The OBX in and out

Was not a good surf week in the OBX. Well at least not where we stayed this year. It has been nothing but shore break. After almost a week of waiting for a better swell and waves I gave up and dropped into a few right up on the beach. Most of them were about like this with maybe a ride or two a little longer. At least I wasn't shut out but wish there had been better surf because the water was pretty nice. Win some lose some.

Whales In the Line Up

Saw 4 or more whales on dawn patrol at Montera. Only managed to get this short video of one or two before suiting up. We paddled out to just about where they were but we didn't see any while we were surfing. When we got out we saw a few about 1/4 mile to the south.

Longboard? If it's electric I'm in!

Got an electric skateboard. Only down side is that it's a longboard. I don't really know how to skate a longboard. Here you can see me giving it a go. Video shot by a friend at work, Navjit Gill. Thanks Gill!

O.B. 2013-01-20

Was watching the Mavericks 2012/13 surf contest online and it was a bit boring. Lots of 20min lulls and such and the waves though big seemed a bit mush. I took a look out the back window at O.B. and it was not at all mushy or boring. So I climbed up on the roof and shot some video for about 30-40min and here is what I got.

Rainbow Wave

1st day in the Outer Banks the surf is really small so we rented some floaty 8'4"s and paddled out. Part way through the session my brother-in-law, Todd, pointed out a double rainbow behind us. I was all, "What does it mean?!"

Linda happened to see it too while sitting on the deck of the beach house we are staying in and took a few pictures. you cant see the full or double part of the rainbow because it was to big for the camera.

This was my double rainbow ride for the pot of gold. As I rode past Todd I shouted "It's my double rainbow wave. What does it mean?!"

Day 1 in the OBX was great even if it was small.

More 3D footage

Be sure to go to click on the video and go to YouTube to see it in stereo 3D.

Here I am surfing at Kelly Ave in HMB. It was small and kind of fun.

You can see me drop in on a friend, Tyson, near the end. And the last three shots are of Ed who has pics and stuff in other posts.

Oh, and I made the music a while back and though it would work out okay for this video. Seems to sync up pretty well though I probably could have made some better edits. But even that wouldn't have help my lack of skills or ugly mug being front and center in 3D -:]

3D GoPro Testing

Testing out my new 3D GoPro setup. This is actually the 2nd time I've taken it out but only my first post. Will try and get some more shots up at some point. Unfortunately both times I took the camera out waves were not so good and the sky was pretty gray. Testing out some re-timing here as well. Gets a bit swimy in the super slow motion bit. Eh, kind of fun any way.

Here is a still from the video

And here is a bit of a photo edit of the same section to level out the image. Mostly filled in the sky and the surfboard to cover up the gap left from rotating the image.
