Australia, 1970?s. The Kelly brothers, Andy and Jimmy, have one great passion: riding big waves. As kids, their mother escaped from Sydney to Margaret River, a sleepy coastal town with some of the world’s most challenging and dangerous waves. For the next 12 years, the boys perfected their surfing skills, always searching for the perfect ride. They rethink board design, craft homemade wetsuits and sell their merchandise out of their van, but after they get mixed up with a local drug dealer, will they see everything they’ve built fall apart?

How To Shoot a Point of View (POV) Barrel Photo 1. Use a fisheye lens and high shutter speed on a camera with a burst rate of at least 6 frames/sec 2. When a hollow wave approaches, position yourself close to the pocket like you’re about to bodysurf 3. As The lip throws, reach your camera up as high as possible in the top corner pocket of the wave 4. Keep your wrist stiff and camera as level as possible. An even horizon line makes the image pop with that realistic POV you are aiming for. And don’t forget a camera leash 5. Take a lot of photos/beatings. No matter how many images you take withthis POV nevers gets old
“With the popularity of waterproof cameras like GoPro, these days you see a lot of people swimming out into the lineup and shooting empty waves and shore break. I love trying to get these type of images looking out of the barrel to give viewers that surfers point of view. For me, these moments happen while I am swimming around in the impact zone as I am lining up with a surfer waiting for a set” -Bryce Lowe White, Photo Editor & Video Producer | SURFER MAGAZINE
