Teaser: Tyler Smith Surfing Mavericks

On February 13, 2010 some of the world’s biggest waves hit Half Moon Bay. I shot well over 1200 images and have narrowed it down to a few dozen selects. A fairly interesting story is nearly finished regarding the day’s events. Without exaggeration, it involves working on 3 hours of sleep, broken egos, monster opportunities, and 6 hours of bobbing for apples in 50 foot swells. I’ll announce where the images will land and/or post all of it here. Teaser image below.
