Ocean Drive is one of the most iconic places in Miami. I wanted to capture it like I have never seen it before. There are so many photos of this iconic street but I have never seen any close-ups from the air.
This is where my drone came into play, I wanted to get some different perspectives but at the same time capture the famous street in a way it could be recognized for what it is, Ocean Dr.
Miami Beach Surfers
Its sunrises like this one that creates awesome waves here in Miami Beach. I travel often and the conversation of where I live (or based out of) always comes up, when I say Miami Beach its almost always followed by: ohh you can’t surf there right? there is no waves?” I don’t mind the question as I am used to it and Miami is not known for surfing, so its a fair question.
Miami Beach is super mellow when it comes to waves and by no means its the surfing capital of the world, that being said the surf scene here is quite big and we do get nice waves when the climate changes. Usually waves are small but definitively ridable and sometimes we get some really nice barrels, and guess what?? The water is really warm :)
I thought I would put this question to rest by going out there and shooting some surfers riding some waves here in Miami Beach. If you want to catch the nice waves, you have to wake up early and keep track of the weather. Don’t assume that all we do here is party like maniacs, I mean we do that too but we also love the water…
Here are some photos I shot of some dudes killing it out there, it was a great morning to say the least.
If you are new to Miami Beach or just visiting and want to hang out with the surfers go to South Point and find this lifeguard tower, you can’t miss it, its usually surrounded by beautiful ladies with their surfboards and everyone there is super cool. If you spot me taking some flicks come say hi, and hey if there is no waves that day you can always go paddle boarding or get a mojito on Ocean Dr.

Good afternoon people. Las night was windy and a bit cool, (for Miami Beach) but I managed to get on my bicycle and head to Ocean Dr. The clouds were just amazing. I could’t look at them thought my window without going out there and taking some pix. I posted this on Facebook earlier but the resolution was bad, so here it is. Ocean Dr. dressed in Black.
