Here we are, week two. The WSL Hawaiian pro ran to completion, with Wade Carmichael taking the win. Who saw that coming? I was stoked on it, he was shredding throughout the entire event, so congrats Wade!
Floating around the north shore this week was still relatively slow, we saw a few days of some actual waves at pipeline, and a few days of rain. I rolled around Ehukai Beach Park some more, ran into some familiar faces, shot some portraits, and went underwater rock running.

Full on talent convergence. Geoff Rowley, Gilbert Crockett hangin’ as Dane Reynolds runs out for a surf.

I brought a black backdrop with me to shoot some portraits of whoever stops by our house. Here’s Jack Robinson & Tomas Hermes.
