Lake Erie, Ontario

We’ve been following Alex Mattie since his trip to Gold Coast, Australia, and all we can say is that his adventures are always interesting. Now back from his journey far away from home, we can now find him in one of the Great Lakes, capturing surfing with his friends. We’re obsessed with these photos & most importantly, by the fact that it doesn’t even look like lake surfing … Don't you think?

Tofino, British Columbia

From the East to the West, we are now in Tofino, British Columbia. Always capturing surfers on the Island, Alfonso is transporting us in the heart of cold water surfing through his Instagram and it’s nothing less than fascinating. Here’s Ravi Camire (@ravicamire) riding one of our favourite local brands, Aftanas Surfboards (read our interview with Stefan Aftanas here). 

@GHIGHHOUSE
San Diego, California

Every time we see photos from Garrett Highhouse, we can’t help but think how powerful his photos are. No matter if it showcased surfing or not, Garrett’s style is dark, unique and captivating. This San Diego’s photographer is someone you should keep your eyes on and until then, dig through his Instagram & find some amazing gem, like this shot of Mike Stidham (@kook_wizard).

@MATTIMAGES
Gold Coast, Australia

Yet so simple, sunsets at sea are something extremely captivating for any surfers and photographers. The peacefulness it brings us is instant & this photo of Matt is perfect to soothe any worried souls. As always, Matt makes us want to move to the Gold Coast & live happily ever after. Should we?
