As usual it was quite the mission traveling with lots of heavy camera gear. But I learnt a lot and wont be traveling with Peach airlines ever again thats for sure. They are not photographer friendly at all.
I was traveling with quite a bit of photo and video gear though including my Canon 300mm f2.8, 4 other lenses and two Canon bodies, the 5DmkIII and 1DmkIV. I also took along my new underwater surf housing from Liquid Eye and had a great time (although sometimes scary) shooting in the waves with the surfers. I'll be posting plenty of photos and video in the weeks to come but for now I have to sift through the 14,000 or so images and video and prepare images for all the sponsors and riders etc..
Heres just a small sneak peak of what I saw there.
