santa cruz! steamer lane. one of the best surf spots in the world. it was amazing to be able to photograph these guys. this first photo is showing you how you get out there. there is no beach. just jagged rocks that you have to jump off of to get in the water. many surfers die here because of the rocks, the sharks, the waves. the ocean commands respect. not for the faint of heart.
the rules (of course there are many others that are unspoken):
nothing makes me happier than to see the girls out there with the boys...giving them a run for their money!!! :)
