The Boat Playground

The Boat Playground

          It seems that we really got a new surf spot in town , the boat ran aground and it seems that will not float in the near future . To the outsiders I do recommend caution , Local surfers don't like so many people in their peak , show respect and keep the rules are essential , I think outsiders should stay in Shizunami or Katahama beach close to the surf shops . This post is full of body board photos , what makes me feel really happy . The highlights of the day were Mr.Shibata a japanese professional body boarder and the Local and professional surfer ken Higuchi . Check it out , ALOHA .

The Boat

The Boat - Ken Higuchi

             During the Typhoon season we gain a new surf spot in town , next to a stranded ship inside the bay . Already existed a powerful beach break overthere , but with the boat I believe  the wave began to break more in the out side , also in conditions of unfavorable winds the boat holds the wind so even in tough conditions the wave is surfable . The Hightlights go to the Pro Surfer ken Higuchi  and  the local surfers , enjoy it , ALOHA .

The Last Swell

Iwata Beach Break - Typhoon #21

            Here are the photos from the last swell that hit the Shizuoka's Coast . My bet was in Iwata in a powerful beach break dominated by Brazilian surfers , what makes me feel at home . Last year I broke a rib on this beach , after being trapped in the concrete by the waves , so it's not good place to do mistakes like I did  , if you do it for sure you will pay the price .
             It's getting cold already , time to set up the winter accessories and face the cold , Aloha .

Ue Misaki Omaezaki

           This post is about photography , more precisely it's about some tests with new lenses that I purchased recently . I used 3 different lenses ( 14mm , 135mm and a 70-200mm ) in the same camera , my Nikon D800e . I liked the result , especially if I consider that I have not used flash and always photographed with iso between 5000 and 6400.
            About the Matsuri is was fun like every year , beer , people happy  , one celebration that passes from generation to generation, keeping the beautiful culture of this interesting country always renewed and strong , BANZAI .
