While the Caribbean has no shortage of rideable waves (and impressive breaks such as Tres Palmas), it isn't known for monster waves.
So when a big swell popped up on the Caribbean radar near Panama earlier this month, we booked last-minute tickets to score what was shaping up to be one of the better swells in a long time. The surfing world descended on the isthmus, including Kelly Slater, Sunny Garcia, and Greg Long.
Pat Schmidt and I set up shop in Bocas del Toro and worked on capturing a few good images. This particular evening happened during the tail end of the swell when I was set up on the inside of the wave with a fisheye lens where the waves hit the reef.
