Surf’s Up

Following on from my multimedia project handup in December, I bought a used disposable waterproof film camera, and brought it out for the first surf session of 2012. air temperature was around 5 deg C, water temp was 10 deg. C

After about two hours of catching fun waves, I got out of the water, took the camera out of the car, and – mistakenly – left the board and fins on dry land while trying my hand at surf photography.

It was not very easy with tired arms and legs, and having to wind on each frame with 5mm mitts ain’t easy while trying to stay afloat and dodging 5ft breaking waves. Still, we had a blast. Roll on the next swell.

    It was actually quite nice in there. With a 5mm wetsuit, 6mm boots, 5mm gloves, and 3mm fleece lined hood it can get quite toasty! Getting out and dressed was the hardest part!
