddled into this perfect little hook and won the session with this carving top turn. Power and style always a winner.
