Just a short collection of surf photography links from some of my favourite photographers.
There are so many great surf photographers out there and to list all of my inspiration would take for ever. Quite frankly I believe you’d gloss over it and be bored just at the sight of all the surf photography links.
Here are just a few that have shaped my love for the art form, these are the guys that make me wake up and say, “Lets go get wet”.

They don’t have to be surf photographers, they don’t even have to be photographers. I draw inspiration from many sources, along with painting and illustration amongst other things.
