Surf Videography

I started surfing again a year ago. When I was a kid in Kailua I would always be surfing with my Dad, but when all my friends started skateboarding, I did that. Through skateboarding I started to photograph and film my friends. I loved it, and still to do it when I can.

When I started surfing, I was introduced to a whole new beast. Filming surfers. It’s probably one of the hardest things a videographer can do. You have to keep an eye on the swell, and most importantly keep an eye on the person/people you’re shooting. This may sound easy, but when there’s 20-50 heads out in the water, it’s gets a little more difficult.

Shooting my friends out in the water made me think differently about how I shoot. Framing, timing, and pulling focus! It’s incredibly difficult and now when I watch surf videos/clips, I have a whole new respect for those directors/cinematographers. 

*On a side note, I'm currently working on a music video for my friend/musician, Pres10 (Pres10music.com). Everything is shot, and I'm working on the editing this week. Stay tuned for the video.
