Large swell, many shots.

Wednesday evening at about 7pm the swell really started to fill in. That is where my last weekend began. Head high sets started pumping in, filling my dreams that evening of the waves to come.

Thursday morning, I woke up early and ran down to find Oak St breaking further out than I had ever seen it before. I knew it was about to be a great time.

A view of Laguna's main breaks. Shot from somewhere near Rock Pile.

Porter Hogan. Rock Pile.

These photos are all from Thursday. I decided that I was going to surf through this swell and try to get some time in bigger waves. I'm so glad that I did. The short period of time where I did shoot was so fun! I got some shots that I'm amped on.. check them out.

Laguna is gorgeous.

Amazing!!! never get sick of this!

All action shots are of Porter Hogan. He had a bit of fun in those few hours... Epic.

The shore breaks in Laguna can get gnarly! wow. This last photo is pretty intense. The barrel is so thick! Notice the surfer that decided it was a good idea to ditch his board... I wonder if he later thought that was a good idea? I hate it when people do that. Keep that thing close so it doesn't kill others, and so that you can actually learn how to dive with it! jeez..

It was a beautiful weekend. There are still plenty of waves going around. So first thing in the morning, I'm gunna go get some more!

See ya out there.

The waves were once again pumping today!

I didn't shoot much, and I'm not sorry. I've been surfing my tail off! These waves are way to good to be passed up. Surfed Dmj's this morning, the conditions were perfect. Over head sets are kinda scary to wavestorm though. The Soul Surfing crew and I went down there this morning for a lesson, but it was way to big. I didn't want to loose anyone.. Soul Surfed instead.

Came back to laguna just to find fun nuggets every where. it was peaky and sizable up here also. Paddled out to find brando in the line up, amped on that! I finished the day right before low tide. Grabbed a few of the best waves and called it a good day.

Just a little bit ago shot these... beautiful evening.

I love this place. Can never get sick of the sun sets, waves, just the beauty of being in and around the ocean.. it's been life changing. I'm so blessed!! fo real. Thanks God for the hook-up.

peace out on this evening.


Time Travel through an awesome winter.

Can't wait for full parts.

That's swell.

At Main beach in Laguna. Late Wed. evening a decent swell started to fill in! These have been some of the best waves I have ever seen! I tried to slow down yesterday and shoot with some intention.. I'm amped on these. Waves are beautiful, and no lie, I'm a rookie when it comes to shooting waves, but I think these are working.

This is Porter. OW? He was jumping off his board when I shot this... but I don't know if it worked out how he wanted it to... haha. Good times.

Standing up about to crush.


Scary Foam Balls!! My favorite from the day.

Awesome! I'm amped, because I'm about to go shoot some more!
See ya down there.
