A life time of creating. 

NSB on Monday

Back in Florida and frothing to shoot.

A bunch of rad groms including Caroline Marks are in town for the NSSA East Coast Championships, so i headed up to NSB to see them and try to get some shots. Surf is small but fun this week, just enough to get some turns in. 

Always stoked to shoot with the Glenn's as well, and they are always killing it so it makes it easy. Always a good time with those guys. 

Bringing the ladies to the beach. 

So good to see the East Coasts most talented female ripper, Caroline Marks. 

Nose Chillin. 

Small but fun enough, Daniel Glenn can make the most out of days like this. 

Strongest backhand this side of the Mississippi, Caroline Marks always impresses. 

Matthew Glenn was trying so hard to find a wedge to link up on with me, and then I almost missed this wave as I was snapping some images of Natalie Glenn, the Glenn's ripping mom! But, Managed to hip shoot this frame and kinda like it. 

Caroline's youngest brother Dawson Marks. He's a fire ball and the raddest grom I know. 

Smooth Stepping

Its good to see Daniel recovering from an ankle injury. He's definitely getting his air game back on point. 

Matthew Glenn. 

Shakkas

Matthew Glenn hunting down some weggies with me. Stoked to link up so much even in tough conditions. Like I said, they make it easy. Stoked! 

Not a bad way to start of a week. Monday's aren't all that bad. 

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great day!

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. 

Matthew Glenn packed up a few lefts.

Looking into the hunny hole. 

Chris Yergans on this like a redfish in the mangroves. 

Yergans new approach to barrel riding. 

 

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.

Two Days in OBX. Winter Storm Jonas in Adobe Slate Book.

It was a wild trip to the Outer Banks this past weekend. With Winter Storm Jonas making such a fuss coming across the nation we knew we had to get out there and get some surf. I wasn't about to sit back and look at all the posts from an epic storm in the northern part of the East Coast, I wanted my piece as well as Daniel & Matthew Glenn and Chauncey Robinson. 

Here is our story.

Winter Solstice.

Continuing on with the Winter stoke. Yesterday marked the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. We took full advantage of what daylight we had and got some work done at Sebastian Inlet.  

Joined by the SunBum A Team, yesterday would have been a great day to sit on the beach and watch the action unfold. No worries if you missed it, I captured as much as I could and am stoked to share it with you now. 

Two of New Smyrna's favorite kids, Bobby Levy and Matthew Glenn. 

Shenanigans. 

Chauncey Robinson. 

Bobby and I have a tendency to get this shot each time we shoot. Close is good. 

Matthew Glenn going vertical on his backhand. Classic inlet view. 

Yesterday had a few solid moments on the sand bar, keep looking... 

Matthew Glenn has a stylish approach in the air. 

Its good to see Wiley Robinson getting back in form. He was out for the summer due to a pretty bad broken leg, looks like he'll make a nice recovery in the next few weeks. 

I was amped to see Brock Taylor push his air game a little yesterday, finally got a few shots of him up there. 

Sand Bar goodies. 

Chauncey Robinson maintaining control of first peak.

Wiley Robinson. 

After Wiley threw this air rotator he paddled back out past me saying he's not yet ready to try to land these, but i'm sure it felt good to have a go at them again! 

Brock Taylor had his Air game on yesterday! 

Bobby. 

Bobby. 

Bobby Levy. 

If there's surf, you're sure to see David Speir out there. I'm pretty stoked on this angle, it really shows how steep first peak can be. 

And of course Blake Speir is not going to let dad surf alone, he'll be in the barrels as much as his pops. 

One more for David Speir. 

Where style meets water, Matthew Glenn. 

Bobby getting nice and vertical! 

Matthew Glenn. 

Not sure who this is, but he sure took the high line on this wave. 

Bobby Levy was searching for this barrel all day. stoked we linked up with at least one! 

More sand bar action. 

Blake Speir. 

Blake. 

New rule of thirds with the Chaun. 

I gotta end this off with the most stoked from out there, Chauncey Robinson, da guy. 

Fun times. 

So amped to see the Ocean waken and give gifts like this! Looks like we should have some really fun days ahead. Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for stopping in at my blog!

the Chuan Part 1.

I say the Chaun Part 1 because i know parts 2- infinity are still on their way, I'll try to keep tract. 

I really enjoy shooting with Chauncey Robinson, he's one of the best, most humble surfers I've ever met. Its always a pleasure. 

Yesterday had some fun, brief moments at the inlet, check 'em out. 

December and the wetsuits are back. getting ready for buuurrrr..... 

If yo rever find yourself standing around with me, and there just happens to be a camera in my hand, there's a solid chance that lifestyles follow. 

Frowning is the new cool. 

Pretty stoked on these Vissla Wetsuits, they are looking pretty clean cut. Chaun models them well. 

 

Thank You for stopping by!

Winter Months.

Tiss the Season... for surf. 

Here's another great morning we had at Sebastian Inlet last week. Chest high fun with Chauncey Robinson, Wiley Robinson, Paul Reineke, and Dave Speir. 

What a morning to wake up and go for a surf. 

That's a view that will never get old. Chauncey Robinson soaking it all in.

A little foggy, amazing colors, couldn't ask for more. 

the chaun. 

The first barrel was an almost amazing shot. 



There were some super fun close out sections and the guys lit them up. Chauncey closed this one out with a bang. 

Glassy Moment.

How are these next two shots for a winter scene. These frames make me shiver just looking at them. 

Icy Peak. 

Wiley Robinson making it Snow. 


Above sequence, Paul Reineke tagged that close-out hard. 

Above Sequence, I love watching Dave Speir surf. Such clean, powerful style. 

Chauncey follows right in Dave's footsteps. 

I think rainbows are attracted to Chauncey... they just follow him around. 

Hows this for a hollow surprise. No takers. 

Wiley Robinson found this nugget! That will make getting up early worth it every time. 

Speir knows where to find the drainers. 

Speir, again... 


This is the best. Check out that guy on the pier rocking his powered wheel chair with more rods than a charter boat. Goals. 

Stoked to have such a rad crew at the inlet. 

Thank you all for visiting!
