Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

Quick trip to OBX

It’s been a pretty wild year of finding all sorts of photo work outside of surfing and action sports. The work is of course awesome, it’s mostly fishing and boating or something like that so I cannot complain. However, it’s really taking me away from surf. Not the ocean, just the surf. I’ve been a little anxious waiting all winter for a real proper winter swell to hit but that just hasn’t happened this winter. 

So, off to the outer banks.  

Forecast kinda got sketchy for a second,but we went with our gut and the original Surfline forecast. We packed up and off we went. 

 

quick iPhone pic of the landscape. The best sand dunes on earth.

It was kinda firing.  

The wind forecast scared us a bit but Jason Hines was on it, utilizing at least five different forecasting sites he was a step ahead of it. 

 

Justin Parr, not a drop out of place.

Lucas Rogers, no doubt snagging the better waves the first morning we were up there. He was putting on a backside barrel clinic.

Quentin Turko is an absolute charger. I wanted to upload an entire sequence of this shot but it’s difficult to do from a phone on the road. :/    visit my Instagram @natehphoto to see the whole sequence.

Finding the doggy door.    Quentin Turko snuck out of the above monster for one heck of a dramatic exit.

I think that’s going to do it for this post. I have a bunch of video and tons more photos so I’ll probably try to post another update.  

until then, thanks for visiting my blog
