Glitz, glam…camp fires and cleaning up cigarette butts. It was all in a day’s work for the SWELL team at the 2010 Holiday photoshoot at San Clemente’s San Onofre State Beach. Making appearances are the ever-so-popular Brit, Kristina, Bill “the dude” Ee, the white windowless CoreShops van, and cute babies. We’d like to thank Poseidon for dishing out zero waves and chilled Bud heavy for the appearance of (brand) team and local riders: Dane Ward (Billabong), Jamie Parkhurst, Tyler Mumma (Insight), Ford Archbold (RVCA), Jake Davis (O’Neill), and Jason Miller.Thank you for visiting the Swell blog.

Why Jeremy, why!?
Watch this Sterling Spencer vid on Surfing Mag.
Before working at SWELL I sold everything I owned and moved to New Zealand for 6 months.
This is some of the footage I brought back…
Music by local band Voom

As the youngest winner ever, 19yr old Morgan Maassen stunned the audience and judges with his radical vision of the surf world. He also took home the “People’s Choice” award from the audience pool full of photog favorites like Rob Machado, Taj Burrow, Kolohe Andino, and Jamie O’Brien.
Picture pioneer Aaron Chang took the stage to introduce the talented finalist whose artistic approaches ranged from progressive surfing specialist Billy Watts of San Diego, to Brooks Institute student Corey Wilson, and Outter Banks warrior Matt Lusk. SWELL happily sponsored the 5K grant to encourage this young talent to raise the bar of surf photography that “Flame” so passionately pursued.
Morgan’s credited his family for making world-travel a priority in his childhood.
Congratulation again to all the finalists.
