just a few pics to make sure you all remember....

why you are glad you dont live here! ;-)


jan 5 and 6 - north texas district contest (a south was held in
corpus) for a worthy cause - to support fellow surfer Wes Ellsworth
who has contracted ALS (Lou Gherigs disease). Wes is a great guy and
gives a lot to the local surf community, his daily surf forecasts are
spot on - and its not to easy to forecast surf in these parts.

so anyway, just a few amusing shots of a mix of those that came out

http://www.outdoorsphotographyusa.com/gallery5a.htm

15 yr old son of my lifelong friend George, is a very talented young
surfer and won 1st place in boys, jr. men, and jr. mens longboard,
quite a feat! Cody arguably had the best ride of the 2 day contest -
captured in its entirety in this 59-shot sequence:

That could have been edited to 12 shots, and not miss anything.

Glad you're getting some. That last cold front didn't bring much here.

Sorry to hear about Wes.

i knew i'd get an asswipe answer from, well, .......

and you could say the same thing about most tube sequences, but more
shots stretch the ride out, just like 6 tube shots, you only need one
with your logic

actually i was testing the limits of my new camera - santa was very
good to me with a nice new black box and one really really sweet piece
of glass.......


whazzup ferg? time for another ranch trip!

ya know surff, i might just throw all caution to the wind and let you
come along this time. a little extra comic entertainment is never a
bad thing - but please invest in tanning booth time before we go, i
get serious willies imagining what snowy-white yankee skin would look
like in the mexican sun. (oops, there i go with another racial
stereotype)

not sure when i can pull it off though, i already have alaska for 11
days vacation, then potential biz trips to brazil, argentina, and
costa rica on my slate this year, but i owe my son a trip down
there......

all is good, kids off in college, a little surf here and there, and
selling some photos - also have at least 1 maybe even 2 gallery
openings in the next 1 to 3 months - no complaints.

i agree with tony. some decent shots, but on that wave, with that long
of a sequence, you could have animated it for better viewing or edited
down the sequence to the critical parts of the ride. oh, and yes
everyones a critic ;-)

Eh senor, It's cool that you're making a vaguely viable commercial go
of it. (Um, you are vaguely viable, right?)

Just don't kill anyone with your bare hands, and you should be fine.

Rock on,

Hey Surfgeo!

Are you going to bring a board to AK? Or will you be inland.

I worked in a salmon cannery on Kodiak Island the summer after college.
When I go back, I'm definitely bringing a board!

are you kidding? i dont surf that cold of water, my pussy feezes
up! ;-)

but nah, this is a wilderness photo adventure trip so i will be loaded
down with photo, backcountry, and fishing gear. so far i am planning
to hike and camp in a few areas on Kenai going after brown bear photos
then hitting some coastal areas for eagles and sea otters and such,
then another 4 or 5 days along the denali highway. i originally
wanted to get floatplaned in somewhere more remote but the budget was
getting whittled down too much to afford that.
