Eric Geiselman and taco energy, Baja California, Mexico

Eric Geiselman is currently in Mex with his brother Evan, as well as Yadin Nicol, Oliver Kurtz and photographer Tom Carey. This photo was taken by Tom and stars Eric. But, how did we get here? “We bailed city life for tacos and cervezas,” says Tom. “But in that pursuit we also found some fun waves. This was our first session and Eric landed this lofty punt on his third wave. The swell’s coming up… as well as the taco count. I hope that isn’t too cheesy.” Puns! More to come from boiling Baja real soon…

Photographer profile

Tom Carey

Tom Carey is, like, 31 years young. Things may change when he’s older, but for now he ain’t shot much he digs: “I get sick of looking at stuff,” he says. “But, I guess the first remote flash shot I had run of Nate Yeomans was pretty epic. People probably wouldn’t remember. But it was a game-changer to me.” That says a lot about Tom. He does things for himself and he’s honest. Just ask him about being ripped off by the industry: “Everyone wants to skim a few dollars off you. Its not coming out of their pockets but it’s sure as hell coming out of ours.” And since he was so thrilled to answer, Stab’s gotta include Tom’s fav retired shooters: “I love this question. No one asks it anymore. Maybe Chris Van Lennep. I don’t know, the list could go on. Tony Roberts f’sure. His shots really inspired me. His angles in the water were so ahead of his time.”
