FLORIDA SURF PHOTOGRAPHER | OLDEST CITY LOG JAM

This past Saturday was the Oldest City Log Jam put on by The Surf Station, Chris Tincher & many more. After being put off 1 week due to weather and surf conditions we could not have been more stoked on the conditions we were given this past Saturday. I woke up at 5:00am and headed to the beach to photograph Chris and a few of the other guys before the event started. Upon walking up to the beach we were blessed with waist high glassy peelers that looked just dreamy for a log. I quickly suited up and ran down to swim out. Enjoy this series of images from my swim with a super rad group up Florida longboarders.

At the end of the blog post there is a link to a gallery where there are more full sequences and images that you can purchase prints, digital files of etc.

And... this was the second & third waves I saw. Needless to say, it was going to be a perfect morning for the  Oldest City Log Jam

Every time I go out for a swim there is that one moment that always sticks out to me. This day, it was this moment above. There is so much emotion in this image that reflects the moment it happened.
