Gifts with T's.

Hey Guys! 

So as I was packing this T for Stephen when I figured that I would give him something extra to say thank you for the support and for being stoked to wear a T with my work on it! Makes sense to me. 

So, to the first 100 online orders I will be giving out a special piece, handmade, of some sorts. I'm not saying that it will be a matted 5x7 of the image on the shirt, it could turn out to be something totally different and that's where the fun is. I've got some pretty sweet ideas that I can do very affordably, so order a T and see what you get!  

You can find these Men's T's along with Women's Tanks in the "Shop" tab on this site. Or click "here".

Thank you and have a wonderful day!

My take on Hurricane Arthur.

It didn't produce hurricane swell until well after it passed the shores of Forida, but, I still got my 2 hour window of opportunity to see some amazing swell come in. It sat of the coast of FL and built on monday-tuesday as tropical storm Arthur, thats when we got our rain and wind. By Wed morning it had gone just far enough north to give us some chest to head high swell while basting us with offshore winds. Those off-shores quickly diminished the incoming short-period swell to a mere foot or two in just a matter of hours. Most people around here never even saw what Arthur had given us... 

I almost talked myself out of going to shoot photos this morning, I was tired, and I really didn't think that the winds would have cleaned up yet. The night before I was surfing 6ft 3 second-period swell with 20-30mph winds in downpour! I thought that there could possibly be some size left to it but I had no idea what I would find when I got to the beach, thats why it was hard to wake myself up. I usually get to the sand by sunrise about 6:10am, this morning I left the house at that time. 

I was walking the trail to the beach trying to listen for that distinct sound... CRACK, CRACK, CRACK... That's the sound I have learned to love here in FL. Well, I did hear it. My walking turned more into running like a giddy lil grom as I bolted to see what was making my favorite sound. I turned the last corner to the beach and got my first glimpse of what was going on, my only regret was I hadn't really touched base with any surfers the evening before. I had no one out there with me. It was just me and some lonely barrels just doing their thing.

And this is my take.

Three months in on the East Coast and I got to see my first glimpse of what this place can do. I'm excited because I know that this was a tiny swell, with a tiny window for surf. I'm really amped to see what a big one can do. 

 

Thanks for checking in! And a special thanks to ESM for the media support. They used a couple images, those can be found here:

Arthur Showing in Florida.

Hey guys! 

It's been a long, busy day for me and I haven't been able to get to all of my images that I would like to put together for a little showing of Tropical Storm Arthur... But I did grab two for a pre-view. It's been a fun day! Mine started at 6am, when I did not want to get up, I did anyways, and it turned out to be a great decision! My day ended with an amazing surf sesh and beautiful sunset. 

Well here's the two, more to come soon. 

I was thinking about walking the beach for a little while to attempt some scenic barrel shots... But after I saw this little wave go through I was way to amped to stay out of the water any longer. It was go time. I figured I could just try to capture the scene from the water where I like it the most. :) 

Today's description of Arthur's surf: Clean. It has been a solid, clean day.

Happy July! So amped to get summer swell! Can't wait to post the rest...
