East Matunuck Kitesurfing

East Matunuck Kitesurfing

March 09, 2012

Breezy conditions this week meant for some windsurfing and kitesurfing activity out on the water, which I hadn't seen for some time.  Of course the warm 65 degrees didn't hurt at all!  I headed to East Matunuck State Beach for the first time since I was about 10 years old, with memories of waves full of seaweed and ruthless rip currents.  There was a group of about 5 or 6 windsurfers out of Deep Hole in Matunuck, and at East Matunuck there was about the same number of kitesurfers enjoying the wind and waves.  It's been a while since I saw kites out, and had only shot them twice before, but I had a great time sitting out in the warm sun catching shots as they came right next to the beach.  Here's a few takes from the day!

I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year.  My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards.  He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them.  I decided to do board portraits.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather.  And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall!  On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Some days I just don't feel like swimming.  Some days I don't feel like shooting with a 7lb telephoto setup on the beach.  Those days are perfectly suited for drone shots, should the wind be accommodating enough.  

I've only had a couple drone flights this winter, one during a sunny but cold morning at the beach, and a second during a slightly windier day at Point Judith lighthouse. It's always a refreshing perspective!
