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.

Maddie Peterson

With summer upon us Maddie and myself think its time for you to take every extra step and protect your skin!  

Maddie Peterson was in town a month ago for the WSL Pro Jr in Cocoa Beach. She was kind enough to model a few shots for me and SunBum. Limited on windows to shoot we had to go for the middle of the day harsh light conditions, which is always challenging, but then again it does make pretty good sense for sunscreen. 

Maddie is a beautiful person and an awesome surfer rising in the ranks of women's professional surfing as well as professional modeling. Make sure to follow her feed @maddiepeterson_ and enjoy the photos!

One of my favorites, the 30 SPF zinc facestick. This product works better than any other sunscreen I have used. Thanks SunBum!

Again thanks Maddie for the shots and smiles and thank you SunBum for all you do for the surfing community! Protect your skin!
