A short film on what goes into a season at Jaws. From the surfers to the photographers, a huge process takes place to prepare and take on aswell. We were on a mission to capture surfing at its highest level from paddling Jaws at 50 feet to airs that have yet to be seen. While shooting some of the shots of surfing we use a smartphone camera for better focus, lights and the colors.
