….(I couldn’t finish my last reply due to a mental wipeout) In closing, this pic is a good shot. I kinda remember the day being a south swell breaking in front of the old 76 gas station. For Florida standards, it was a nice swell - overhead and glassy. And we keep seeing Frieda Zamba just killing it, getting slotted going backside making the waves look that much better. So you decided it would be cool to get a photo of the 4-time world champ but by the time you made it past the impact zone with the camera, Frieda had caught her last wave in. Nonetheless, you were able to get this water shot and even a couple more. So, Cheeb, who's an expat living on the beach in Costa Rica, will be credited as the photographer. And me, the owner of the camera, will be continue as a kook living in Sanford.

I agree that credit is given when credit is due, My reasoning for a 50/50 split for the photo credit is justifiable when considering I owned the camera, bought the film and even paid the film devlopment - just kidding bro. Seriously, you should be awarded the prestige honor of a MSW online photo credt (and the gift of an all-expense paid 3-week surf trip to Grajagan for this well-deserved honorfor caputuring this shot. Most of overhead sets ccmny in menangt on the had as you made your way ou to the lineup
