Photo Tip Of The Week: Jason Naudé Billabong Lensman Explains How To Shoot Surf In Speed Blur

Jason naude

“When shooting surfing, try not to get stuck in one style like only trying to get crisp clean shots. Sometimes blurry shots can look way more interesting if done correctly. For the shot of Nate Zoller I closed my aperture down to I think like F. 18 and slowed my shutter speed down to something like a tenth of a second and then followed Nate as he rode the wave to keep him in focus but to allow the wave to appear like it was moving.” -Jason Naudé

Camp Shred 2013

The first ever Camp Shred is in the books, with 3,000 frothing friends of the Ca State Parks demoing the latest surf technology. Booths from every master shaper in the surf industry took over the campground overlooking Cardiff Reef, and the waves woke up for anyone to take a shred-stick for a test drive. With no shortage of Pacifico or Bull-Taco, the Transworld Surf x SurfRide event raised much needed support for the parks.
