Well I just kicked my last final in the nuts, so I'm officially on summer! Figured a good way to kick this thing off is with a little POD action. As many of you know, Broken Body Photography is the little bit of skimboard documenting I've been doing here in Santa Cruz for the past two years during the time my body has been mangled. (In that time I've put a bone through my achilles tendon [which has taken two surgeries so far to get right], crushed a bone in my other foot, blown out the cartilage in both my knees, and got a concussion so bad I couldn't even walk for two weeks.) After all that it seems like I'd have time to get some better pictures but...
In any case, it's been a blessing to be able to get out in the sand, meet people, and see them get stoked on pictures.
For those that will ask, NO these pictures won't be taken the same day I post them. Obviously if I got pictures from somewhere that's firing it at the time I'm not going to go ratting it to the whole internet. Also I don't get good pictures every day. Not even close.
One rule before we get started: NO BITCHING! Seems like everybody in Santa Cruz has sand in their vagina about somebody else, but Skim Online isn't the place to take that out. Go to the beach and work it out.
Anyway, on with the pics. COME AWN!
I'll put up a few you may have seen before to start this thing off. Maybe some new ones too.
Chris Alreck, Monterey: Probably the best wave I've ever seen.
Danny Kerfeld, 26:
Ben K..., 26:
Cameron Carothers, 26: You'll probably be seeing a lot of him, definitely who I shoot with most.
