Cheyne doing a little "Blue Steel" for Body Glove in Japan.
Tina, Cheyne, and Tetsuo all get ready for their first session on Niijima, an island near Tokyo. Beautiful.
I think this one is Magnusson's "Magnum" look.
Cheyne gives Tina a few pointers before she gives surfing a try. I think it involved, "Paddle, stand up, and ride the wave."
Here, Cheyne has already paddled, stood up, and is now riding the wave.
Usually longboarding, Japanese rider, Tetsuo, cruises down the line on something a little shorter for the quick steep waves on Niijima.
Cheyne showing off a little for Tina.
This was a crazy wave because Cheyne actually made this elevator drop straight down onto practically dry sand. It's probably when he broke his fin... and later the nose of his board.
Making good use of a closeout.
Tina had fun and absolutely charged all day. Were pretty sure she's hooked!
Taking it all in and probably taking some notes while I (camera guy, Scott) am now getting my quick surf in.
Later we cruised to a local house that had a half-pipe in the backyard and all three of us gave it a try. Cheyne is much better than all of us put together. And as a result, my knee still hurts. Stay tuned...
