Jackelope! Always heard of never seen... well at least 2 people saw and one caught it and owned it! Nicely done! Hate to have something like that be, 'the one that got away'!

Largest wave ever ridden or photographed in New England? The unique thing is Aloha-bro Garret Mcnuggetmara is not dropping in on him like he did everybody else this day! Never thought Hawaiians would be as obnoxious as Nantasketers!

It might be. Largest I've ever photographed in any case. Yeah I've got a few shots of Garret out there riding his tank. I'm glad we didn't have kayakers as well.
