“For me, I didn’t plan to be this wave photographer. I went out there ’cause I love the shorebreak and I wanted to get a shot for the house. ..People…are shooting pipe and trying to get the cover shot for the next magazine, and that’s cool, but I’d rather go out in heavy shorebreak with nobody out and capture some heavy four-lipped monster throwing over with the sand sucking up. I have such a good time.”
