In preparation for Surf Week I decided to contact two of my close friends who are actually part of the surf culture and ask them to send me images... and yes, they both happen to be photographers.
The first, Katherine Levin Sheehan, is married to a surfer, and sent me these great shots that document the anatomy of a daily surf run in her household. I love the intimate and everyday feeling of these shots. Click on her link to see all the shots.
The second, Thayer Allyson Gowdy, is an avid surfer who spends her life traveling and shooting all over the world. In her free time she is always running off to the small surf town of Sayulita in Mexico. Here is an amazing group of photos she took of surfers and the lifestyle in surf towns. Be still my heart and my inner surf betty.
