With time off between shoots, our Holiday fun would be to experiment with flying in the waves (and below the waves level), to see if we could get close enough and follow our fast moving surfers while flying from a beach 200/300 meters away. Instead of a straight exercise we wanted more "drone story telling" shots, to try and do "drone time lapse" concepts. By chance we met Brianne and Roberto on the beach of Santa Teresa Costa Rica who let us enter and film their world. Here is what we came up with.
