Jaws 2013 Openning Day Paddle In Highlights

Jaws Peahi Maui Hawaii Opening Day November 13 2013.  Huge Paddle In Sessions set a new precedent in surfing history as Shane Dorian, Mark Healey, Ian Walsh, Ahanu Tson-dru, Marcio Freire, Greg Long and a few promising young guns like DK Walsh re-defined what is possible in big wave paddle in surfing.  Ahanu Tson-dru’s XXL wipeout is at the end of the clip and I kept the camera rolling the entire time with natural sound.  You can see him pop up in the video after what seems like an eternity and jump on a jet ski.  His inflatable vest was still intact as was his will to succeed despite playing tag with the reef on one of the heaviest wipeouts of the year.

Haleakala Timelapse

Shooting timelapse of the sunrise at the top of Mt. Haleakala was pretty awesome.  Being part of a new documentary featuring the trials and tribulations of big wave surfer Ahanu Tsondru is an honor beyond compare.  Ahanu (seen in the video) suffered a traumatic brain injury on a huge wipeout at Jaws and experienced amnesia, loss of balance, and nausea for years before being properly diagnosed.
