It’s no secret how much I love surfing and I’m always on the lookout for the next bad ass surfing video. Combine that with the fact that I’m always looking for what other people are capable of doing with the Canon 7D- especially in regards to the limits of slow motion. Well, if you’re me, sooner or later you find this video- and then you find your mouth on the floor.

Cruze-aratitravel writter Mike Barish takes us on an adventure in Hawaii to learn about the ancient art of Gyotaku from artist Naoki Hayashi. Mike hops in to his Chevy Cruze and heads down to the ocean to meet Naoki and to do some spearfishing in search of a catch to transform into a work of art.
Gyotaku literally translates to fish rubbing and dates back to the mid-19th century, where fisherman recorded there catch by painting them in sumi ink and pressing them to paper. The resulting artwork is beautiful. Check out the videos!

This exotic fish may be native to southeast asia, but would you believe there’s one place in the United States where you can catch one right along side a largemouth bass. While they’re most commonly found here in aquariums many misinformed owners don’t realize they can grow up to 40″ [...]
