Below are a handful of other images and assignments that were ran in the latest issue including FAU baseball, paddleboarding and an article on local surfer Codi Monroy!

Check out local Cheyne Cottrell as we scored a little session in Palm Beach on Monday published on Surfline.com in Ides of March.
A few shots from Monday afternoon as I headed up to shoot Cheyne, Scott, Ryan, Peter, Brian, Jensen and a whole bunch of other clowns fighting for one peak somewhere in Palm Beach County. I forgot my monopod, so a fat 4×4 did the job! I think I saw the worst fist fight in the water ever, not cool.
Wednesday morning we charged it early to get some good light with the rising swell hitting our coast. Meeting up with Cheyne Cottrell, his buddy Will Tant, Matt Oberman, Wesley Desouza, and Tahitian Hira Teriinatoofa, we caught the quick swell window. On the beach it was about 40 degrees, which was not exactly was I am used to. It was a beutiful day! All images copyright © 2009 Ben Hicks
Last week a few of the stars aligned and South Florida actually got good. I headed up to search with Wes and Matt, meeting up with rest of the state of south fl to find some prestine conditions to shoot in. I really wanted to shoot water but the currents just weren’t right. Two sessions throughout the day provided for some great shots not to mention shooting some of the best in Florida. Here are a bunch and please no stealing the images with out contacting me first. Thanks!
