Summers with WSA

July 28, 2016

I can't get enough of young kids enjoying sailing!  I can't get enough of being outside on a sunny day.  While I missed the first two weeks of Junior Sailing, which started abruptly the Monday after school finished for most of these kids, I was able to get my act in order for Week 3 of the Wickford Junior Sailing program.  

The program has a new structure this year, offering one week classes alongside two week or four week sessions for the beginners.  It's a new opportunity for the kids with busy schedules to get as much time on the water as possible before they're off on family vacations, soccer camps, or just something else to fit into the all-too-short summer season!  (While this new trend is greatly welcomed and accommodating to so many families, and I must embrace the opportunity to introduce sailing to so many new young people, I want to share this food for thought on the importance of boredom)

Here are some of my favorite shots from Week 3, but more will be uploaded to the gallery as the summer marches on!

Warm Getaways
Warm Getaways

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season.  Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.  We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F.  But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

Board Portraits // Experiments
Board Portraits // Experiments

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.

Snowy Surf Sessions
Snowy Surf Sessions

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.
