Imagine if you spent all day at the beach and your job was to keep your eye on the ocean and have to watch this…Torture. Zuma Lifeguards, what a job.
Pascal Stansfield probably has some of the most natural talent in the LA area. I’ve seen him after a big night of Hollyweirdness paddle out in a daze, only to do things that would take years of attempts to pull off. This morning, he was just getting a few before work at his company Freedom Artist but still sticking a perfect little alley-oop.
2009 ASP Longboard World Champ Harley Ingleby is probably one of the most unknown world champion you have ever heard of, but for those who know better, you have seen his ability to ride any type of board. And ride them really well I might add. Watch him go through a myriad of surfboard types, from the finless planks know as the alayas, to multiple version of the shortboard, then back on the logs and high performance longboards. To be honest, what can’t he ride?!?
Dale Rhodes paddled out this day for about 15 minutes. He managed to catch a few waves and here’s one of them. I guess you don’t need to be out all day when you score a wave like this.
I spotted Weston Haver who has been a fixture throughout the Malibu surf for years this morning at Zuma. With a building swell expected, it seemed as though everyone including Weston was warming, here he is throwing buckets on one of the smaller ones.
With the present flurry of waves from the North West hitting California, I was lucky enough to capture Jordan Tappis at a LA secret spot pulling into a near sea level dregging barrel. This spot is not for the weak at heart, and not for any goofy foots as it’s an air drop take off that’s right next to gnarly boulders. Oh, did I mention that it breaks in about a foot of water!
Sunday morning in front of the Lifeguard Headquarters, I caught Steven Lippman scoring some makeable and sometimes not makeable barrels at Zuma.
This was the last thing I saw when I was swimming in after shooting Russ Jones on his longboard. A beautiful evening only got better when the sun set and the sky went from blue to orange. So worth swimming in that cold water.
