about the shot
"Chilean Gold"

It was a last minute decision to go to Chile. We sat in the pouring rain for days and days waiting for the swell to come.
We thought we had planned it perfectly, but even in the fall you can still get a winter storm.

We woke up the morning after the rains to howling offshore winds, swell was pulsing and the conditions were as good as they get. We drove to a spot in the afternoon that the locals had said, “rarely breaks.” When we pulled up it was reeling left barrels for almost a football field’s length. We scrambled to get out and surf.
I was sun burnt and tired and had no idea how to document this moment.
The waves were some of the most i had ever seen, so I decided to risk it. I sprinted down the beach and hiked up a sand dune to get a pulled back perspective.

The shore break was so big, and the offshores’ plumes so high, that I was missing most of the best waves, but finally a set came through. The light, the wind, and the swell were perfect. It was as if everything in nature fell into perfect harmony for this single moment. As Peter Mendia eased into this wave, the backwash hit, sending a golden shower of water 10-feet above his head, and sending him down the line of another 20-second barrel.

Maximum Details, Maxiumum colors

With the ultraHD Photo Print Under Acrylic Glass, WhiteWall enables you to emphasize even the smallest details in your photo. Providing the source’s image quality is high enough to begin with, the ultraHD Photo Print remains precisely detailed – even in large formats and when viewed up close. The special development process results in completely realistic images that rival natural sight and the retina’s ability to bundle visual information into a single experience. WhiteWall achieves this level of realism through a combination of state-of-the-art technology and excellent image optimization software that analyzes images and refines image files specifically for this process. In an ultraHD Photo Print Under Acrylic Glass, the contours and details are more powerfully expressed.
