Sea Otter 2010

I spent last weekend in Monterey, California shooting the Sea Otter Classic. The weather was perfect this year, no rain, not to dusty. It was probably the best conditions for otter that I have ever seen. I shot the Dual Slalom and downhill events. The courses at sea otter are short, and they never really change, so it is difficult to get fresh shots. I ended up shooting berms on both courses, the one I shot on the DH course was one I have been eyeing for the last couple years. I was shooting tight, and following the rider/blurring the background, which can be tough especially with flashes.. I was stoked on how the shots turned out though. Here is one of many, this is George Stephenson (Yeti/Fox) shredding the berm-

On Monday the post office session when off in Aptos, with Semenuk basically inventing tricks... I decided to shoot some video of the jam and it ended up being featured on
