p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Surfing - Santa Cruz Cold Water Clasic


I found out there was going to be some big surf last weekend so I planned an outing to Santa Cruz. When I got there I was surprised to find the 2009 O'Neill Cold Water Classic in full swing. Man, those guys can really surf! Quite incredible.

Not the best conditions for picture-taking as the sun was way to the left of where I was set up and the surfers were - for the most part - going away from the sun. I tried to get "sun in the face" shots when I could, but there was a lot of backlight.

Here's a series of what I consider the better shots. CC appreciated.

10 And last, but not least, the only surfer I was able to remember is local hero Kieran Horn (who won the heat this image was taken)

Nice Dave.

I was there 9:00 - 11:00. That low sun was difficult. I stumbled onto the event and really enjoyed seeing top drawer surfing.

Thanks Des. Rags, I was there from sunrise (hoped to get a sunrise shot but it didn't happen. ) until about 10:00. I was about 1/2 way between the contest HQ and the lighthouse. It's pretty amazing what these guys can do with a stick of foam!

Wow, those are great photos. Definitely going to have to make it out to Santa Cruz sometime soon and shoot some surfing instead of mountain biking.

you captured the action well - it is just a shame about the light

Gavin I haven't figured out yet if there's any season where the light is good for Steamer Lane. I'll keep working at it, though. Sure is a pretty spot to spend some time, in any event.
