if you had a twenty foot fishing rod you could just tape a camera to the end stand on the beach and hey presto no head full of sand and crabs

You could get a well strained sqirl to run along the pole and press it at the crucial moment ;)

Haha, I'd never heard the term "Bredren" till the other day. My friend Matt said it. We had a little conversation about it because I didn't know what he was talking about. Then it popped up a couple days later right here. I thought it might be him.

Thanks for the awesome comments! There were some solid 5 and 6 foot sets coming in. So I guess around 10 -11 foot faces? I was so excited about the first swell of the season, I hit three sessions the first day. Body board, shoot, body board. The next morning I headed back to the shore break because I saw the sun peaking out. It just happened to come out from behind those clouds for a few shots. This was one. I thought it looked so dramatic. My feet had blisters from the day before so I taped them, this didn't work, so I took the fins off. It was right on the shore pretty much so I just planted and shot. What a thrill it was almost getting sucked over on some of the bombs. Turns out, you lose a lot of thrust without fins. haha. I had to rescue a woman the day before. She decided that this looked like a fun place to swim out with no fins on. As soon as she swam out, a solid 6 foot set came. She went over the falls on it! She was just a little bit shooken up. I grabbed her hand and ducked a couple with her and then helped her get to shore where she quickly ran up the sand hill. Yew!
