Everett Gauthier Jr local surfing pics on DVD

Everett's DVD
Everett shot a lot if pics this past Sept/Oct. He created a 35 min DVD slide show from many of his photos some have appeared on FB and others you have not seen. Most all the surfers who surfed Burke's Beach those two months are on the disc. if your interested in a DVD, he is selling them for $10.00 . Pretty cheap since he shoots for hours and then sits in front of the PC editing for another few hours. You can see him on the beach or email him if you would like a copy. You also can see his pics on Smugmug too if you like to order a pic or two..Below is his email address and link .. Support our local photographer capturing our surf sessions.

Black Fri. waves

Most people took advantage of the sales at local stores, but Giuseppe and I paddled out and grabbed a few decent rides in the thigh high lumpy waves with light SW winds before the front rolled through.

Justin Quintal vid,,,

Can remember him as a lil tad pole ripping it up on our Hilton Head waves several years ago before he and his family relocated to Jax. The Quintal's ''True OHANA''

Full segment of the Turkey bird..

Jesse had his gopro helmet cam on while he was on his bodyboard . I dropped in behind him so he can look back so I can flip him the BIRD, trying to get the shot. Was kind of funny as he did three spins in the wave as i was cruising with the middle finger salute. Would like to see his video doing spins. So here is the full segment from the below frame grab...Thankful to all my surfing and SUP friends ..

Turkey Waves this morning...

It went from a pretty morning sunrise to a winter looking day with in an hour.. Was still fun with friends. Scott, Perry, Giuseppe and Will Urban catching waves on the Stand Ups..

This weekend SUP waves.

Sunday's waves were a little cleaner and with some fun sets. Was a lot warmer almost summer like which made for great Sunday fun. Jesse was on it all the lefts with his cutback tail slide, Jamie catching long waves, Heather still learning with only one month on the SUP , Eric getting his new PSH 10-0 WAA groove on and I down at the folly getting the sets on the sand bar.
Lots of waves --- lots of fun.

All photo's were taken by Everett Gauthier Jr, He has his smugmug site with a lot of photos. Check it out, http://everettgauthier.smugmug.com/
