Pristine Roller. I saw this one roll in from the outside and the lighting was perfect that morning.
Water Flower. This was the moment when all the backwash from the previous set wave swamped up the face of the next, creating a cool "ridging” effect.
Blue Marlin. It was an incredibly glassy day and I was the only one out. I was standing in ankle-high water and saw this pitch and it had a unique look to it.
Open Door. Rarely does my 50mm lens and housing fit inside a barrel. I was lucky enough to have this wave break over me and it had the perfect shape.
Cut Glass. You see so many wave images nowadays, it’s a challenge to get something unique. I snapped this as any old wave, but didn’t realize how the lip looked until I got home.
Smooth Lump. Rarely do I ever spend a session in super clear and calm water. It’s definitely a rewarding experience.
Mini. One my of most unique images I’ve ever shot. I love how glassy the lip was on this ankle high nugget.
Pitching. I made a trip down to Southern California and this was what I got.
Square. Offshore wind created the texture on this wave.
Hawaiian Blue. I’ve always admired the color of the water down south. I wish there was more of that here in NorCal.
Wiiide. The backwash hit the lip causing it to pitch rectangular overhead.
Iceberg Blue. One of the bigger waves that came through.
Clean Blue. Managed to squeeze inside this nugget.
Sunset Lip. Splashing down at sunset.
Green Serene. It almost looks like a snail shell if you add some imagination.
Textured Slope. Shot during the golden hour at The Wedge.
Sunset Glass. The wind picked up right before dark but still managed to get this shot.
Focus. I lay flat on the water to get as close to the surface as possible to get a shot like this.
Golden Hour. The best seat to see the sunset is in the water.
