Surfing Photography

What is it about surfing that is so alluring? I have always had a fascination with surfing and the whole lifestyle around it. I think it’s partly because of my lifelong obsession with California, but partly also because it seems like such a fun way of life, and so totally in tune with nature.

I’ve always thought of it as a warm weather sport, but these guys were out there no matter what, even on completely calm and quiet days when it looked like there were no waves at all.

They spent hours on end just waiting, but it always payed off – seemingly out of nowhere, waves appeared and their long wait was rewarded. There was something so peaceful and beautiful about their dedication, I just had to document it. And of course it resulted in a new print series. 🙂

Do I surf? Not yet… so far, I’ve stuck to boogie boarding, which I love, but surfing is definitely on my bucket list.
