Expectations were high on this adventure to Puerto Rico, Lex (Gypsea Love Blog) and I had plans to shoot as many photos as possible while still making time to surf. I didn’t have a great start to the trip, some camera gear I had rented for the Gypsea Love shoot and also to shoot photos of my boyfriend surfing didn’t come in time for the trip (thanks to a terrible UPS store that closed 30 minutes early). Then the first day of the trip my water housing flooded and was broken for the rest of the trip. On top of that everyone took turns getting a form of the flu the whole trip. So needless to say I was thinking this trip was cursed.
Even though the trip didn’t start out great it ended up being one of the most fun trips I had been on in a while. We had a great crew of people including myself, my boyfriend blake, his two friends Matt and Farmer, and Lex and her friend Shaun. Shaun is a great photographer and captured some great images of everyone surfing and some amazing behind the scenes images from our shoot. Check out his blog post about the trip here www.surfandadventure.com/blog.
I am so stoked to have had the pleasure of working with Lex once again and capturing some pretty awesome photos for her and also to have met Shaun, who I could tell was such a kind spirit the second I met him. We got to surf beautiful head high plus waves everyday and enjoy some nice mahi pinchos and the always tasty local beer Medalla! It’s always great to get to go on a surf trip with great people and great waves!
