It’s easy to find a good spot when photographing a surf session and plant yourself there for the entire time. Many times what you get are a lot of great photos, but all of them tend to be very similar in composition.
Yes, you can shoot long lenses and short (still recommended), shoot high and low, but the vantage point remains the same. I like to move around a bit and see what I can get. or me it keeps the day exciting, because I never know what I might find.
Let’s take a recent day at Pipeline for example.
1. I started down the beach at Rocky Point, first setting up a nice line-up shot (above)
2. Then, while still shooting from down the beach, I pulled it in a bit to capture a guy in the barrel.

Sun’s Out! Skip out into the sunshine in festive new flower crowns and head wraps from Cult Gaia. The turbans are a beach hair essential, and we’d rock the flower crowns anywhere under the sun. The only downside? Now that we have everlasting daisy chains we may have to creep out of the outfield and actually play the game.

Did this scenario happen to you? You’re flipping through the May SWELL Catalog and spotted a super fun red, white and blue vest on page 26. But where’s the vest?!
Well too bad, you can’t buy it. But you CAN buy the scarf we used to make it (in about 33 seconds). Our stylist is the Houdini of scarf how-to’s, no biggie. Lucky for you, this style magician is willing to share her tricks. Read on for instructions on how to tie your scarf into a vest (or a belted cover-up/dress)…

Eat me. When talking fruits and veggies, it’s a no brainer. You gotta eat them as much as possible. Don’t like them? Well guess what, you aren’t three any more, so deal with it. It’s the easiest way to 1: get nutrients into your body, 2: fill up in a healthy way, and 3: Eat lower calorie snacks and meals.
When I gained a lot of weight after living in France for a while (what can I say, I indulged) I met with a nutritionist, and in a world where all you hear is don’t eat this, don’t eat that, don’t don’t don’t…he gave me the best advice: eat as much produce as you want. I love to eat. This was great news. Yhatzee.
So, just try and eat some sort of fruit or veggie with every meal (sorry, fried and covered in Ranch dressing does not count), and you’ll notice a difference. Your body will start to crave them, and then it’s smooth sailing from there.
