Here are some truly amazing surf shots taken from various secret spots across Ireland in a short titled "Dark Side of the Lens". We get a taste of some of the most frigid, isolated spots unlike any other destination behind the lens of a true professional. Here is more from the video:
“Chances are you have seen or at least heard of the cold-water hellmen charging Ireland’s frigid slabs, but if you haven’t seen them through the lens of Mickey Smith, you haven’t truly experienced the grandeur that the Emerald Isle is holding. Winner of a long list of awards in 2011—including Grand Prize at Chamonix film festival, People’s Choice at the Amstel Surf Film Festival, and Best Short Film in the Surfer Poll, New York Surf Film Festival, Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, Canadian Surf Film Festival and Waimea Ocean Film Festival—Dark Side of the Lens immerses you in the majestic and often surreal world of a surfer and water cinematographer at one of the world’s coldest, heaviest, most beautiful waves. ” – Matt
