Surf | 4-25-13

Last night at one of my favourite places in the world (I realize I say that a lot – this one for real though)

Spring

Spring is here and there’s been some nice weather down on the Seacoast. The skatepark is dry, there’s been some trace of surf the last few days and the sunsets have been gorgeous. I think it actually hit 60 the other day but it’s still Winter up in Vermont. Stowe is reporting 7-12″ in the last 48 hours! It’s going to be an awesome spring up there for sure – the resorts close down pretty soon but it’ll be prime for spring touring. There are deals galore if you’re looking for a touring setup, this is the time of year to shop.

On another note, I started a new website for my own personal work – check it out at www.ryandenning.com

Cinco De Mayo

Happy Cinco De Mayo and thank you to Las Olas Taqueria for the free t-shirt today! Once the tide dropped out a little bit (2pm-ish) the waves got fun, the sun even peaked out. All of the boys were at the wall, beautiful offshore winds all day long — endless smiles all around. Finally had a go with the new lens and I’m pretty happy overall, it’s a hard piece of equipment to keep steady and that will be my biggest challenge. I snapped a few random shots throughout the day – take a look and keep your eyes peeled for Spring Verses | Part 9.


Spring Verses | Part 5 – April 17, 2011

I haven’t seen the ocean churning like it was this morning in a long time, we’ve had a massive snow year without having any significant winter swells. It has been a pretty busy spring as far as surfing goes, a swell each week for the last month or two. The buoys were reading 15ft+ this morning and it showed at the beach, a massive washing machine all over. Finally a few guys decided to give it a go at the Rocks and across the way at Linkys. Broken boards, barrels and beach weather make for an awesome day.  I’m not going to touch on the crowded roads or the insane parking jobs that I saw today because I know it’s going to get worse as the summer goes on. I will mention that it’s important to be safe, if you have any doubts about going into big surf on any particular day…think twice and choose another day, there will always be waves NEXT spring!

Spring Verses | Part 4 & Incoming Swell

Well it’s been a roller coaster week, we did see some waves but it turned out to be disorganized and mushy at practically every spot in NH. MSW came through again with accurate models but the swell reaching the beach just wasn’t favorable, hopefully this upcoming swell (which is looking mighty fine for the north country) will fair a little bit better for the Northeast. In hope of getting some good surf I put together Part 4 of the Spring Verses series, mostly to clear out my folder so it’s nice an empty for some real surf footage.
I also made an attempt at using the new ND filter with a super wide angle lens – needless to say it doesn’t really work. Here is what I came up with, somewhere in Maine…

Side Note: Key phrase of the week is “petting the cat”….I would tell you what it was but I don’t even know – stay tuned cuz I’m gonna make Lockwood explain this shit to the camera.


ND Filter | Sunrise – April 14, 2011

(Updated 10:30pm)
After the sunrise I got some shots at the red carpet a.k.a. shit shacks.

I purchased a new photography tool called a Reverse Grad ND filter, it’s a pretty simple concept but I wouldn’t really be able to explain it very well. Basically the graduated tint in the filter allows me to place the filter along the horizon and block out some of the light from the sun, allowing the foreground to maintain a proper exposure. A lot of sunrise and direct sun photography will be blown out or over exposed in the foreground because of the sunlight. Here are my first attempts at using it:

Surf | November 13, 2010

Chyea, solid today.

My favorite.


Surf | 11-6-10

Woke up this morning absurdly early because my sleep schedule is mangled, I could hear the ocean from my house and that usually means it’s pretty well raging. Stevie O’Hara from Pioneers was absolutely shredding, the majority of these photos are of him.

Edited to add that Kelly Slater has also won his 10th world title today. No one else in sports history has won 10 world titles. Congratulations Kelly!


Surf | 11-5-10

Well today started at 6am with a drive up to Killington. I drove up expecting to see some type of white precip. and was disappointed to see all of the snow they had gotten the day before was now slush. Conditions were warm and variable with soft bumps and a little drizzle, skied from 9-11:30 and headed back to the Seacoast. Well it turns out the end of the week Coastal storm brought better waves than snowfall. Looks like it should stick around through Monday so get out there.


Igor

8-13-10 — 8:00pm UPDATE:

Well things are starting to come together. The models are showing that the storm is going to make a pass by the northeast. This should give us long period swell starting on Thursday/Friday and fading out on Wednesday. THAT’S ALMOST A WEEK OF SWELL! Excuse my excitement, I’m stoked to be surfing without the massive amount of tourists. I wanna be able to park at my favorite spot without people parked on the grass and in every illegal place possible. Igor is a Category 4 Hurricane at the moment but is quickly strengthening, another important tidbit is that it’s moving very slowly, that is why the swell is forecasted to stick around so long. We still aren’t clear on wave sizes, don’t go getting your 7″6′ pin all waxed up ’cause as of now it ain’t gonna get that big but we will see some head high+ and it will be much less crowded than the last 5 months. I will also add that we could see swell periods around 17 seconds which means you’ll have to hit up some Google Earth or find your secret spot because it’ll be closin’ the beaches out. A long point or offshore reef will be your best bet. Much more information will be available tomorrow into Wednesday. CHEERS!

8-12-10
Could be some solid swell towards the end of the week. Igor has developed into a Hurricane and will continue to head northwest up the coast. More accurate information will be available tomorrow and in coming days as the storm gets closer. Another tropical storm has developed right behind Igor, Tropical Depression Twelve should have enough room behind Igor to develop on it’s own.


Tropics

9-2-10 UPDATE
The tropics are really starting to crank, we’ve had storm after storm developing off of Africa and we’ll see these next three active in the North Atlantic over the weekend. Check out this forecast for Earl, Fiona and Gaston. Bring it!
