Shooting with a wide-angle lens in the water is my favorite type of photography. Because I'm shooting with my Tokina 10-17mm lens set at 12mm manual focus, the riders have to get up close and personal. This morning I saw's, John Ashley, cruising around with his point and shoot. I was stoked when he sent over his photos that he shot from the pier. They're perfect to show the persceptive of the wide-angle lens and the distance between the camera and rider.

If you see my head bobbing in the water, get a close as you can for the shot! I've learned how to avoid riders and waves on my bodyboard. I can get out of your way quicker than a french poodle can wag it's tail.

I'll have all the photos up on my photo site,, later this afternoon. Cheers. And thanks JA!
