Rather than author many pages of surf/photo sessions, here is one thread where I'll try and publish a surf image a day. Hope you like!

Glass Cylinder, Sandy Beach, 5/26/13. Went to shoot with low expectations. Surf has been pounding at Sandys but the swell is gone and the winds are up. Still managed to snag a few nuggets, including this glassy beaut. Shameless excessive Photoshop enhancements make this photo art.

Nice Neal. I've had one of your Pipe photos as screen saver for the past few months. Thanks.

never thought Sandy's would be accused of having a yellow streak in it. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Thanks all.

David, Big Rights, 5/18/13. Back to the recent south swell, Saturday morning was really glassy; so much so that you can plainly see the LM logo in the water's reflection. Didn't realize at the time, but the surfer is a friend. This was actually pretty trusting because this stranger (at the time) stabbed a bottom turn right in front of my face. Funny too because once we recognized each other, we couldn't line up for another shot.

That is a really great shot Sponge! I love the reflection and you really get a feeling for the speed from the spray off of the back of his board <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/applause2.gif" alt="" />

Spray does look a bit blurry even at 1/1250 sec shutter speed.

Score an Alana Blanchard shot like that and it would net you a 5 figure buy out <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bowdown1.gif" alt="" />

Aloha Neal Do you take requests? I've always wondered what your cameras and cases look like????
would you consider taking a 'self portrait' in a mirror?
Some time ago you posted several pictures and one was a surreal underwater taken shot of the spinning tube....
we loved it so much, someone started a thread to acknowledge a thanks for showing us how sexual the tube looks underwater..... I've searched for that those threads,no luck. I enjoyed out your website till I forgot what I was looking for....If you have some idea of the picture I'm talking about, do you sell them?
LOL or could you just post it again?
