Surf Photo Friday – Prue Jeffries on a Donald Takayama Quad

Surf Photo Friday featuring Prue Jeffries on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine Surf Photo Friday - Prue Jeffries on a Donald Takayama Quad In my experience it's best to whisper the words "photo shoot" when making plans with a surfer. Speaking the phrase out loud seems to be an open invitation for onshore winds, fog, and extreme tides to join the party. When you roll up to the beach bright and early and discover those unwanted guests have already set up shop, you're faced with two choices---shine it and be bummed all day or go for a surf despite the less-than-optimal conditions. We always opt for the latter. Agreeing to meet at a local beach break in Encinitas, Prue Jeffries and I were greeted with exactly the type of conditions that make you question why you got out of bed. This day would have been a win-win regardless of whether we scored epic waves or not though, because my Australian friend is one of my favorite people in the world. If you're ever lucky enough to strike up a conversation with Prue, you're in for a treat as she's super smart, well-read, and can have a multi-layered discussion on virtually any topic. Of all the surfers I've worked with over the years, meeting up with her has caused me more sunburns than I can count due to our 3-hour, post-surf, parking lot talks. A beautiful soul, an ultra-stylish goofyfoot, and a great friend...who better to showcase on Surf Photo Friday than Prue Jeffries, shown below riding one of her cherished Donald Takayama quads.

Amee Donohoe – Single Wave Thursday. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing.

Single Wave Thursday featuring Amee Donohoe on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. One ride, no music, just surfing. Amee Donohoe - Single Wave Thursday. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing. One of the most underrated surfers I've ever met is Australia's Amee Donohoe. Intelligent, hilarious, and truly one of a kind. This is the last wave I ever saw her surf before she left the tour. A magic, spray-painted, red board under the feet of an uber-talented human being---it doesn't get any better. If I may take a slight diversion today... as you all well know, the Roxy Pro Gold Coast ended a few days ago and announcers, media types, and social media outlets rightfully lit up with praise of the women's performances. While the current crew of World Tour surfers are taking surfing to the next level, my hope is that we never forget those who have come before. Without the benefits of modern equipment, air awareness training, instantaneous video feedback, cameras following their every move, and social media chatter of every type, the surfers of the past pushed the envelope of what was possible then and laid the foundation of what's possible now. The surfers of today, talented as they may be, are not the starting point but simply the next step in the rich fabric of surfing's history. Let's heartily applaud the present, but in equal portions let's respect and appreciate the past. Thank you for stopping by for another installment of Single Wave Thursday. As always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl. None of this would be possible without you, our dear readers. ) Film: Chris Grant | Sound: Audio provided by abcopen at freesound.org * There's no HD on this one but to get the best quality, click the little icon to the right of the clock on the YouTube player (you must hit the play arrow first to see the icons) and select 480p.
