Do you know this girl? – Photog leaves his slides at her home!

Years ago photographer Jack English left some folders of slides at CJ’s home when she was living in San Clemente, California (originally she is from Texas). He is trying to track her down to confirm this and at best see if she still has them or at worst she got rid of them.

Any help is appreciated…

Cardiff Kook Strikes on Valentine’s Weekend

Well this morning while we were doing are normal surf check we did our daily look over at the Cardiff Kook and must admit it brought a smile to our face. We just had to laugh at this one. Why the community could not of made a statue of the local legend and one of the best surfers in the world Rob Macado is beyond us. A statue of Rob pulling into a Pipe tube doing a soul arch, now that would make for a quality statue.

Well we have the Cardiff Kook and we will have to live with it for however long and we will continue to bring you up to date photos as he continues getting dressed for any occasion that comes his way.

Want to be a Surfing Photographer…

How do those surf photographers get those amazing tight action shots where you see can the surfer’s expression clearly on the wave.
Well if you have $8,800.00 to pay for a Canon 600mm or how about a Sigma 200-500mm that goes for $25,999.00 then you can sit on the beach and sip on your latte firing away. If your less fortunate and don’t have one of those big lenses I guess you have to go where the action is. As you can see below this french photographer (shot in Hossegor, France) chose to do just that, go into the surf front row with flash on camera and of course no water housing and scream to the surfers where to do there moves. Were not sure how his shots turned out, but boy was he risking his gear in this shot.
