Surfing the Beach Soundscape

The relationship of which I was focussing on for this exercise was the connection my sister has with the ocean. Having grown up near the beach her whole life, Shannon has a real love for all beach related activities and culture. She spends most afternoons in the summer surfing and swimming and during the winter will often walk the beach to relax and get out in the fresh air. When creating this soundscape, I focussed on Shannon getting ready at the beach, listening to the wind, sand and water, and then finally her walking towards the ocean for an afternoon surf. One major challenge which I did face however was the velocity of wind that was blowing into the mic, though I was able to edit this level out the sounds at a more even balance.
