Oakley Pro – Keramas

There were too many images to choose from over the course of the Oakley Pro at Keramas. I shot 2000 images on the final day, along with the couple hundred each day before that we came to watch. I’ve to put together some highlights from the whole comp to try and show you what it was like to be there. So much fun, good vibes and a whole lotta water! We had the super moon over the comp which meant king tides which almost washed away the judges hut.

Hope you enjoy,

This is what we saw every day. Barrel after barrel.
