YOUR ON-BOARD GUIDE & PHOTOGRAPHER
Brian – Your Guide & Surf Photographer
Our on-board surf guide & photographer, Brian Blank is from LA, California where he grew up on the beach. He found a passion for the ocean at a young age and since then surfing & surf photography have become a huge part of his life. Brian has lived in Indonesia for more than 5 years, and has an in-depth knowledge of Mentawai surf conditions and finding the right waves at the right times, as well as the right waves to suit the tastes and skill level of our guests.
To really get the most out of your Mentawai experience, Brian can shoot pro-level photographs of you using our Canon 7D camera with waterhousing. There’s an additional fee for this service which is USD $200 per person for boat photography, and an extra charge for water photography of USD $100. This will get you a copy from start to finish for the entire trip on a USB or CD. Please bring the additional cash with you as there are very few ATM’s in the Mentawai’s.
The Canon has a wide range of high end lenses – including tele-zoom, wide angle and fisheye to ensure we can capture all your magic Mentawai moments. Think about it – starting from only $200.00, what better way to capture your most epic waves and memories, not to mention something to show off and brag about when you get home
