I just looked at a new big wave feature on surfline and am wondering. Why are practically all big wave shots (teahupoo, jaws, mavericks, etc) shot from a side-on close up angle? Most of the time the pictures are from a boat in the channel but change it up a little, pull back show more prespective, sit farther away, I am very bored with big wave pictures and movies and usually don't look at them not for lack of surfing but for lack of filming. Does anyone in photography or whatever notice it too?
