Relax hands October 04 2016, 0 Comments

One of the tips from 110% Surfing Techniques Volume 3 was to relax your hands when you paddle, with slight gaps between fingers, something that experienced surfers do without really thinking about it. I noticed that beginner/intermediate surfers sometimes close their fingers really close together, and look super tense, hence the tip. I am not a swim coach, but it appears that is similar in swimming technique too, with having the fingers spread just enough to increase surface area of the paddle. Also I would say having a relaxed hand feels better, and leaves the rest of your body to do the paddle work.

Go Pro Retro Angle January 21 2016, 0 Comments

Test video of the a GoPro Hero 4 Session mounted on the deck/nose of the board. Set up in 1080p, superview, 48fps.
Probably the original GoPo mounting position, we've used it a lot in 110% Vol 2 and 3. We try not to use the same angle too much, but with the camera's getting better its hard to resist this POV.

Product Testing - Head Torch & Go Pro Hero 4 Session - Bali Dawn Surf January 07 2016, 0 Comments

We've been testing out a head torch and go pro (Hero 4, Session) mounted on a helmet during the night, but thought we would try a pre sunrise session in Bali. Go pro is set on 1080p 25fps, superview, mounted on a helmet with a head torch. Some nice images in the video, but the plan was to get a good one a bit earlier in the session so it was darker, hence showing the effect of the head torch more, maybe next time!
The Go Pro Superview setting is great, kinda making the most of the 4:3 and 16:9 view.

Moon light surf with head torch - Nov 22nd 2015 January 04 2016, 0 Comments



This moonlight surf session was filmed back in November 2015, we had been waiting a while to get a full moon and clear skies, and some clean waves to make it worthwhile. The water was still mild after the Summer, and the air was cold so the sea was steaming.

Martin Connolly and Harry Bennett are taking in turns with the Lupine 1500 lumen head torch (mounted on a helmet), and the other filming with a Nikon 1 AW1.

The tricky part is spotting the waves and taking off, you have to rely on your surfing instincts; something that we cover in 110% Surfing Techniques Volume 4 (currently editing).

This is Harry with the head torch, and Martin has taken a pic (with flash) with the Nikon 1 AW 1.

Another still from the Nikon.

We had the head torch mounted quite high up to give the light more elevation to the light would reach further, trying to make it easier to spot waves, but it didn't make too much difference. So we now mount the light low down again so it doesn't clip the lip.

This is a frame grab from the video.

110% Surfing Techniques Volume 4 - UPDATE - Reading Waves December 23 2015, 0 Comments

Martin (above) has been busy editing 110% Surfing Techniques Volume 4 over the past couple of months, with some sections completed.

One of the most requested subjects when we did some customer research (thanks everyone that helped out), was how to read waves, so we've done three sections on reading waves, which follows on nicely from 'catch more waves' part 1 and 2 from Volume 3.

So with Volume 4 you should have some great tips for spotting the good waves and improving your surfing instinct.

'Voice Over Girl'. February 04 2014, 0 Comments

We get a lot comments about whether the 'Voice Over Girl' surfs, so we thought it would be a good idea to post a photo of Annika Connolly surfing in Hawaii. Although Annika narrates on the videos, the actual content is written by husband Martin.
