Samuel J

Many will know him as surf instructor sam, the dolphin whisperer or the surf school Hippie. Good friend and fellow coach Mr. Samuel J is off again.
Bringing to the school, humour, stretching and fruit tea, Sam once again has spent another season to take his tally to 8 fine years at SSC.
Over the past week we managed to find time to film his new music video for 'riding the storm'.
This still came from some of the footage. sunshine, wind, rain and early sunsets all helped challenge the filming but the edit's looking good so far.
Sam is off the Brazil for another winter this time to support his childhood hero Ben Harper. This is huge for Sam and I only wish I could be there to witness it.
thanks again for another season brother and look forward to May to start it all over again.

Pondering my have selections of daily blogs this morning and my screen fills with an Image of James in Salinas by jj wessell on the quality peoples blog.

If the sun had been shining this morning I might even have had more pics of JP. Not the case.

Paz is back

Its been a while since I've been in the sea with this over sized grommet. James arrived back from California a few days ago and I've been gagging to shoot again. A busy surf school, video shoot and changeable surf has hindered activities.
Maybe next week? I leave you with this shot we got earlier this year. Maybe my favourite of Paz.

Yesterday was cold. So cold that as we walked up the steps at Gwithian I nearly cried and Oran announced to the group that he "was upset". Quote of the day by far.

Regardless the boys shredded again and it just goes to show that pushing each other as a group is the best way to improve their skills.
Connor, relatively new to the club and stand up surfing is fast becoming a stand out. He's competitive, however he shows grit and self discipline which I'm excited about. Isaac, giving us the shaka, is a naughty grom with heaps of talent and oozes charisma. A bunch for the future for sure.
Cheers for tuning in again. Ill be on it now I'm home and with small waves and offshore winds ill be in the sea again to snap some water stuff.

Soooper 8

So the last time I filed a reel through my Nizo was nearly a year ago. The increasing cost and time it takes to get the film back was over shadowed by my new Canon 7D and its superb video quality. Yet a few days ago at an auction in Penzance, I spotted the cleanest, best looked after pair of cine cameras. 
Quids in (literally £2) I scored both and theres no stopping me. 
Film on its way and a nice little trip to France next week, expect a short edit soon.
