FLORIDA SURF & ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHER | OLDEST CITY LOG JAM 2017

Cody Coleman Photography | Oldest City Log Jam | June 3rd, 2017 | St. Augustine Florida

Well... the second annual Oldest City Log Jam was straight jammin, if you were lucky enough to be there 3 weeks ago ago. With the sun just poking over the horizon & over 20 frothing longboarders hitting the lineup it was a photographers wonderland. Below is collection of images that takes you through the warm ups and contest heats throughout the day. Special thanks to Chris Tincher for putting so much effort into making such a rad & unique contest that is like no other.

Ryan Conklin was dominating the heat. He by far had the best wave of contest in my opinion which will be coming up soon... And to make things better, He had the best wave of the contest last year too. Both being very similar.
