United States
I'm Robert.
I live in Imperial Beach CA 91932
I ride a bodyboard, I like photography.
My general photography page and homebase on dA…
Howdy people. :wave:

The recent postings wrap up the surf from 09-19-09. It was a small day with not too much going on. The next day is going to be 09-22-09. A bit of a bump in the swell, and I photographed in the morning when it was still clean and lots of people out. Much more photos from that day.

On the eve of a new year, and a new decade, I hope all finds you well and happy, safe and sound.

Thanks to all for looking, faving and +watching. ALOHA  and keep the stoke.


Did you know you can use the 'DownLoad ' button to the right of the photos in the gallery to down load a full size version of the shot? Just click the 'DownLoad' button, wait for it to load to your screen, then left click for full size, then right click to 'save as'.

Did you know I keep a minimum of shots in the 'Featured' section of my gallery. To the left are folders containing full sets of photos for each month or other subjects, such as 'Sky'.  Just click on the folder and it'll take to the sub-gallery.

Surf slideshows on YouTube; .…………

If you spot yourself in the slideshow, let me know at what time you appear and I can upload the shots to this gallery if I have'nt already done so.


I'd like to spotlight a special deviant that has happened by my gallery. She is… LaColombeDe Deuil or  kattie, as she signs her comments. ;)

She has written the most beautiful comment on a deviation, pure poetry. I'm going to quote them here for now,

"In the wave, feel the power that is yours to take
This is just a dream, for the ocean has many secrets
But you are mastering her, she is your mistress
And her silken arms are welcoming you into the white
lace of her desires."
"and you wait, and you can feel it in the breeze -
it is the ocean and she is sending a gift
for you to fly on - stretch your wings"
LaColombeDe Deuil or  kattie

Wow. Imagine finding such a comment on your work. I'm beside myself. Stop by her gallery, she has pages of some of the most beautiful and deep poetry.


I now have an E-Mail account for contacting me, for those who don't have an account on dA.

My YouTube account is ibphotos

My other DeviantArt gallery of shots in Imperial Beach and around San Diego…

A surf art club on DeviantArt



I've been doing photography going on about 15 years now. I do have a passion for all types and style photography, but also an obsession with the surf. So in addition to my regular 'working' account here… created this account, to post nothing but surf, surfers in the surf, waves and other directly beach related stuff. In part to keep from boring my watcher's on the other account to death, in part to have a place where the surfer's on these waves can go to download a shot of themselves, doing what they love to do.

In addition to photographing the surf. I do like to ride. I ride boogieboards, with a set of fins mounted on. Gives a lot of extra speed and stickyness in a steep wave. That's where the account title comes in. I'm a 'sponger', my names Robert or Bob, and so that makes me a Boogerman. :wave: :handshake: Pleased to meet you.

Two things about this account.

(1) This is photojournalism. The express purpose is to document and share the happenings in the surf. Not a stock photography account, and no prints are for sale. Feel free to download for your own viewing enjoyment. But absolutely do not re-post anywhere else on the internet, do not offer for sale anywhere, at anytime, to anybody.

(2) If you are the surfer on the wave in any one of these photographs, then you are free to download, copy and use the photo in what ever way you wish. I do however maintain full copyright and all the rights and priviledges that go with it, on the photograph. Simply, I own it, you can use it. The exception is, you may not use it for re-sale to a stock photo company.  :peace:
