Nice shots! I want to ride and shoot Hossegor so badly! Really a magical place.

then you should pack your bags and hop the pond, it's just gonna get really good soon. suckiest peaks are always crowded with water photogs when those spots are on, but more the merrier. it always helps if you bring some talent with you.

Hello 40. I'm really interested in using one of your shots for a personal project i've got going (making my downstairs bathroom into a stand-up barrel - it's the closest I'll ever get to the real thing unfortunately). Would you be interested in selling me a high res digital version of the Teahupoo panoramic barrel shot, or any other panoramic barrel shots you've got ?

hi kenny, sorry for a late answer, i never check these messages so this is a lucky shot. e mail me timojarvinenshots@yahoo.fr, so it'll be easier to talk about your project.

Just had a close look at your work, and although I'm pretty sure that you don't need it pointed out, I wanted to say that you have one of the most impressive portfolio around... Awesome images.(I really do appreciate how many poundings you've suffered over the years to get that good) Thanks for sharing your views.

thanks a lot for nice words. poundings are part of the program, you just can't avoid them. hats off to the surfers who have a go, after all they push us to go deeper and they do get lickings of a lifetime every now and then when they follow our screams to go when it's not always actually advisable.

Nice shots man! All stunning. What equip setup you got?

Flash stuff is with Nikon D200/10.5/SB 800 with Dale Kobetich custom housing, everything else is shot with Nikon D300 with booster/10.5 or 85 1.8 with Dale's custom housing as well. There's also some stuff shot with Nikon D2X with 10.5/85 or 80-200 2.8, with Aquatech housing. But that set up has seen it's peak and after enough leaks has been put on a retirement.

Hey 40, your pictures are amazing and truly talented but when you find yourself in situations like deep in the barrel at Teahupoo how many times do you get worked on the reef? Do you risk the beat down just for the shot? cuz if you do....props to you my friend

you just go with the flow, sometimes you get away with it and others you eat it. surfers are the ones who got it bad, though, when they eat shit sometimes there's no time to prepare for worst. but definitely there are times when you ask for a bitch slap to get a shot. it always helps if you know how the spot behaves, how to escape and so on. but more you push, the sooner you'll get slapped.

Hi, looking for advice.heading to hossegor in two weeks and hoping to get my hands on a second hand board. Can you suggest anywhere that do good deals with a good selection of boards, e.g. do the rental companies sell boards also. Thanks for any help
