Chaunchoo Pichoo the Film

We just finished editing our 2018 re-cap video, “Chaunchoo Pichoo the Film”.

Chauncey Robinson and I have been working all year round to gain some clips for a Florida Surf Film. As many of you know I am a full time photographer and sell photos to brands for my income… so, this project kinda doubled the work load this year. For every photo i have of Chauncey getting barreled or doing an air I also needed one of just as much value as a video clip. With the help of Filmers/Photographers Jacob Strahlo and Jeffery O’Niell we were able to mix up a pretty good feature based mostly at Sebastian Inlet and with the exception of a great, recent trip to the Outer Banks.

We definitely had our challenges. It wasn’t that great of a year for surf down here in Florida. What opportunity we did have we made the most of. Last Winter is really why this video is even put together, those January storms last year were epic.

All that being said, it’s time to really take this project to new levels. Filming for Chauncey’s next video possibly starts this afternoon. Hopefully we can have a couple more regions in the world included but if it’s just another Florida Film we’ll do our best to represent the state to its fullest.

Let’s hope for a full year of surf and opportunities. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit OUR site and watch this video :)

National Coffee Date.

It only comes once a year, and it's probably the best day of the year. National Coffee Day yesterday became worthy of a blog post. Spent the afternoon with Chauncey Robinson at the Patisserie in Vero Beach, Fl. Sipping on some joe and talking winter surf plans. 

I do love a good cup of coffee and it's hard to find a better cup than what the Patisserie serves up. Pretty cool cafe with amazing food as well. It was the only choice for National Coffee Day. 

I hope you got your fix on yesterday, if not, just dream into these images and pretend like you did. 

I go with black, and when I'm at the Patisserie the Monkey Bread with chocolate chunks gets me every time. 

Waiting in anticipation for that cup of coffee that will change the day, make it better and brighter. 

Chaun Chaun has been experimenting with tattooing himself. First Tats get dedicated to a cup of Coffee. He's a true surfer.

Thank You for a few minutes and sorry for the worthlessness of this post. But hey, it's all for the coffee.

CA Update, Surf is Pumping.

Hey guys! 

I always mean to post more especially when I'm away on a trip, but usually it ends up with me getting super busy and falling asleep while trying to just edit the photos. Thats definitely been the case this trip. After swimming 3-4 hours multiple times a day in massive surf its been my priority to to rest rather than post. 

So CA has had amazing surf, some of the best conditions seen for a lowers surf comp, and novelty breaks have been going off. Its been a photographers paradise and I wanted to share a glimpse of whats been happening.

Strands with Kevin Schulz.

Woke up to a sunrise and offshores. The swell had dropped a little but it was still super fun and very clean. 

Kevin Schuls put in some turns, airs, and barrels. 

Speed skating through the barrel. 

Breakfast at the Harbor House on a Sunday is a must, especially after such a rad session. The lifestyles just came naturally. 

Shoots, it has been awesome! I'm over my head in photos and waiting to get back home before even looking at most of them. I have a few more days out here and I'm looking forward to every second of it. 

Thanks for stopping in! And have a wonderful day.

Two weeks in Southern California.

hola! 

Well its June and that means that most serious u18 surfers will be in southern california this week for the Surfing America Championships. Stoked to say that I am here as well. Its a pretty fun time of the year to shoot at Lowers when all the kids are surfing their brains out. 

I've been here for a couple days now shooting and have covered a bit of the Volcom TCT a couple lay days, and am now looking forward to the start of the nationals tomorrow. its going to be an exciting few days as some of the best up comers rip into North America's greatest wave. 

Here's a glimpse of what I got so far. 

Kolohe Anding putting on a clinic at Lowers, San Clemente, CA. 

Griffin Colapinto blow tail at Lowers, San Clemente, CA. 

Groms frothing on overhead sections. 

Matt Passaquindici ripping into a section during the quarters for the Volcom TCT Champs. Check out that wall of water building up just waiting to get ripped into. Ah Lowers... 

The groms watching Kolohe rip into a wave, dreams are born here. 

Friendly gestures... classic lifestyles. 

Kolohe and Griffin. 

Chaunchoo tore into his heats during the Volcom TCT, bummer to see him put out in QF, still a great result earned by hard work. 

Playing around in San Clemente. 

Chauncey Robinson killing it with the panoramic. Thanks for the pic man. 

Roof top views in-between surf comps. 

Donuts are flowing pretty heavily, special thanks to Surfin Donuts for all the fuel. 

Only one way to burn off some donuts and that's by surfing. 

Matthew Glenn under the cliffs at State. 

Tough to see at a first glance but Matthew Glenn is tucked into that barrel, he even sneaked the doggy door. 

Chaun and his man turns. 

Evan Brownell throwing it up in a punchy beach break. This North Florida surfer rips. 

Speed ollies with Matthew Glenn. 

Chauncey Robinson going sledding.

Back to Lowers and sessions with the groms.

Its always fun here, and I'm really looking forward to this week. We have some solid swell in the forecast with the possibilities to really score. I'm hoping some serious work can get done starting at 5:30 am tomorrow. 

Keep checking back for more updates as this trip unfolds. 

thanks,

Sebastian Inlet from the Pier.

The other day at Sebastian Inlet i wanted to shoot from the pier, a perspective that I hadn't shot before. It seemed like a pretty good day for it, fair weather and a south wind, and the pier wasn't full of fishermen giving me a little room to move around. 

I shot these angles and am pretty happy with them! We watched a monster snook get pulled in, and enjoyed the bloody mess that the pier can be when fish are being caught. 

Enjoy the photos, 

A short Instagram edit I made inspired by the snook. 

Lively up there... River had a blast running around, chasing birds, and checking out people's fish. 

I briefly moved down to the beach in time to get brock Taylor on a big cutty. Then finished the day with Zoe and Andrew. 

Always Fun. 

Thanks for checking out the blog and enjoy the rest of my site.
