Full Moon Surf Session

Occasionally, I will head out for a surf session under the full moon.  My favorite surf session is at sunset when the brilliant hues of last light reflect on the water.  At nighttime, there is this very sensual aspect to surfing.  You are out there alone in the quiet and dark ocean.  Sometimes it's like you can't even see the waves.  My friend Pedro grabbed this shot of me catching this wave.  I really love how you can see my board and the moon reflection on the wave and you can't see my silhouette above the wave.  That gives you the scale.  Was a really beautiful night out in California.
