Surf Photographer Clark Little on Getting the Perfect Shot

Clark Little started shooting the waves around his home in Hawaii with a point and shoot camera encased in a water proof guard that he bought off online. In no time he became one of the best photographers of his kind mostly because he takes crazy risks to get the perfect shot. This video shows you just how far he will go to catch the perfect wave.
@nokcha I once had a friend tell me, "never let fear overcome stoke." Basically, don't let your fear of what could happen diminish what could be an incredible experience. You can get hurt doing a number of things, but I'd rather die having a blast than die in fear! Btw, I love this guys photographs. I remember seeing them around awhile back
I've always wanted to try surfing, but what he described at the end of the video is exactly what I'm too scared of! Getting trapped under wave after wave must be terrifying!
He clearly loves what he's doing!
I've always wondered how people captured photos like these, thanks for the share!
@Nisfit @nokcha Yeah he's definitely okay with taking risks! I love that he started off just doing this as a little hobby and then discovered how talented he is!

Surf and Skate Part II
Surfing and skating go hand in hand. Skateboarding was originally known as street surfing. Over the years both sports have influenced each other. I've put together a few videos, well two cards worth, that showcase a part of the relationship. There is something here for everyone who longboards, shortboards or surfs. Watch each video and pay close attention to how they ride and what they are saying. Yeah, some repeat what another is saying or doing but you will find something new in each. Jay Adams, Larry Bertlemann and Buttons all speak about their influences and show in their riding or surfing how each influences the other. Check out Bertlemann's "Go Pro"from the 70's lol! There's instructions on pumping and carving from surfers and a history lesson on skateboard carving from Paul Riechele III. I threw in some carver boards just to show how surfing and skating have truly come together and to showcase a different style of board and trucks. If you love longboarding whether it's downhill, freeride, freestyle, cruising, carving, slalom or hitting the pools or ditches you can perfect your style by taking cues from surfers and skaters who surf. Speaking of style, these videos also spend a lot of time urging you to develop your own. Style is what makes your riding different from everyone else and is how many riders become sponsored. Style essentially comes from the soul of the surfer or skater. It can take years to truly master your own style and make it look steezy. The key is to learn all you can from every aspect of the sport, mold it into what you like the most and do it in a way that makes it your own. Oh and you'll see some excellent kick flips with 46 inch boards. Save those for your "regular"skater friends to watch and learn lol! Be yourself, and enjoy the ride.
