FLORIDA SURF & LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER | SPRING HAS SPRUNG IN THE OLDEST CITY
Spring in the Oldest City is Quite Swell
It's spring and the waves have sprung! The past couple days have been one for the books here in North Florida. Tuesday we had west winds with a buoy reading just over 6 feet at 10 seconds. This translated to pumping surf from sun up to sun down. Wednesday you had to look a little harder to find a good sandbar suited for the diminishing swell, but if you got lucky, the evening session was pretty unreal. Now sit back, grab a drink and enjoy this collection of surf imagery I captured during the finest moments of this past swell here in the Oldest City.
As always, thank you for the support and shoot me an email if you want to purchase any prints!

Gabe Kling put on an absolute clinic out there all morning. This was his first wave and he backed it up with 5 more sequences just as good.
After shooting for about 3 hours it was time to paddle out and get a few myself. I spent most of the afternoon surfing before coming in, grabbing my housing and swimming out to shoot the last few hours of daylight.
Noah Brownell definitely took the show this session packing more tubes then anyone I saw the whole swell. Noah and I nailed what I feel like is the best shot of the whole swell this night and possibly the best fisheye tube shot I have ever captured in Florida. Unfortunately, you wont see it in the blog post. Gotta keep it on ice for a minute!

Wednesday the buoy dropped and it made it a tad harder to find a good sandbar doing its thing. I spent most of the day searching for waves for myself. Finally around sunset after I finished surfing, I grabbed my long lens and found a nice angle to shoot the last bits of the lingering swell.
