Location: Bylery Toe Jam Winch Jam, Orlando Watersports Complex

Trick: Frontboard shuv

Temp: Mid 70s

This year’s Toe Jam winch jam set up proved not only to be a challenge for the riders, but for the plethora of photographers as well. Finding a good angle was hard enough, and then if you were trying to shoot everything going down, well it was impossible. For the finals, I was lucky enough to post up in the high reach for a bird’s eye view of the pool gap. Then the only challenge was getting people to not stand in the way of my flash and quit bumping it and messing up the connections. But the flash gods cooperated, as did Ben, and things just came together for this shot.
