Surfing Terry's Cove in Orange Beach, Alabama Feb. 2013
My brother Chuck catching a sweet little nugget. Used Adobe After Effects to get slow motion effect. (My first try!). Still needs work.
Filmed with GoPro at 30fps. Should have been filming in 60fps.

Wasn't the best surf day, but it worked so I'm stoked. It could use a little back-lean and maybe a little lift. I'll work on it. Two safety catches in case the piping or camera come lose.
There weren't many waves and it was cold, but the sunset was beautiful and I had some good friends to surf with!
I worked some different angles with the goPro. I found that on the back of my 9'6" that the camera tended to be underwater. That's cause I'm heavy. I moved it back to the nose but facing forward. Pleasant surprise that turned out to be.
