March 2011 Surfer Mag cover!!

This months cover of Surfer Magazine is a photo I shot of Alex Gray at Log Cabins this past winter in Hawaii!!!  The day started off slow at Rocky Point, than around 11the wind came on strong onshore.  My girlfriend and I went on a bikeride to foodland to get lunch and decided to check the waves on the way back to Rocky Point.  The wind had switched and it was pumping!  6-8 feet with a couple bigger sets and because of the on and off again rains, the water was a deep blue.  I was going back and forth between shooting film and digital.  This wave that Alex caught was one of the most perfect waves I have ever seen break there and luckily he rode it with ease.  Below is the original photo, the cover, and a video of the wave...Check it out!  Thanks to the guys at Surfer for running my image, Alex for catching the wave, and Jenna for hanging it out on the beach while it rained that afternoon!!

Todd do you ever find it odd that the hawaii issue has a California surfer on the cover ?

I don't find it to be odd Tim. Hawaiians get covers of the mag in the middle of the year. I feel that when the magazine chooses the cover, they decide it based upon what looks best and how it correlates with what is inside the magazine. Some may think differently though..
