Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what's happening in the shot.
Who’s up today: Tyler Buck, a student at UMass-Dartmouth School of Law, takes to the waves off Wollaston Beach in Quincy after his classes were canceled for the day, Oct. 29, 2012.
Buck: “I was running with a group of friends along the boardwalk and I saw storm surge in the harbor. I drove a mile up the street to grab my board, determined to be the first-ever surfing beneficiary of global warming in Boston Harbor. As I got out of the car, and the wind almost smacked my board into my face, I thought about not jumping in. However, stupid ideas should always be followed up with commitment and perseverance. That’s actually how I ended up in law school.”
