Danielle Burt: Chapter Two
In the summer of 2004 Danielle Burt was involved in a motorcycle accident that left her with collapsed lungs, dozens of broken bones, six weeks in a coma, and ultimately, the loss of her right leg. After a lengthy healing and recovery process, Danielle's heart turned toward the ocean. After gathering some spare parts to create a functional "surf leg," she caught her first waves and was immediately hooked on surfing. Danielle Burt: Chapter Two celebrates an incredibly positive human being, a great surfer, and a hero to virtually everyone she meets.

Today it's cold and rainy in Southern California, the type of day that lends itself perfectly to reflecting back to the warm days of summer. Of all the days I shot during that three month span, this session stands out from the rest. With a hungry pack of male world tour competitors scrounging for every wave possible, one girl held her ground and scored at least a dozen high-quality lefts that afternoon. Her name is Lulu Erkeneff.
You may or may not know Lulu but due to her homebreak being the photo-friendly Salt Creek, she's quite possibly...
Whomp-O-Rama Encuentro con Christine Brailsford - Fotos de Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com
Aun no me puedo recordar donde o cuando fue que por primera vez escuche acerca de los eventos Whop-O-Rama, pero si tuviera que adivinar probablemente diría que fue a través del "PAIPO debote", Glenn Sakamoto de la revista Liquid Salt Magazine. En los 70' recuerdo que tratamos de utilizar nuestras sandalias como "Handplanes" para correr las olas, fuera de esta experiencia no he tenido la oportunidad de experimentar esta modalidad de "Handplanes". Realmente no tengo idea de que esperar de este evento.

I can't recall where or when I first learned of the Whomp-O-Rama event but if I had to guess, it was probably through paipo-devotee, Glenn Sakamoto of Liquid Salt Magazine. I haven't had experience with handplanes other than the rubber flip-flops we used back in the 1970's for the same purpose. I truly didn't know what to expect at the event.
Upon arriving at Beacons Beach in Leucadia, I discovered a crew of fun-loving individuals of all ages sharing waves, trying each other's rides, and enjoying a session...

We know what you're thinking. Mid-May is certainly not summer ...yet a trip to the beach earlier today sure felt like summer, so much so that we've decided to kick off Jettygirl's annual summer photo feature a bit early this year. The water's warming up, the sun's out and there's no May Gray to be seen. We'll be adding regularly to this photo feature over the next four months so check back often. We hope that all of you have a wonderful summer and for those of you on the globe who are entering winter shortly, we hope these images will keep you inspired as you're pulling on your 4/3 fullsuits. Enjoy!
