A long time resident of Okinawa and total ripper decided to put on a show in front of the camera for me as we scored some off shore reef waves that you needed to take a boat to. This was the first time I have ever been to this outside reef surfing on Okinawa and the surf was pretty good. It was worth all the efforts to get out there.
I thought this was my friend Alex surfing this wave but it was actually a guy named Ryan shredding the gnar on this one. They look very similar at this distance.
This is photo taken by the most underrated surf photographer I have ever met on Okinawa. His name is Seth Rice and his instagram handle is: happy_haole
I thought Seth was a pretty good surfer and he was a true shred dog for his time living on Okinawa. He will be thoroughly missed as he drys out in the desert of New Mexico. The good news is that Seth is knuckling down and pursuing a career in photography!
Rob and I hit the skateboard park and stretched our old bones at the Ginowan Skateboard park. We always have a goal of trying to shoot some cool tricks while we are there. It pushes us to try and be creative and try and do a few tricks that we can be satisfied with. Here is what we came up with.
