I was just wondering, what is a good, cheap camera to start out with? I wasnt to make movies of me and my friends bodyboarding. It needs to be able to be watertight at least a little deep/ Most of the shots will be shorebreak. Any suggestions?

good and cheap and watertight might be difficult to find. supposedly there is a new entry level Canon Rebel coming out soon (if not already) that shoots 15 megapixels (3-4 fps) and video in an SLR camera. it would not be waterproof, but you could always purchase a water housing ($$$$$$). hopefully this helps. entry level SLR's will run you $400 and up.

why would aliens fly around in modified saucers? Surely they would use custom built space ships.

kyle, where in LT is this? what break?

Kyle Knight's avatar

Kyle Knight Apr 12, 2009 Rating: 1

i think theres been a little confusion. i wasn't asked to keep this particular break a secret, but i have had some GENERAL requests (via MSW) to simple not NAME breaks (whether hidden or the most popular spots around). obviously i'm providing the general area (eg. cow bay, lawrencetown) and i have to agree that that is suffice. as for appreciating the captures. everyone HAS been super supportive of the posts and VERY grateful for any pics that have landed in their hands. i hope this clears it up.

is it that obvious mr. knight? yeah, I do get a little worked up when some people say silly things. I am actually more refering to the surfer or surfers that requested you keep this a secret. exactly how many surfers per square mile are there in nova scotia? You want to see a lot of surfers, go to southern california or come to the gold coast or sydney. surfers as far as the eye can see. next time a surfer in nova scots says to you keep this a secret, I would suggest(I am not telling you what to do, for the record) you tell him you are free to shoot whatever you please and secondly if the surfer is lucky, his pic will be published. dont worry, nova scotia wont be invaded by surfers from around the world anytime soon. If I should be so lucky to get to nova scotia, it will be to see the overall bueaty of the place, not to go surfing. I actually checked your pic out bcs it was a great shot also for the record. The surfer in the pic should be greatful you were there to capture it. if he has a copy, he can look back at it when he is old and placid and say *I fricken killed it!*

thanks Mantis. pretty worked up over this are ya mate? i could care less who surfs where or when (but this ain't my stompin' grounds). its there in plain view. nothing wrong with a little exploration and discovery. makes it even sweeter. theres surf in Indonesia?

Kyle Knight Apr 10, 2009 Rating: 0

hey mate, i'd rather keep the peace. its not about secrets or bali cancellation protection. all the breaks are there to see and fuck if they're secret it won't mean shit to people anyhow. how does that reflect poorly on me. i definitely haven't recieved any comments asking if i could please post MORE of the break locations (nor would i bet you see these requests down-under). i could care less who surfs where or when. but its definitely no skin off my back to not disclose. part of the spirit is exploration anyways. cheers.

and one other thing, rest assured Mr. Knight, surfers around the world ain't cancelling their next trip to indo for this wave mate. Im sure there are plenty of waves for all that live in that neck of the woods. don't respect self centred and selfish requests. It reflects poorly on you.

hey smitty, don't sweat it bru, let the gay boys keep their precious little secret. The ocean and all it has to offer (excluding the needless killing of certain species)should be for all of us to enjoy and this selfish attitude of keeping secrets is lame. It aint that flash hot of a wave anyhow.

As hard as it might be to believe, there IS more than one good surfer in Canada. Raph is just one of the many... and he doesn't hit the East Coast very often.
