When it's desperately flat- I find myself taking a jaunt into Williamsburg to visit my friends at Mollusk Surfshop. My brother and I usually strap the three kids in the car and head in for some up-close and personal board porn viewing. It's kinda like a strip-club for surfboard lovers, only your allowed to touch!! I highly recommend a trip to the shop- the guys involved are super committed to surfing and bringing great products to the east coast.
These shots were grossly underdeveloped- I pushed the development times but I guess I needed to go another stop or so. oh well I kinda like the effect.
