50 Totally Awesome Surf Photos

50 Totally Awesome Surf Photos

Written 7 years ago by Lee Milthorpe

The summer here in England has arrived and the weather this past week has been baking! Perfect weather for surfing, and what better way could there be to celebrate the happy season than to give you a post full of inspirational surf photography from four really talented individuals!

I’ve never actually attempted to surf, apart from the many failed attempts to surf the inflatable alligator in the hotel swimming pool as a child, and teenager, and come to think of it, as a 23 year old last week, but I am writing this post whilst wearing my new boardshorts and flip flops so I at least feel like I could be riding a few of these waves. Enjoy!

Cory Scott

First up is Kiwi gymnast, stuntman and chief photographer for New Zealand Surfing Magazine, Cory Scott.

Doubtlessly Stunning photographs. But, as per my little knowledge, I think post processing has exceeded a little in Little’s images.

I’m a big fan of the inside the curl of the wave shot. Great skill and concentration needed as no doubt the photographer got tumbled after the shot.

Only one word comes to mind. AWESOME!

Emily Beckett  5 years ago

WOW, thos are some great photos. How do they focus in the dark? What I mean by this is I am looking at the flash photos, but how do they focus a second before the flash goes off, or is it really not that dark where they can focus, but the flash is making it seem darker then what it is.

Andrew Shields photos are always great, and Clark Littles shots are just artistically amazing.

Do yourself a favour and check out Trent Mitchells work as well, another great surf photographer from the Gold Coast.

Inspiring! Those photos are really good. All those photos above combined two of my dream things -surfing and photography. I cannot imagine how hard it is for the photographers to take those photos when they did. But if I´d have to challenge myself when taking those photos, I would still have a big smile on my face upon seeing those photos.

Bridget @ GreenGlobalTravel  2 years ago

These photos are truly impressive! I’m sure a lot of skill goes into producing these images. Thanks for sharing!
