I’ve wanted to get some more surfing shots for years, besides off the Folly Beach pier at sunrise.  I read on Facebook that at contest was happening at 8:00 a.m.  Water sports and splashing make for great splashes of light when taking pictures.  Small drawback, Washout at Folly Beach is a “south” facing beach for the most part.  I was looking into the sun from 7:00 a.m. until noon. Sunburn to prove it. Thank goodness for some clouds and little bit of fog early in the morning. Very challenging with changing light all day, but great practice.

The surf was like a washer machine leaving foam all over the beach and the wind was cool. But the surfers were eager to put on a show and do their best for the contest and for fun. Buy some prints or posters if you want.
