Here's a couple of killer water photography shots sent to me by pro-snapper Manny Vargas. Kiwi and I were stoked to run into Manny and local ripper Sean Fowler down the beach last Friday. Kiwi ended up scoring this killer right hander and I nailed a cool little beach-side interview with Manny. Check out shots and check back for my interview:

Photo: He told me that there was nothing to do but stand there and watch the lip fly past his ear...
Photo: And at the end of the wave, there was Manny- SPL housing and fisheye just waiting and shooting.
Photo: I even snagged one- but the whole deal with water photogs is that you're supposed to aim right for their head... that lens is an in-your-face type of situation... and I have to admit, getting that close with 9' of stand-o kind of hairs me out.
Photo: Next time, I swear it- I'm putting that thing right in his face!
Photo: Here's one from Friday- the one that got away.
Manny's super skilled, fired up to get in the water and stoked to shoot stand up surfing. The guy's an animal in the water, swimming into collision courses with barrel and stand-o. Check back and see what makes him tick.
