Island roots in the heart of Texas – through the lens of Otis Stevens

News

The contrast between surfing’s guarded outposts and the all-players-welcome approach of wave pools is like few other juxtapositions in the world today. Otis Stevens learned the Hawaiian surf photography code early.

Making salted surf look magnificent, ethereal, moody and mythical is rather easy given that it’s, well, the ocean. Giving something human-made a nature-made aura is one of the biggest challenges in photography. No dolphins, salt spray, Technicolor reefs or random imperfections. Wave pools are just stick-to-the-blueprint trappings of measured water and machine output. But to make them appear natural? That

Surfing and shooting Korea’s natural and unnatural waves with Moon-Ho Jung

Latest

Shortly before Wave Park South Korea opened and Wavegarden had a tight lid on all digital assets, we discovered a trove of wonderfully stripped-down clips by Moon Ho Jung that showcased the wave’s potential. What we soon realized is that Korea has a core surfing scene. It’s one that went from just a handful of core participants to having overrun

Portfolio: Rob Henson’s artistic take on the prosaic wave pool point-and-shoot

News

Rob Henson, the staff photographer at the BSR Surf Resort is becoming an artist. But he won’t admit to it. Between 16-hour days shooting and his no-frills Texas sensibilities he has little room to embrace the fancy stuff. We tried to out him as an artist by throwing out terms like “composition” and “texture” regarding this latest batch of photos

As wave pools expand across the globe, we're finding the art of surf photography keeps its footing within surf culture. No easy task, as wave pool surf photography could easily devolve into crass turnstile point-and-shoot. We fear the surfing equivalent of a rollercoaster drop-shot, those blurry TV monitor images you see exiting the ride. Consequently, we were a little apprehensive

What Jeff Divine’s rainbow shots at Pipe were to 1970s surf media, this latest round of Surf Lakes images are to the wave pool set. Why?
