Its been a sick summer, but there’s still plenty of sizzle left!
From a recent Knack lifestyle shoot :
Yep thats for sure, it was an insane weekend! I can barely walk after swimming around all Sunday, beating rips and dodging blueys….time of my life! Floating around in the soup with the planets best surfers, in your own backyard, you ain’t going to better that!
I thought ahead and hired a 200m port from the Aquatech crew down the Gong. It was a challenge to shoot with; focus flying all over the shop, and water drops I don’t usually have to worry about too much when shooting with a dome port. The best fun Ive had in years though! Bondi really turned the taps on and delivered some sizable chunks for the boys to play with.
Check some of my results here.
