J-Bay May

Up in Jefferys Bay AGAIN!

This time I was there to catch the RVCA junior contest and catch up and hang with the Smith family and the local crew
Sadly we did not that epic early season swell I had hoped for but we still got fun shootable waves that gave us some good, productive shooting opportunities.

While I was up there, I got word that my Girls Of J-Bay feature (click link for screen shots) featuring the Smith sisters, had made print (in the USA) which we were all super stoked about as a lot of work went into this.

Another very enjoyable time in J-Bay  which saw lots of visits to Nina’s, the Smith family restaurant, which is AMAZING and a must visit if in J-Bay (see Nina’s on trip advisor for more) and i came back with some decent images. Stoked!
