Mar 26: Lobitos Part 2

Day 4:
Holggers (pronounced 'ol-wear', or 'or-well', or 'hol-ware', depending on who's talking) teaches a surf class to the local kids, while the volunteers (Alex, in black) assist.

In a little drill, the kids run into the ocean, then back, before Holggers counts to 10.

Some of the kids are just beginning. They need help catching waves. A generous push from behind gets them started. Holggers encourages their efforts.

The older kids, some of last year's beginners, make it look easy.


Day 5:
My first photo class, a 1-on-1 with Henry. I set him up and let him experiment. In the beginning he is a bit shy. He quickly gains confidence and starts asking questions. We discuss all the buttons and controls, lighting (sun angle), and a bit about capturing the critical moment. Towards the end, we discuss shutter speed and focus.
Here are a couple of Henry's first shots. (The waves were non-existent this day...)


Later, we set up on the pier for some filming. I capture the crew discussing the shot.

Day 6:
Spikeball!
Forrest brought a new game to the continent. It's great fun, but a little dangerous. Injuries abound, particularly when the game intensity picks up.


I get out for another surf session with the locals.

Day 7:
Surfing and photographing.
I make it up for a short ride. (Thanks to Thomas for getting the shot.)

Then, I get back in the water to shoot some myself.

The underwater housing provides some cool angles. This duck dive is pretty sweet.
