The Whole Setup is Here!

eDigital is still a shady company in my eyes.  They literally gave me 7 word emails regarding my missing items.  Thankfully everything arrived....only one thing though.  The packaging was so trash.  All the edges of every box are crushed to some degree.  I'm really thinking of sending it all back but I'm super stoked to have everything I may just say screw it and keep it all. I inspected everything pretty thoroughly and there's no physical damage to the lens of camera.  So we good to go.  Cya at the beach soon.

Sending Camera Back

eDigital USA (Amazon Seller) sent me the completely wrong order and they are the most difficult people to get in touch with.  I'm not saying don't order anything from them on Amazon but be extremely careful when you do.  This has been a nightmare.

UPDATE 1:  Here's everything that's missing that I ordered:

An invoice or receipt.  Yup they didn't even send me any kind of paperwork.
Nikon 200-500 Lens = Missing
Nikon Battery Pack = Missing
2 Sony Memory Cards = Missing
Extra Camera Battery = Missing

Also the packaging was very suspect.  Many small accessories were loose.  The box they shipped the camera in was nearly the same size as the Nikon camera box.  There was only room for a thin layer of bubble wrap one ONE SIDE of the box.  That's how small this shipping box was.

In all, over $2000.00 worth or product is missing from my order.  It completely blows my mind they didn't even send an invoice.  

Just a few minutes ago I got off the phone with Amazon Concierge Care and they were extremely helpful.  Now I need to wait for eDigital to contact me back. Their policy is 2 business days to get back in touch with customers.  Guess I'm waiting till next week.....

MASSIVE UPDATE

EDIT 1 12/28: Camera isn't arriving until tomorrow (12/29).  Another issues is I'm working 8a-8P and the cam has to be signed for.  ugh..... I'm trying to get it sent to the FedEx Ship Center so I can pick it up on my lunch break.  

 I said screw it and dropped a ton of money on a new set up.  Everything is coming in on the 28th this month!  If you look at my last post I claimed the same thing but ran into some major issues that I don't want to talk about.  We're all good now and we'll be perfect on the 28th when my new setup comes in!!! Take a look at the pic below so see whats coming in!!!!!!! So pumped up!

It's Been Way too Long

Almost 6 years ago to the day I started Folly Surf Photography.  I was only one of two other surf photographers on the beach.  You probably don't even know their names.  It was a different time.  Once the blog got some traction a lot of other people grabbed a camera and began to shoot.  Now we have a small handful of really great photographers.  You know who you are and you guys probably know their names.  I'm happy to say it's been awesome to witness how far the local photography scene has come.

On average I still get 1000 views per week.  No idea why because ever since my camera got stolen way back in 2013 I haven't posted shit.  I took some serious time off from everything when that happened.

But a big change is about to come once again to Folly.  Remember how I put the Washout on Surfline, Surfer, and The Surfers Journal? Be patient, I'm coming back.

I can't wait to start taking more photos like this.  Hurricane Earl September 2010.

Oh Hey!



I'm still alive.  It's finally warm.  And I've surfed for the past 5 days in a row.  What?  Kind of amazing duh.  So in honor of the first Tropical Invest this season I decided to come out of blog hiding.  Although I kinda wish I brought my camera out to the beach today so I coudl put  a picture up but the rain put a damper on things.  

Tomorrow I want to take a few shots.  If anyone wants to donate me a 70-200 Nikon lens I'd love that.  Hey, it's worth a try.

Waves

I've been in a blah mood lately.  I don't feel like writing anything either.
