5th Hye Tyde Annual Surf Trip Extravaganza

And the 5th time with fun waves. This was a shortened trip this year.

I was camping in RI last week in anticipation for Hurricane Igor. He took his own sweet time turning on the juice, but with a longboard and the right spot the surfing was a blast.

Day one – show up
Night one – Monsoon rain and knock down wind. I have perfected my campfire building technique. I love sleeping in tents – not.

Day 2 – loads of fun, but this was from the cleanup on the prior night’s storm, not Igor as we had initially thought.

Night 2 – Providence & Johnny Rockets with my darling niece who’s just started college up there. The good thing about 3 days of long surf sessions is you can have a massive burger, fries and share a shake and still come home a couple of pounds lighter!
Day 3 – Saturday – fun city

Day 4 – only time for a morning go, - I had to clear out and head home.DSC00192.JPG

Zaius, Taylor, and Nova bummed about the wind

Again, the surf was fun, but by the time I was out of the water and ready to shoot, the wind was on it, and the photos suffered.

Arriving home and a place which never breaks was working, kind of. More on this later.

Some seriously fun waves.
