Bokeh Surfing on the Isle of Wight by Jason Swain.

After a very long time with hardly any decent surfing at all, during the summer months here on the Isle of Wight, (a choice i made through a combination of rubbish blown-out waves out west, and being too busy to be bothered with the rubbish waves, or have the necessary time and dedication to seek out the sheltered spots on the island during those windy days). Suddenly surfing is right back at the top of my agenda again, with some smallish but clean groundswell for about 5 out of the last 6 days and offshore winds for a lot of that. I lost a lot of surf fitness during those long weeks away from it, but i think the paddling muscles and sense of balance might just be returning now, along with the back-ache and sore-ribs that seem to always turn up after too much exertion.

So here’s one more surfing photo from the recent session at Freshwater Bay, when for about a ten minute period the light got really special, and i was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time with my camera.

Shot using the Sigma 50-500mm on a Canon 7d. You can view the whole gallery of surf photos here if you like…
