Brendan Hearne wins the session

Brendan Hearne Carving Top Turn Sequence

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.

Featuring GOAL Sports Cafe an amazing sports bar located right by the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. This place has the best vibe, great food and 13 TVs to watch any sporting event, but make reservations for a table as this place gets packed really fast!

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!
