“Yo Shot Challenge” New York’s premier photo challenge

We are stoked to launch our first 100% public online contest. Open to all. Take a good shot from your camera/go pro or phone and win some money.

Some small but fun looking waves finally on the forecast from tropical storm Gabrielle. So we are looking forward to the first entries this week. NYSEA urges the photographers out there to push each other and get creative.

We asked professional photographer and the 2012 Surfline User photo of the year winner Matt Clark what he thought about the contest.

He is one of the most humble guys out there, but that does not transcend into his competitive nature.

Will Yo Shot beat Clark’s?
