Aerial Filming of the Volcom Surf Contest
The Volcom Surf contest in New Smyrna Beach Florida happened this month. We had not filmed a surf contest before but found it to be an interesting experience. The purpose of our visit was to film a few sponsored surfers while getting some great footage for the upcoming 2014 Surf Expo being held in Orlando.
We got a lot of great shots and had quite few questions about the multicopters. We met with Ryan Gamma, Volcom Photographer who asked us to share some of our footage with Volcom. Everything went well that day Sunny weather with low wind which is great for operating the copters.

Yours Truly – Who took that photo?
One of my favorite shots of an unknown surfer looking up at the multicopter. We had several pictures as our camera was set on auto to shoot every few seconds.
We have literally hundreds of aerial pictures of the Volcom Surf Event. You can see more of them at the Grimmster Shop. You can download then there for free.
