Photos: Swimming at Jaws

All photos Brent Bielmann
SURFING photographer Brent Bielmann shot photos from the water at Jaws on Wednesday. On purpose. And we didn’t even tell him to do it (you think we want that on our conscience?). Why didn’t he just stay on land, or at least a Jet Ski? Why did he swim his 50mm lens so close to the impact zone? “So many guys shoot Jaws, from land and from Skis…I just wanted a different angle,” says Brent. (Cue the applause.)
