Issue 18 cover shoot

So some numpty (me) lost the camera lead so I’ve been unable to get the photos off my waterproof and shockproof (vital attributes for a camera) little Olympus. But I managed to track down a card reader, so at last the pictures from our cover shoot in Morocco the week before last and ISPO are on the laptizza and ready to go.

Saying Pah! to the credit crunch and sticking two fingers up at the shit British weather, we headed back out to Morocco to stay with the dudes at Surf Maroc for the third time in the last year to shoot Roxy longboarder Candice O’Donnell for our Apr/May cover. Yes it was hot, yes Anchors was pumping (although work did get in the way of pleasure, goddamit) and yes we shot the best cover yet. Ok, I know I say that every time we shoot the cover, but this time I mean it.

Coming in to land at Agadir airport

The view from our balcony. Pretty shit hey?

We were told sunrise was at 6am. Turns out it was at 7am. Michelle from Roxy and Candice waiting it out in the car.

The sun coming up over the ruins at Anchor Point.

Michelle and makeup artist Abi are stoked they got up at 5am. Pro longboarder Jen Smith (left) was in residence and jogged up to see how proceedings were coming along.

Tomfoolery at the breakfast table. That’s what early starts do to you. We’d already been up for 4 hours and it was only 9am. But you see, the light is best first thing in the morning and at sunset.

Look, a bird! Candice working it for the camera.

The Dream Team: Babette, Jen, Candice and Abi.

Sunset at Anchors. Beats the 6pm rush-hour.
