Last Hippie at J-Bay
Aug 2, 2011

Jeffreys Bay is one of the top surf spots in the world.

I met this surfer (64 years old) from the old days of surfing. He still surfs every day and lives a real hippie lifestyle. Quite a character. Also his dog Scooter Girl.

Taken with a new D90 (I upgraded from a Fujifilm s9600). The D90 had back focus issues but this was fixed by Nikon SA - however it came back overexposing on the 18-105 but fine on 53/1.8. Back to Nikon & now OK.

The surf shots are to give an idea of the waves. I will have to get a longer lens 300mm or 400mm.

Oops typo Lens is 35/1.8 and exposure discrepancy was 2 stops but varied with EV.
