Surf Photo Friday – Malia Ward, Chris Ward, and a Surf Photographer’s Second Worst Nightmare

Surf Photo Friday - Malia Ward, Chris Ward, and a Surf Photographer's Second Worst Nightmare After juggling schedules that never seemed to jive, we finally set up a morning to shoot some photos. A quick call to Malia's mom, Jacqueline, to verify we were on and I was into my car and driving north. Upon exiting the freeway, I was feeling that familiar blend of excitement and anticipation that comes on when working with somebody new. Although usually on time, I felt quite proud of myself for arriving several minutes early. However, the feeling vanished with one glance at the back seat of my parked car. Although there are some bad things that can happen when shooting from the water...being run over, getting pinned against the reef, etc., the biggest nightmare equipment-wise is having a water housing flooded with saltwater. I never give flooding much thought though, because SPL water housings are so well-built. On this day, however, I was guilty of the second biggest nightmare--I had left my housing on the couch at home. What would I do? What could I say? Here I am meeting someone for the first time to shoot water shots and I had left a most important piece of equipment an hour away. As my feelings of preparedness gave way to complete embarrassment, Jacqueline and Malia arrived at the beach lot. Taking a "rip the bandage off quickly" approach, I told them of my blunder right after we had exchanged introductions. Although I was feeling like a complete numskull, they showed me nothing but kindness and understanding and we were soon laughing about the mishap. As luck would have it, the tide was way too high for the break which provided ample time to retrieve the water housing. When we met up later in the day, the tide had dropped, the surf was still glassy and Malia was shredding. It's going to be fun watching Malia's development as a surfer. She is absolutely fearless, surfs for hours on end, and works a crowded break with the ease of a seasoned veteran. As this particular session was winding down, Malia's dad, Chris Ward, paddled out and basically turned every wave into a live surf movie. The nightmarish start to the morning had come full-circle and transformed into a dream day complete with sunny skies, clean waves, and new friends.

Surf Photo Friday - Chloe Buckley and the Tiny $500 Wave

Surf Photo Friday – Chloe Buckley & the Tiny Five Hundred Dollar Wave

Surfer girl Chloe Buckley walks across the low tide sand in Oceanside, California. Surf photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Surf Photo Friday - Chloe Buckley & the Tiny Five Hundred Dollar Wave "Chloe, I have a totally random thing to run by you. Mission Fed is having a $500 photo contest where you go somewhere you enjoy in San Diego and have your picture taken while holding their logo. I just printed out and laminated a little sign and was thinking it might be fun to take it into the surf for some water shots." "I'm sooooo down!" As often happens, the moment the ocean caught word of our photo ideas, the surf went flat--dead flat. As the deadline approached, a morning surf check in Oceanside revealed some glassy, almost-rideable ankle slappers. Although we misfired on our first few attempts (pictured below), Chloe and I got in sync for a couple of almost 1-footers and in the end, we scored enough photos that it was actually difficult choosing which image she would submit as her contest entry. A few days later, Mission Fed chose Chloe's photo as the contest-winning entry. She received congratulations from a Mission Fed Senior Vice President, a certificate, and a cool $500 for her tiny, winning wave. Most important to me than winning though was getting the opportunity to shoot with a great friend and an amazing human being. That type of prize is truly priceless.

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.

Kelly Nicely & The Pelican Session - Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine

Surf Photo Friday – Kelly Nicely and the Pelican Session

Pelican feeding frenzy in Oceanside, California. Photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Surf Photo Friday - Kelly Nicely and the Pelican Session When it comes to favorite animals, birds in particular, the choice nearest my heart is the pelican. The awkward bird glides along waves with a grace that's without rival, but when she dives for a meal, she does so with the elegance of a falling sack of potatoes. One morning not long ago while driving up and over the bridge that parallels the San Luis Rey, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw what looked to be a hundred surfers bobbing up and down in the water at South Jetty. As I drove closer I realized just how much I need glasses--there wasn't a single surfer in the lineup, but the break was packed with several hundred pelicans. I didn't have any particular plans to shoot that morning but upon seeing the frenzy in the water, I knew it was time for a swim. The waves were pretty tiny so I called one of my best friends, North Carolina's Kelly Nicely, who I knew owned a beautiful, bright yellow Takayama single fin that would work perfectly in the shin-high peelers. I was curious if the birds would hang out there with us if we paddled out amongst them. Sadly, by the time we got all our gear together, the feeding frenzy had subsided and most of the flock had flown away. Undeterred, Kelly paddled out in front of the remaining pelicans posted up on the jetty and scored a few noserides before we called it a day. I'm not sure if it's the timeless single fin, my favorite birds, or hanging with my good friend, but whatever the reason, this session is one I'll always remember.

Mary Osborne and Gene Cooper with Mary's new Cooperfish singlefin surfboard.Pictured: Gene Cooper and Mary Osborne with "Greeny", Mary's new 9'10" Cooperfish Single Fin. Credit: Mary Osborne Collection By Mary Osborne I have fantasized about having a Cooperfish surfboard from the very beginning. I was about 16 years old when I saw my first Cooperfish longboard up in a surf shop in Santa Barbara. The board I saw was extremely sexy, sleek, shiny, classic and far too expensive for a teenager with only babysitting money. My brothers and a few friends rode Cooperfish boards so I was very familiar with them and always lusted for one through my beginning years of surfing. In fact, I lusted for almost 15 years before I got my first board from Gene. Gene and I would occasionally run into each other out the water, parking lot, or at a surfing event. For years we would always talk about him building me a board, but it wasn't until 2013 when I finally convinced Gene to do it. It all started when I borrowed a friend's Cooperfish out a Rincon one afternoon because I was bored with my current quiver of longboards. I wanted something more classic, heavy and a "looker" - ya know, something people look at and go "Wow!" Rincon was about 3-4 feet, uncrowded with perfect longboard sliders. I was having the time of my life on that borrowed board. I had nose rides for days and the board paddled so fast and easy. Overall, there was just a different feel to this board I borrowed. It felt like magic under my feet. Immediately after my session I called Gene. The conversation went something like this... "Gene, it's Mary. It's come to that time where you need, in fact you must, make me a board. I am in love with this board I just borrowed at Rincon and I must have one just like it in my quiver." Gene laughed and agreed to make me one. The following day, I took that very same board I rode at Rincon into Gene's shaping room. He copied a few things from it while magically blending his special skills to make a new unique board he knew I would love. Luckily for me, Gene was on a deadline for a surfboard show in San Clemente and was already shaping about 4-5 boards for this event, so there was no turning back for him. It was a green light... and soon I was to have a new Cooperfish in my quiver. During the shaping process I was in between my surf travels and was able to sneak in and watch Gene perform his magic. His shaping room was full of classic masterpieces and colorful resins splattered on the floor. The smell of resin was like roses to my nose. His one of kind designs were everywhere and I was frothing to order more. My heart skipped a beat when I saw my sexy new Cooperfish directly in the center of the room. Gene had used a light green tint with a special rice paper inlay for the design. I was in love... Due to the surfboard show, it took about 2 months after the board was completed until I could get my hands on it. My first session was at Rincon and it was a memorable one. The waves were a little bit bigger than expected, actually a lot bigger. A random sneaker Northwest swell filled in the day I took "Greeny" (I named the board) out. It was well overhead with sucking up barrels and a very heavy current. It was actually super challenging for my new 9'10" heavy single fin. The Queen of the Coast was doing her thing while giving me a ride of a lifetime. I managed to take a few waves on the head, went swimming a couple of times, and got slammed on the suck ups when I pearled on the take off. Not really my plan for session one on Greeny. However, once I figured out the Cooper, it was a dream come true. I slid into a couple of inside beauties that were a blast. She rode like a true gem! I can't thank Gene enough for finally making me one of his boards. It is a big honor to have his handcrafted work of art in my quiver. "THANK YOU!!"

Final notes from Chris Grant... While this stretch of California lies dormant for most of the summer months, a couple of small waves occasionally sneak into the various bends in the coastline. I had never officially met Mary Osborne before this session, but smiles and laughs came so easily that it felt as if I was meeting an old friend. Our schedules only jived for a mid-afternoon surf so the lighting was harsh and there was a bit of onshore wind ...none of which mattered because Mary rode the tiny waves with such style, I completely forgot about the quality of the conditions. While in the water Mary introduced me to her open-ocean paddling boyfriend, Brandon, who rips on all types of surfboards as well. If I wouldn't have known better, I would have already thought the two were married because they seem so great together. Fast forward from this summer day to a few weeks ago and they've decided to make it official. Hearty congratulations on your engagement, Mary and Brandon! Stoked for you both!

Surf Photo Friday – Bodyboarding with Hawaii’s Kamalehua Keohokapu

Early morning bodyboard session with Hawaiian Kamalehua Keohokapu. Photo © Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine It seems wholly appropriate in this strangest of seasons to mix it up a bit. One day the water temp is bikini-worthy and a few hours later a fullsuit and booties are necessary. Similarly, the surf itself has proven to have multiple personalities with swell firing in one spot and nonexistent everywhere else. On the day before this I swam out at this spot and it was warm, firing, and empty ...but not very surfable. Later that day as I was reflecting on the morning session, I remembered that my good friend from Hawaii, Kamalehua Keohokapu, used to bodyboard before she picked up longboarding. A few messages back and forth and we made plans to leave our surfboards at home, grab bodyboards, and hit it early before she headed off to the hospital where she works. Although the swell dropped overnight, we were still greeted with glassy peaks and sunny conditions. Laughs, smiles, and barrels ensued and it was a refreshing reminder to me that whatever surfcraft we happen to be riding, there's no better way to start your day than by being in the ocean. Here are a few photos from the session. Barreling left during bodyboard session with Kamalehua Keohokapu.
