Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you can’t get your surfing fix. You don’t have to own a 5/4 wetsuit or be lucky enough to live in Hawaii or Tahiti. As long as you have a smartphone, you have access to the best surf photography in the world
Some of the top photogs in the business use Instagram, and we collected a few of their handles here so you can have a fresh supply of stoke even when summer feels a million years away.
Stuart Gibson / @stugibson
A finalist in this year’s Red Bull Illume photography competition, Tasmanian “camera clicker” Stuart Gibson takes jaw-dropping pics, like this one of James Hollmer Cross riding a terrifying mutant at Shipstern’s Bluff, Tasmania.
Zak Noyle / @zaknoyle
Hawaii-based Zak Noyle is also a staff photog at Surfer. His timelapse of Gabriel Medina doing a backflip was a finalist in this year’s Red Bull Illume competition. Here, surfer Zeke Lau flies into the Oahu sunrise.
Just go ahead and add ‘em already.
