3rd Annual 10 FPS Photos 2012

Take a look at the 2012 edition of my 10 Frames Per Second (FPS) video which is a review of the last 12 months of shooting.  Check out more with my 3rd Annual Photo Exhibit at Island Water Sports on Friday January 4, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. where I will present my most memorable images and describe what it took to get each shot.  Win some cool stuff from Quiksilver and Electric while supporting the local Jr. Surfrider Foundation.

The swell was still in the water and so was the push to get some shots.  Matt and I have been about 0 for 10 and it was about time we got two solid days of shooting in.  Headed up with Cheyene mid-morning with the call being Jupiter area.  All the boys were there, packed together, taking off one after another.  Not nearly as good as the day before but still good conditions to shoot in.

In the un-lucky event that the 2 months of straight swell dying the day of the contest this weekend, I cant imagine the organizers were very pleased.  They ended up running the Longboard and womens on day one with shin high waves.  Day two, a cold front had passed and the event was spared to be just barely rideable for the Pro and Jr Pro.  I still was a bit under the weather and was blowing out odd looking things from my nose, so I left before the Pro event ended.  South Fl boys were doing well, although it was still only thigh high!

Juno Pier swell and Arrest!

Wednesday morning I headed up to Juno Pier to shoot and maybe catch a few myself.  Arrived at about 7am for some good morning light and shot for a while until the tide got pretty high.  Went in exchanged my camera for a board and was paddling out when a fisherman and a the whole lineup got into a little quarrel.  Long story short…from my understanding the fisherman was shark fishing with his line directly into the lineup, which was illegal.  One of the surfers then snapped the line.  The fisherman, on the end of the pier, then proceeded to throw out a sinker weight, striking an off duty West Palm Beach Police officer.  The cops were called, sides were heard and the fisherman was escorted away, supposedly arrested….
