For the windsurfing shots, bag a load of solid ones from the land first, then get out there and swim for the gold, the water shots. Conditions in the sets were pretty big and there was a lot of water moving around. The current moves off the point fast. I was kicking hard for hours just to stay in place. At the switch of the tide, the current would reverse and push into the pit up at the point. So I was swimming even harder to avoid the impact zone, all whilst trying to line up for the shot. This was not an easy shoot, but very rewarding and so worth it. As if that wasn’t good enough, on the surf days, every spot Josh took us to was firing. I was getting more than my fill of surf shots too.
In the end we got two bites at the cherry with good wind and waves on two of the days and I was super happy with shooting good friends and capturing the insane action. I think there’s something about Cape Verde that will now forever pull me back there. What an adventure! I hope you enjoy the shots!
