Monday saw me with Emma roby and lily pollard trying to get some filming done down the coast
For their company milkshakes but the waves were terrible but still a fun day but not and
frame of footage shot . But still got some see some baby goats (soon to be very annoying) on Emma cobb’s farm.
Tuesday was the icing on the cake in terms of swell forecasts. They predicted over 6 foot but a cowrie was only about 2-3. So me, Adam Wright and Joel S still went down to cowries.
A couple of bombs went down but nothing real special to report.
After that we sat around ate some food and decided to wait for cowries
to turn on (we hoped) with the grom posse in the car park.
Got a call from the Emma and Lil to go shoot some spots down south with the possibility
of pipe turning on. The first wave we got was very fun but inconsistent and a wave I haven’t shot before
which was cool with a couple of girl grommets having a go as well. Lily defiantly got wave of that session with a sweet barrel.
After the wind turning sour we decided to pack up and head to pipe. not before my car was backed
into by one of the girl grommets (sorry girls I forgot names)
Pipe was blazing with the big wigs turning up. The waves were washing through making it difficult to swim and film the water. As well as that pink jellyfish were landing all over myself and by the end of the water filming session I have a pink jellyfish moustache and beard.
Novy, winny, bp, Toby player, the Morgan brown show, Shaun pyne and Sam Bennett were part of the pro crew.
There was also a mad contingent of surf photogs and filmers with tostie in the boat, ray Collins getting creepy in the bushes.
Along with filmers Chad Waldron and Ryan matic for his ‘fever dream the musical’ project. Ryan claimed to have got some gold on his fisheye HD rig.
A video blog for September should be up in the next couple of days
