Trick: Pillar Ollie

Temp: Hot n’ wet

When Surf Expo was finally winding down, the general consensus was time to ride. Of course it took some doing to round up a crew, get the winch, find the spot, etc. Eventually Ben, Andrew Pastura, Justin Forrest, Dave Hanson and myself headed out to nearby Deer Creek to shoot. If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Ben will amaze you every time you see him ride and this was no exception. Although he couldn’t ride away from the front big over the protruding ledge (mostly because another crew showed up to shred, so we cut things a bit short) he ollied it like it was on flat water. That, coupled with my brand new, full frame fisheye lens, made for a pretty neat photo.
