Day Trip To Florida!

Got a call last Monday saying it was gonna be good in Florida on tuesday and we should go down for the day. The plan was to meet in West Ashley at 3:30 and load up all of the boards and get down there around sunrise. 3:30 AM is a scary number. We were hoping for waves in the stomach to chest range and clean. The waves were head high plus and clean with air temps in the mid 80's. The lineup cleared out about mid morning and by the end of the day the Charleston crew was surfing alone. I surfed my brains out and got these shots so all in all it was definitely worth it!

Tuesday Surf

It felt really good to go out on tuesday and catch some waves. It felt so good that I really didnt take many photos. I surfed from mid morning til mid afternoon and took a few shots before heading home and grabbing some food. I was planning on shooting in the water when i got back but decided to surf more. Its been such a slow winter it felt good to get back in the water with a board. It was also very crowded with spring break, check out one of my shots of everyone walking back up the beach after a drift. Good times.

Slowing Down at Sunset

I hope everyone got to surf yesterday. Waves were fun and I know a lot of us were excited to get into the water with some sort of wave over waist high. I took a few photos yesterday but pretty much surfed all day so this post is about the night before. I got off work ( I am now working up at Ocean Surf Shop!) around 6 and got all of my gear and went to the washout. There was a constant drizzle and the skies were dark and cloudy. The waves were about stomach high and kinda closing out with the lower tide. I saw a few guys get some barrels and heard it was better a few hours prior.

I have been wanting to get out in the water and shoot with a slower shutter for a while now. For whatever reason, it's taken me a while to find the right conditions. Monday night was looking good so i went for it. I stayed out til after 8 playing around in the surf and had a fun time trying to keep my housing still and line up a few shots at it was getting dark fast. Heres a few from Monday, Ill post a few I shot from the beach of yesterdays session sometime tomorrow.
