p.1 #1 · A few from Mavericks.


Waves did not live up to the hype this year. Still managed to get a few decent ones.

Jacob:

At least the weather was nice ;-)

Couple of questions:

Where did you shoot from?

Are these cropped (and by how much)?

Thanks.

I like the first & fourth.

Waves definitely don't look as big as was forecast but the weather looks spectacular!

Shal, so a 400 is almost a must, then (I remember you saying last year that most shooters were using 300's)? These are solid frames, you must be worn out from a full day of rockin and shooting.

I watched the streaming vid on the Mavs site- looked like a beautiful day out there, but like you said, the waves were a little over-hyped.

I counted around 40 boats out there on average, but here's a screen shot of your ride. Thanks for sharing...

Thanks. I had the 300mm f2.8 with me too . I put it on for a while but then went back to the 400mm. Some were shooting 70-200mm. I can't imagine they got too much. ( I could be wrong). We timed some of the sets. There were some that were 42 min appart.

Nice images! Hawaii's been pretty dead this year too. Looked promising earlier on, but then it just kind of switched off...

Thanks. Yes they did. There were no spectators on the cliff and none on the beach. I understand the beach given the experience in 2010 with that rogue wave.

The cliffs are unstable, and not really safe to climb. At a previous Maverick's contest a woman was seriously injured by a large rock dislodged from the cliffs. As I recall, her injuries were described as life threatening in the newspaper reports of the incident.

That's true for the cliff but the bluff was empty this year too. In 2010 it was packed.

To keep people off of the beach, and cliffs, the entire area was closed to non-residents.

Because there are only a few places to access the site, it takes less manpower (money) to close off the entire site (beach, cliffs, and bluffs), than to keep people within the site from going where you don't want them.
