5th January 2013 Surfing Porthmeor

Perfect day for Good surf and Sunshine prevailed as we headed into St Ives and pulled up on the front of Porthmeor…
No time to lose I grabbed some camera’s and headed down onto the beach and set up Mid beach to capture both ends.
There was some amazing surfing going on albeit it got a bit closey at low tide, for those who made it into the pits there were some amazing barrels to be had like this one..05-01-13_NIK0160

It’s more difficult these days being a dad all over again so I only had a couple of hours to grab over 300 images to sift through last night.. and the results are in the gallery – Please Click the Link below :-

4th January Surfing Gwithian

A bit overcast and Mizzly today but some good surf rolling into Godrevy and Gwithian.
Wasn’t sure what i’d find or even if it would be worthwhile shooting in this poor light but we headed up to Gwithian and found quite a few out enjoying the waves…
As it turned out the only bad thing about today was the poor light which made capturing the fast action damn near impossible, but I upped the ISO and risked the heavy grain noise and took what I could…
The nice thing was it was low tide too which meant my little Jasmyn could enjoy running around free on the beach while i worked :)

It was Berts time today to shine whacking a lovely air off the end of a good ride so we jumped on that one for our pick of the day….
The rest of the images are in the Gallery on the website so please go along and take a look.

Surfing Perranuthnoe

Great Start to the year with some South Coast Surf pumping in.
We headed over to Perranuthnoe figuring it would probably be the quietest spot… NOT SO the place was rammed with people, fortunately we got straight into the car park and i wandered off down the beach to check iy out..
It was fairly good surf but the sun was directly out front causing an awful lot of glare, but nontheless it was the first day of 2013 and here we were with surf and a touch of sun..0101-12
