How the Hell . . .
While we're still working on a final video of Bill and Quinn's swim, here's an answer to a question I get a lot about these photos. How, while paddling a surfboard, do you take these still shots and video? This video clip shows a bit of the technique. I sat still for a while shooting and they passed me by. I needed to catch up so, with camera in one hand, I paddled hard with my other hand. Watch the video and keep that in mind. Eventually you will see some slick editing and a polished finished product (right, Quinn?) but sometimes the original stuff tells a story too. Under these conditions even turning the camera off is a challenge.
