The Unofficial Mat Meet Photographer

(Photo by Jay Golien of Slider Magazine)

We've had two mat meets thus far. And Ken has taken close to 1000 shots at those two meets combined. No one ever takes a picture of the photographer. This time, someone did! (We were at San O for the pig luau. I took two of my pig longboards . . . and then sandwiched my surf session between two mat sessions.)

He's got about 600 shots from our L.A. mat meet.

I'd like to think of this picture as one of us preparing for battle. Ken's camera is fully loaded and ready to fire. I'm prepping the heavy artillery. (Note the "heavy artillery" is a mat!!)

Ken has covered us so well -- tack sharp, nicely timed, and perfectly exposed pictures.

Maria took a shot of you two. I'll find it and add to this post if I can.
