The Waves it is, and Surf Photography

This man has the right idea of catching the waves , Clark Little, you know of him, if not read the article written by me on the link it's pretty good stuff, this guy goes to his office , which is at the North Shore ,Pipeline area to the Surfing community, and takes pictures of the waves, not just any snapshot,by no means, this fellow, has it together , His work is to be displayed at Washington in The Museum mentioned in the article . I did not get a time frame, but if you live in the area I would go and see his fine photographs. He is a Pro Surfer as well and about my age in his 40s. I have been making plans to hit Pipeline myself in March I think, if all works out and whenI return I will share the beautiful Photographs of the area and some great surf shots I am sure. I have nevr seen the North Shore on the main Island and looking forward to going. I have thought about moving to Hawaii and I am going to check it out. I love the Ocean and I like the tropics , it's a different world in Hawaii, I still feel like I'm in a different foreign country when I am there. Anyway just an update to this site and I willl keep it alive as long as I can. I miss my friends surfing Mustang Island as well, and North Padre Island, Texas. I shall soon make a pass that way. Take Care..

Surfing Photography and My Island Away from Home

Living in hell , come here to Midland, Texas and get a piece of your oil well, so you can fly out of here on the weekends, is what I say!! I Love the water, the Ocean, most of all, I love to hear the waves hit the beach all day long, and its my downfall also, and If you people don't start clicking my ads , Its over with here, I have made quite a bit of money lately writing articles for a living and I am ready to shoot film on the Island, In Padre Island, Texas, The Funny thing is at where my website is and the locals know this, there is no interest in this film being made, no phone calls, not shit.
So What should I spend a dime at a place that does not give a crap if a film is made or not, I dont know, the Copyright laws are so that your possibly waiting for me to screw up and shoot one of you with film so you can sue my ass. Well Not going to happen , believe it, I am shooting there and have been , the film has been working and no one knows, yet except a few that signed a model release like I asked, Hell Port A Surf Company would not even let me into the damn forum, well that bothers me none, I have some of their surfers also on film with their permission. SO the film will be made despite the bullshit of no one but about 14 of you, that give a crap. I love it down there and I like to rock out, I like the surfer's I am working with and they will be happy . when I shoot, and the film looks damn great so far, If You want to get involved let me know, My number is listed.. peace out..Christopher Hyer
