Brief video taken with my Canon 7D on a spectator boat as we traveled out to the break at the 2010 Mavericks Surf Contest. Unfortunately I had to put the camera down prematurely as I needed both hands to brace myself.
Our captain Dennis from the New Captain Pete had to time the swells to get us there safely. The video does not do justice to the size of the swells that day. While we were unscathed, my stomach was not, despite motion sickness pills. Neither were spectators down at the beach when a exceptionally large wave broke through the seawall and injured several people.
I had intended to do video throughout the competition as well but ended up only doing stills, apparently being seasick quelled my ambition. I'll be better prepared next year.
Here I have some of my Mavericks Surf Contest photos up and will be adding more shortly.
