Up in the air…

I went for a long walk hoping for something last night and just as I was about to give up a squall blew through and I got a couple that made my afternoon.  I don’t do enough long-exposures even though I love them immensely. Then this morning I checked out the little shorey and the tide was too low. It’s a fine line out there on this bank between pumping or ripped up shit! So I waited around, had a cafe and suddenly a good cast arrived to rip the shit out of it. While there was a lot of attempts with only a few landed, I can really see why Dane Reynolds is the best surfer in the world. His effortless display was a pleasure to watch. Craig Anderson was as casual as ever but it was the local boys, knowing the bank well, that got the best ones. As I write this its pumping with a few crew still ripping it to pieces. But the best thing about today is that at last the sun is out and shinning with intent hopefully for the afternoon.
