      WSL Big Wave Contest 2018 Nazare Portugal

      WSL Big Wave Contest 2018 Nazare Portugal - Azhiaziam

      Another week in one of my favorite country's, Portugal! Coming from a Portuguese / Hawaiian mother I have always  been enchanted with my Grandfathers homeland... I first visited Portugal as a sponsored surfer in 1998 with some of my best central coast homies, Dustin Ray and Gabe Gazzolla along with some New Yorkers from the UNSOUND Crew...We had a blast, scored epic waves, stayed in ancient castles and ate like kings! I have been hooked ever since, even making two family trips there last year to visit friends and enjoy the easy lifestyle. 

      This year I went for a different reason, I went to document one of the largest forcasted swells ever seen to hit the region. Unfortunately a slight Westerly angle to the swell decimated any chance of the swell becoming historic.

      Fortunately, I did decide to shoot the WSL event that took place a couple of days before the big swell was supposed to hit. And I am so glad I did. The waves were good size and PERFECT! I stood there all day in awe of what was going down with all of the surfers and rescue ski's going 100% all Day. These are just a few shots from the day...

      Kelly Slater's Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California. FLOWLINE! - Azhiaziam
      Over 100 miles from the beach, the city of Lemoore, California was never on any surfer's radar... not until eleven-time World Surfing Champion Kelly Slater opened up his now legendary KS WAVECO Surf Ranch in Lemoore and started pumping out footage of perfect waves, almost breaking the internet a little over 2 years ago. Now it seems that everyone wants a piece of the action and some are even willing to pay upwards of $10,000 to be a VIP and Surf Kelly's concoction!

      Drone Foiling!!!
      Once on foil there's almost no drag and the hexacopter uses a lot less energy. It would be 10X more fun to control the drone from the tow rope.
