Children riding home from school in Aserradores, Nicaragua
The Ride (Bronze Award) // Nicaragua on 07.06.2011
There's been a bit going on this last week. We've had some waves. I hit the skate park with a few buddies. The groms have competed. I scored 4 bronzes in the International Loupe Awards!  
The first photo today is from Nicaragua back in June and hadn't been seen by the public until winning this award. The other three photos are from the past couple of years. "Breaks From Above" was made in the formative months of my photography career...there's hope for us all!
Something that we have no hope of is....catching waves this week. It's gonna be small in Perth. Less than 1 foot for the working week. Pull out the logs and the fish or head south for waves around the 2 foot mark. One thing is for sure. It's gonna be hot. High 20's to mid 30's. Time for a swim.
Cheers // Coops

I had never considered hiring a photographer to go with me on a surf trip or even for a day at the beach.  In my mind this is only something the pro's would do. I kept asking my wife, Zoe, to come down and take a few photos of me on some waves. I
