I’m in Hawaii working on a film with Keith Malloy. The film is going to be called Come Hell or High Water and is entirely focused on bodysurfing. Since I’ve arrived just over a week ago I’ve been spending lots of time in the water seeking inspiration. Here are a few underwater shots from today’s wake up swim.

Yesterday we spent the day at Pipeline filming the annual bodysurfing contest put on by the local Lifeguards. The day was timeless with ideal conditions and perfect waves.

Unknown contestant on a great one.

Aloha.
