A couple of days with no wind here in Maui give me the opportunity of a surfing related post.
Here's chapter 7 of the Kazuma saga.
And here's are a few photos that I took yesterday. Still comparing Canon and Sony. This time I had my buddy Chico (a good photographer... check that amazing bottom turn shot on KP's blog) taking photos with the Canon and yet the photos were pretty disappointing. So the conclusion is that that lens it came with is either bad or a bad "copy". It's going back.
Here's Chico's best shots (the second one is Lalo getting a little cover up).
Here's my best shot with the Canon: blurred and overexposed.
Now look at my best shots with the Sony. You got to be kidding me! Look at the sharpness, look at the colors, look at the... oh well, that's not the camera!
Average file size of these photos: 300k.
And check the zoom. This is Lanes from The Point at Hookipa!
The Pipeline Masters is on. Here the live webcast.
PS. Looks like the wind just turned Kona at Kanaha... got to go sail!

Well, the Kona was pretty light, which is not a problem for me, but there were too many surfers out. I caught a few with T.E. and then switched to surfing. I surfed already this morning and my arms were kind of useless, but with the offshore wind the waves were so beautiful I just HAD to paddle out...
I had my GoPro with me and took a few shots.
Kelly hanging five. Every time I see her I always have the same atrocius dilemma: does she surf or look better? Trust me, it's not an easy one...
This one will give you a better idea of her gracious silhouette.
Alex enjoys yet another left.
A couple of shortboarders were killing it. Kind of glassy, uh?
