When I was a boy, my father told me, “Never explain yourself to anyone...” which at the time I didn’t fully understand. As a kid, I thought that would be rude and that if someone asked about me, I should tell them...it took me until now to get it. The other day, I was telling someone about a possible business opportunity that may be available to me sometime in the future, something I have been working towards and would bring a lot of what I’ve been working on altogether. The response I got was, “Uh huh...” for a moment, I thought to myself, “They don’t understand what this means, I should re-explain it!” But then my inner voice said, “No, they don’t get it...let it go.” Not explaining yourself isn’t about not responding to someones question, It’s about not explaining or justifying why you live your life the way you do, the choices that you make or the dreams that you have. As a general rule of thumb, if someone doesn’t get it, explaining won’t help. And if they “get you” you won’t every have to worry about that... #neverexplainyourself #surf #surfing #surfer #surfers #surf_shots #surfphotos #surfline #surfculture #surfporn #surfingphotography #surfphotos #surfphoto #surfsup #surferphotos #instasurf #njsurf #njsurfphotography #njsurfing #njsurfcollective #njphotographer #njphotography #beach #waves #swell #surfingphotos #thesurfersview #eastwaves at Parker House

CONFIDENCE...is one of the most powerful feelings in the world, especially if it comes from inside of you, creating it yourself. Most would say love alone is the most powerful, but confidence is a type of love, a love for yourself. We often wait on others to love us, and when they do not, we can lose our confidence. But if that love comes from inside of you, it cannot be taken away by another... I had a great session in the water today. I decided to finally surf the sand bar I’ve been watching and it turned out to be a lot of fun, a new favorite for me. I haven’t been out in the water for about five weeks due to injury & then illness, so I wasn’t sure how well I would do, concerned all the progress I had made may have slipped away, but that didn’t happen. First few rides were sketchy, but then it all came together, all the things I had been working on stayed with me and the improvement was there. I felt so relaxed when I was done, after paddling in I just laid back in the water and floated there for five minutes. It was a beautiful day & I was feeling great 😊 #confidence #confident #confidenceiskey🔑 #njsurf #njsurfing #njsurfcollective #njsurfphotography #gopro #goproselfie #goprosurf #goprosurfing #surf #surfing #surfer #surfphotography #surfporn #surf_shots #surfculture #surfingphotography #surfsup #njphotographer #njphotography #njbeaches at New Jersey

I grew up reading @surfer_magazine ... maybe not really reading, but instead captivated by the images. I didn’t live close enough to the beach to do any real surfing as a boy, so everything was done in my mind through the images on the magazine pages. I loved every issue and treated it like a sacred text. The images were tack sharp, full color/full page and took me right in with the rider, as if I was there with him, in the waves... When I shoot, I always have these images in mind, hoping I can get shots that amazing, that take the viewers the same places they took me as a boy... #surfermagazine #surferphotos #surf #surfing #surfer #surfrider #surfphotos #surfphotography #surfporn #njsurf #njsurfphotography #njsurfcollective #eastwaves #waves #swell #jetty #beach #jerseyshore #jersey_shore_exposure #surfsup #surfingphotography #njphotographer #njphotography #njphotographers #thesurfersview at The Salty Whale & Guesthouse

“Should” & “Shouldn’t have” do not exist, there is only what is...last week I was talking to a friend about an experience I had, and in talking about it, all he could respond with was, “That shouldn’t have happened.” No matter how I presented it, he responded the same way over and over, as if repeating it would some how alter it; he was so caught up in the “shouldn’t have” that he refused to acknowledge what actually did. Thought is an endless rabbit hole that spirals down & down, and some can get so caught up in it that it paralyzes them and they get trapped in the “would-should-could” loop instead of just dealing with what is & what actually is happening. Being present in what is going on in the moment is important to making mindful choices. This doesn’t mean forgetting the past or not preparing for the future, but not allowing those memories or possibilities to prevent us from living in the moment and making decisions from that place. #zen #zenbuddhism #mindfulness #present #njphotographer #beachlife🌴 #njphotography #njbeaches #beach #beachwaves #surf #surfing #surfingphotography #surfers #surf_shots #surfporn #njsurf #njsurfing #njsurfcollective #njsurfphotography #winterswell #winterwaves #surfer #longboarding #njinbnw #bnwphotography at Spellbinders Surf

I’ve been watching this break for a while now. For the longest time, it never was much, but the alignment of the jetty’s around it always said to me this should be a good spot, just had to wait for the sandbar to develop. The other day I was walking by and there was nothing more than a bump in the water, but it was breaking gently, a tiny A frame going left and right. I figured with the next swell, I would check it out; that swell was this past Monday and this is what is was doing. Now every wave wasn’t this nice, but there were plenty of them. Going to have paddle out there next swell...as a side note, I submitted this shot to the @nysea_surf Cold Shot Challenge and they featured it in their Instagram story. It may be small recognition, but it means a lot to me. I take pride in my surf photography, so I appreciate when other take notice 😊 #njbiggestwinterwave #njsurf #njsurfphotography #njsurfing #njsurfcollective #surf #surfing #surfer #surfsession #surflove #surfphotography #coldshot #winterwaves #njphotographer #njphotography #njbeaches #jersey_shore_exposure #coastaljerseyadventures #nautical_images #surfinglife #swell #surfculture #surf_shots #surfporn #surfingusa #surfphoto #eastwaves at New Jersey

The only person who can get you to be the best version of yourself is you, but no man is an island and accepting help from others with a like mind can be crucial along the way, so today I gave Robbie from @prosurf_coaches_official a call to thank him for his recent help in the water. About a week back, Robbie and I did a bunch of surfing together and even though they weren’t always official lessons, he took plenty of time to help me fix some bad habits. Being asthmatic, my lung capacity is often limited and with that grew fears in my mind, which I allowed to limit me. I often hung on the inside, going for smaller waves as I felt I didn’t have the paddle power to get me into larger ones. With the smaller waves on the inside, I often got into waves late, so to avoid pearling, I stayed further back on my board which slowed down the paddle & caused me to stall in the wave, and that cycle repeated itself over and over. Being out with Robbie three times in a week & he pushed me OUT of those habits. After catching a wave in, he would yell, “Paddle back out quick, no walking it!” As I would often do to save paddle strength which he replied, “You won’t build it if you don’t do it!” And he was right on that, among many other things that he corrected... Going out solo yesterday afternoon, the wind unfortunately had turned onshore & the swell messy, but I wanted to get wet and keep the practice up. So as I got partway out and thought “here is good” I heard Robbie in my head yell “GET OUTSIDE” so I did. I stayed outside the entire time, stayed further up the board, paddled strong for the sets, got into the waves early and dropped in vs. “cheating” into the face by setting a steep angle with the rail as I took off. The rides weren’t perfect, but it was a huge step forward for me. So thanks for the help, brother! 🤙🏼 #njsurf #surfnj #njsurfphotography #njsurfer #njsurfcollective #surf #surfing #surfer #surfingphotography #surfers #surf_shots #surfinglife #surfers #surfphotos #surf_shots #gopro #goprohero #goproselfie #goprosurf #goprosurfing #xcel #liquidshredder #wintersurf #fear #coldwater #njphotographer #njphotography at Lentil Tree
