Over the past 8 years of my career I had never made a show reel. After purchasing the RED I knew that was one of the first things I needed to do. It was the first time I was able to capture and share motion the way I had always envisioned doing it. The goal of this was to highlight some of the best moments in action sports. It features some of my favorite athletes like USA Olympic Gold winner Sage Kotensburg, 11X World Champion Kelly Slater and the future of surf, 14 year old Noah Beschen.

I produced this video in collaboration with two friends, Brook Sterling and Zach Miller. The concept behind this for me was was to escape everything. Shot on RED Epic, at 4 & 5k with the Canon 24-105mm & 16-35mm.
Zach Miller had this to say, "Sometimes you get caught up trying to learn every trick, ride contests, get sponsors... But when you block all that out and bring it back to finding a line and riding, you realize in the end that there is only one trick, drop in."

I've been working with Noah Beschen since he was 10 years old. I built this page to show Noah's growth as a surfer over the past 4 years. Safe to say, the future is bright for young Noah. Follow him @noahbeschen on instagram and Facebook.

We all know Bethany Hamilton as the surfer girl from Kauai who survived a shark attack when she was just 13-years old. From magazines to books to major motion pictures, her story has been told on myriad platforms, but never before has she shared exactly how she is able to surf with just one arm.
From battling through the shorebreak to taking off late on overhead waves, it’s remarkable to watch her in action. This is how she does it…
