Isles de la Madaleine (Magdaline Islands)

I've been holding out on posting stuff about this trip for a few reasons but since I've been in Brazil now for over a month I figured I should post a few shots and write a bit about the trip.

Julien Fillion and I had been talking about doing this trip for almost 4 years now and this was the first time we were actually able to line it up.  I had just switched to North and needed some media on my new kit to get things rolling and Julien had already lined up Vincent Bergeron for a photographer.  I had never worked with him before but Vincent is super hungry to get good shots and is very passionate about his work... couldn't have asked for more!  Vinny is definitely on it and I'm looking forward to doing some more trips with him in the future.

With a super motivated photographer and one of the most picturesque places I've ever visited, this made our 10 day trip one of the most productive I've ever been on.  Julien banged out lots of great wave shots and Vinny and I worked in the flat water with some random features.  We had wind everyday and rode somewhere new session (sometimes 2 or 3 different spots) as well!  If you haven't heard of the Magdaline Islands you should check it out for sure.  I know I'll definitely be going back next year!  Sorry for not posting any action... but I dont want to spoil any of the shots we have coming out!  Look for lots of coverage on this trip in all of your fovorite mags next issues!
