Surf Photo Friday – A Special Surf Session with Ashley Lloyd Thompson, Julie Cox, Alex Thompson & Sheri Crummer

Several months ago I received a call from my good friend, Julie Cox, that she was heading up to meet Ashley Lloyd for a surf. Caught by surprise that another one of my favorite human beings was in Southern California, I grabbed my camera gear and jumped on the northbound side of the 5 Freeway. Ashley was down here with her husband, Alex, visiting with some members of Alex’s family. Legendary personality, Sheri Crummer, also dropped by for some waves and it was an honor to meet her for the first time.

Not knowing how the surf was, we were pleasantly surprised to find fun, offshore conditions up and down the beach. It was a blessing to have such a diverse crew of styles …Julie’s timeless elegance, Ashley’s switchstance cutbacks, Alex and Chris’ classically drawn lines, and Sheri’s youthful exuberance were on display for three hours of California wintertime goodness.

Thank you for dropping by for another installment of Surf Photo Friday. Have a great weekend everyone …and as always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl.
