Completely feasable. He took off from the top of the lip, which is probably only 3 feet below where he is now. The doubters are looking at it from a perspective of how high he is compared to the bottom of the wave, instead of where he is compared to where he took off. GREAT PIC!!

Pixelated surfer? No one else in the water? Odd fins? No wake or spray from the board? Do the people who troll this site actually understand or even surf at all? Man. Some people are dicks. Great shot mate. Even though i think its a hollogram projected from a UFO thats hovering just out of shot! x

Woah, he's got one white fin and two black. It CAN'T be real!!! Nah I'm backing it. No trail in air because of offshores, no trail in water because of a shallow bottom turn/he's been up there for so long it's been sucked up the face.

WTF, same old argument about a sick shot! Who the hell photoshops their photos (other than a little lighting correction) anyway? And a pro photog to boot, maybe some kook eager for abit of fame, but not someone making a living from their craft. Sick photo of a sick, highly difficult aerial. Nice one! You pixel-pirates need to get in the water more

Here the problem I have, to set up you need a bottom turn and then a carve up the face of the wave, were are fin marks on the face of the wave ???. Another point is that the light source and shadows of the board and the background do match up, just looks a bit to clinical the picture. The fin looks suspect but the guy could have two black fins and one white ??, or it is just the reflection of the light off the fin??.

I stand corrected sirs, on closer inspection I see the rail saver and the bottom of the leash was confusing me.

*Right Click* *Save Pic As* find file and open in photo viewer of choice...zoom in. The guy is a different resolution than that of the wave or back drop. No?! camera zoom issue...right?

Oriel surfer's avatar

Oriel surfer Oct 24, 2011 Rating: 2

I did that..resolution looks OK to me..in fact if you do zoom in you can see the faint trail of the leash going back into the spray.

If its for real...then its unreal 5+ ... However you may think I'm a dick for suggesting that its photo-shopped, but just look at the photo. Anyone would be sceptical. Really hope it isn't.

This is clearly photoshoped, you would be able to see where he hit the lip and the wake from his board.....

if it is 'clearly' photoshopped, yet you didn't take the photo. How is it so clear? 100% real. I shoot with Cooper almost every day, it's only a matter of time that we get stand out images like this one.

nicetime Oct 24, 2011 Rating: -1

Not to critique, cause i'm not critical. but the pixel on the guy in the air is pixelier than the rest of the picture...two different resolutions?! plus no one else is in the water on a day like that? Great pic though...

He's gone so high the wake has already been sucked up the face and the lip bashing unrecognizable.
