Gallery: Jimmicane’s California Weekend

posted by / Photos / March 22, 2011

We finished the June issue last week, so I had a little time to cruise south to north and take some photos. Here’s some of the throwaways that weren’t good enough to make the mag but are hopefully worth checking out. —Jimmicane

Eric Geiselman charging the dreaded end-section floater. A good way to kill your knee or blowout an ankle and never even feels satisfying to pull.

Went to Josh Kerr’s movie premiere of Kerrazy Kronicles on Wednesday night and then got to witness it in person. We’ll be running some photos in the mag of him from this session, no doubt.

Damo and Kerr are surfoholics. They had their wetsuits on in the Subway parking lot waiting for the rest of the crew to get food. Psyching for this before dark session.

    Your water shots are a joke. I cannot believe that you are on staff at SURFING. Considering the magazines rich history of working with innovative water photographers, you should hang your head in shame. And yes, your “A” water shots also suck.
