    The Mauli Ola Foundation does these surf experience events on occasion for the kids with cystic fibrosis. Apparently the salt water/ clean air helps alleviate some of the their symptoms. They were able to get the likes of pro surfers Sunny Garcia, Kala Alexander and my good friend mike morrissey to come surf with these kids. After some beers with mike last night I decided to come down to the event this morning and volunteer to get some shots and clips and give them the content. Here's a quick edit I put together of the event. And yes I had full permission to fly for them. If this doesn't put a smile on your face I don't know what will. My color grading/editing/editing skills still need some work, but everyone has to start somewhere and after all it was for a good cause.

    Beautiful mate! You're a good man!
    Thanks for sharing.

    On a side note, why doesn't vimeo play in 1080p?

    Thank you kindly @sirnikolas It was pretty awesome to see how stoked those kids were.

    I just upgraded my vimeo account and had it re-transcode to 1080p. Should be good to go now.

    I recently bought a Vimeo Plus account and I quickly found out that they don't offer true 1080p and what they really offer is 1080p upscaling. I quickly requested a refund within 24 hours of purchasing the account. The only way you'll get true 1080p + is with their Pro account. I can't see why anyone would want to drop $219 a year where you can get the same and more for free on youtube.

    Food for thought :p

    Ohhh reaaallly? That's dumb then. I upgraded vimeo due to Youtube blocking that edit because of the song I used. I guess youtube it is then. Whatever the upgrade is a write off anyways for my photography side biz. Thanks for the info! I appreciate it @sirnikolas
