Florida Surf & Life Style Photographer | Cody Coleman Vs. Hurricane Joaquin

Below I have compiled what I believe are my best images from the ever so long swell that Hurricane Joaquin Delivered our way the past few weeks. I can't remember the last time we had a swell linger for suchan extended period of time. With not much in the way of waves the past 4 months I jumped at the opportunity to shoot some solid surf and was on it just about every day.

From morning swims starting at 5:30 am to swimming until its pitch black dark I put in some serious swimming time the past few weeks.

Enjoy.

On September 28th I met up early with Casey Piester to shoot some shore break water images & snagged this one as I was walking down the beach.

Jody Davis again. This was the last wave I photographed during this particular swim. Boy was it a good one to end it on.

This is one of my favorite images from the whole swell. I'm my eyes it sums it up perfectly. Stoked Danial Calloway snagged this left just before that beautiful light disappeared behind the clouds.
