Hey! Longtime no post. An update. It's wedding season! Full bloom.
To keep sanity during such a season, you have to mix it up. For me, that's been playing with video. I've been surfing for 14 years now, and rode a boogey/bodyboard for many years before that. I probably should be way better by now - but, that's another story.
Anywho, after acquiring a waterhousing I've been working on surf photography/videography, mostly because it's fun. Too much fun. Almost as fun as actually surfing sometimes! That part of the website will be updated soon enough, when I get a bit more free time. (Unrelated, Eastern Surf Magazine published one of my first attempts at it! Fantastic magazine and people). Getting side tracked again. 2 or 3 days ago, I filmed local surfer Amanda Giberson for a few minutes - who despite riding mediocre St. Augustine waves, per usual turned them into something worth watching. I quickly edited those few waves together to "Ir Para Llegar" by Ishto Juevez , just to see how it'd all look. Uploaded it to vimeo for a few friends to watch - and the response was amazing. Strangers on the internet have played it several hundred times, sharing it over 60. Then I found out the spanish website Valenciasurf.com also picked it up and featured it on their homepage - which made me realize, "maybe someone who'd browse this action packed blog would like to see...". So, here you go! Lucky person that you are. Hope you enjoy, and if not, you're welcome to comment below. Thanks!
