Most Moist

Yesterday we went out for our first in-water photoshoot!
I borrowed my roommate’s Olympus shock/water proof (point & shoot) camera. Tied it to my wrist with dental floss (tres professional), slapped on some goofy looking goggles, jumped in the water and tried not to get run over – last thing I need is some fins to the face. The quality of this camera is quite poor, but it gave me the chance to see how hard it really is to be a surf photographer. Positioning is incredibly important. Not to mention the timing, since this camera has a terrible delay that I had to try and compensate for. But it all worked out in the end – though I did at one point actually lose the camera… Maybe next time I’ll use something a bit stronger than floss (sorry Kelsey).

Dipping the port underwater during a high performance maneuver is pretty risky, especially when you're not using a wide lens. Sometimes you blow shots, get pissed and keep swimming. But other times you get a neat one of @cohenscorner and it ends up on @surfline ! Even though every time I look at this shot I think about how sweet the next frame would have been, just leaves me wanting more.
