US Open of Surf 2021

This was my first time actually getting to photograph professional surfing. Now I don’t mean taking pictures of surfers out in the ocean professional or otherwise being taken with a phone, that I’ve done plenty of times before. No, I mean with an actual camera and enough glass to weigh down a small boat.

This was a perfect opportunity to put the APS-C crop factor of my Canon M6 mark ii to use, with the recently acquired Sigma 70-200mm Sport lens. With an equivalent focal range of 112-320mm this would be a winning combination for shooting the inside sections.

Kanoa Igarashi is seen here blasting back some whitewater spray on the inside after connecting from the outside.
