We finally got a winter swell! Seems like it took forever. Normally we have already had dozens of great surf days by mid-January but this year is different and shaping up to be a terrible year for surf here. But this morning the swell finally filled in (it was supposed to be here yesterday) and even though it was cloudy and grey, the waves lived up to expectations. There were lots of barrels and we had a set of three ringers in the water – these guys came with still photographer and videographer in tow. Wonder what brand or magazine they work for?
Some photos you might enjoy, all taken with my new Canon 5D Mark II which is not a sport camera but still managed to get some great action shots.
