I was asked to cover 8 guys on a surfing trip of their lives aboard the Indies Trader 3 throughout the Mentawai Islands over the course of 12 days. Adventure is not even the word. Chasing waves with the best boats and technology available….. in the best place in the world is an experience I wanted to share. So I did, everyday on my blog partnership with www.Slavetothewave.com! I had a series of blogs where I wrote and posted photos of everyday and the people, waves and experiences we encountered. You can see them all here www.slavetothewave.com/ben-hicks/
Here are some of my favorite images from the trip.
Recently we were asked to create a website, flyers and marketing materials for Boca Surf Camp. All imagery, backgrounds, and portraits were also shot by us.

Last week South Beach Miami decided to turn on during the Florida blizzard we had. Got a ton of shots, here are four that ran so far….
This week I though I would try something new. Since I shoot so many sequences and usually only show a shot or two, I thought it may be more interesting by showing you guys the entire move instead of just one frame. So here ya go. Learn to turn….this week with Cheyne Cottrell.
Check out local Cheyne Cottrell as we scored a little session in Palm Beach on Monday published on Surfline.com in Ides of March.
