Healey goes left

What is the left like at Mavericks?

Really heavy [laughs]. I went to Mavericks on this trip with that in mind—to just really focus on the left, and watch it and try to get some good ones. I think a lot of it has to do with how the water was moving in there and it’s just a really, really violent wave. You really have to pick your battles and commit if you want to get a good one.

Healey is a freak of nature..He goes left at Waimea, left at Mavericks, and can hold his breath longer than the average human being..You can read about the lefts he rode at Mavericks last week in this web gallery we made for Surfer...’s-mavericks-lefts/

Beautiful Monsters

On a last minute swell chase to Half Moon Bay we drove into one of the biggest and cleanest days of the year..The boys charged and here's a web gallery of some of the images from the day..We saved the best for the mag!

inspiration 2

Chris Orwig.  Santa Barbara train tracks..2008

Sometimes all you need for a bit of inspirtation is to look back on old images and think about the day that you took them.  This image of friend and teacher of photography and life Chris Orwig was shot while he was setting up a portrait of Joe Curren for his new book.  Chris was kind enough to bring me a long to watch him do his thing and help out.  My goal was to be sure the type 55 polaroids didn't get run over by the train and keeping the lightmeter handy.Needless to say a train came and blew them all away, but we found them!..If you get a chance, take a look at his site and see some of the work he's created.  One of my biggest inspirations in the photo world and world of life.
