for the Mavericks Invitational surf contest saw a beautiful sunny day, big surf and a low tide last Friday.
While surfers, spectators and the media mingled on Mavericks beach, about 20 surfers were on the break beneath a helicopter filming the action for the movie .
Mavericks is a challenge to photograph, whether you are on the crumbling bluffs or being soaked on a rocking boat. Most of these pictures were taken from the bluff where I squeezed in amongst the giant lenses of the elite filmmakers. Always a great experience.
Pictures of the people on the beach and the ceremony are in Part 2 tomorrow.
Any help with the names of folks in these pictures is greatly appreciated.
