The flight of the turtles

February 24, 2012 3 Comments

The swell has died of significantly on the north-shore of Oahu. Over the last couple of days we have been doing the tourist things like shopping, drinking, site seeing and partying in Waikiki. Today we decided to find some turtles for some underwater shots. The conditions for underwater shots weren’t the best, the sun was shining through every so often but the clouds were hanging around.

Here are two shots of Crush and Squirt “the turtles from Finding Nemo” GNARLY DUDE!

 

The Waimea bay was  full and the locals decided to start digging the trench so it can flow to the ocean. They do this to create a static wave similar to the flow rider on the Gold Coast. It took a while to get it going but by night time it was flowing pretty good. Here are some of the shots from the session. Long exposures for something different.

I love the wedding video. I would love to have you phtoagroph Luke and Adrian’s wedding. I don’t know how these guys are going to come up with enough money for a wedding. Poor Adrian doesn’t even know if she will be able to come up with enough money to go back to college next semester. Time will tell and the Lord with provide. We will see I don’t know if Philip will be far behind in the wedding department. He will probably deliberate longer and take longer to get engaged,but he is dating a wonderful young lady keep you posted.

Lake Erie is the best kept secret to the sunifrg world. : ) The water can range from as flat as glass to 6+ footers when the headwinds are strong. Most of the time we deal with 1 2 footers, so having stable boards is a necessity. We’ve demoed various boards and found that the Surftech standup paddle boards reign as the best on the lake. Lake Erie’s coastline is beautiful with tall, shale cliffs and there are plenty of inlets and natural areas to be explored. Come visit Ohio some time and we can share a rich experience on Lake Erie!

Fast forward 6 hours and my alarm goes off, I stumble and drop my phone on the wall and manage to fall out of bed trying to turn it off. I hit the snooze button whilst I notice my partner being woken. I head back to sleep thinking I won't head down the beach.
