Alright you head down to Vland by any chance? How much would you say you were croping the sunset pictures? You happy with the 400 or wish you had something bigger?

I have to honestly say that I did have to crop a lot. With the 7D, I was shooting at roughly 640mm. The uncropped shots turned out good, but I had to crop in if I wanted to show off more of the action. This lens is worlds better than my 200/2.8II in these situations and I would rather have the 400/5.6 vs the monster 400/2.8, 500/4IS, or 600/4IS lenses. I definitely could have helped my cause more by being right on the shoreline, but I wanted to shoot in the comfortable shade of the judging tent.

I'm sure there must have been some fun people watching if you were by the Volcom house.

It was pretty rad to be right there. I've always seen some good pictures coming from that house. I did get a picture of Kala Alexander on the balcony staring right at me. I haven't posted it yet because I'm too scared of how he'd react to it if he ever saw it, HAHA!

Kala and the Wolfpak seems like an interesting set of characters and probably not the guys I would want to piss off (you should post in the People section where it would be buried from the eyes of the WPak & Pipe Posse) .

I've seen some nasty footage of when the "whistle" gets blown and a pretty serious beat down that ensues.
