A life time of creating. 

The Barrel Post.

We've had a few proper days in what seem to me to be an extremely slow winter. But, the days we have had are some really good days. 

About a week ago we had an amazing south swell pop up. It wasn't huge, but the shape was perfect. There's been claims by many that this was the best barrel day of their lives. Well, take a look and decide if you think it would have been fun. 

Waking up to Central Florida blessings. 

not huge, but very playful. 

I think a lot of people had their eyes locked onto views like this. 

Brock Taylor on the hunt. 

Chauncey Robinson. 

 I wasn't able to swim long, the current was gnarly but the views were epic. 

Unknown to me in left hand drainer. 

Matthew Glenn. 

Brandon DeFillipo. 

Matthew freaked these pelicans out. 


I had to give up on swimming, just wan't getting the results I wanted. So I headed into the beach to shoot lifestyles of the Chaun. 

Epic running lifey. 


The views from the beach weren't to bad, so i stuck around to snipe off a few. 

Daniel Glenn came to play. 

Daniel Glenn. A guy walked by me and commented, "why would you do an air instead of get barreled??". I would say why not do a big air over a barrel section, seems fun to me! 

Matthew Glenn, little chopper. 

It was a-frames and offshores. Great job Florida. 

Brock Taylor practicing barrel rides for an upcoming trip to Central America. 

Daniel and Brock working together to gain scale on wave hight and air hight. 

Mike Knapp logged serious barrel time. 

Give Daniel Glenn some steep sections and watch him explode. 

Every time I looked, Mike Knapp getting pitted. 

My buddy Kieth said he made more barrels this day than any other time he can remember. 

Daniel, seriously. 

 

Brandon DeFillipo tearing in on his backhand. 

 

Senior Brock. He's always out to have a good time. 

 

Really good surf. 

Where were you!!? 

Seriously.. that right. 

 

Another of Kieth. 

I've been fishing with Chris Yergans a lot lately and I can tell you both his surfing and fishing are on point. 

Not sure who this gentleman is, but i'm pretty sure he would be stoked to see this sequence. If you know him let him know! 

Scenic Florida. 

Another unknown to me reaping the benefits of a good wind swell. 

Yergans catching barrels like they're snook. 

This guy is stoked. 

Chaunchooooo. 

Mike Knapp pretending he's still in Hawaii. 

Where were you Volume 2. 

The Chaun. Forever known as, The Chaun. 

Brandon DeFillipo almost able to stand up, and he's a big kid.

Daniel Glenn kinda made the surf pay, hacking it to pieces.

Sorry about a ton of lame captions and non-sense. Its hard to spend this much time at a computer. :/

I hope you scored this day! If you know people in these photos please feel free to share this post with them. I'm sure they will be grateful. 

Thanks for all the good times boys.
