Previously in denial about his photographic past, Rob Gilley now rummages through his trove of mediocrity.

Every surf photographer has them. A boatload of images without a name attached. A pile of “unidentifieds.”

It occurred to me that now, in this era of social media and cyber-connectivity, that there’s a way to possibly solve that. Give those photographs a public forum and let the World Wide Web attempt to link up these unidentified surfers with names. A public game of match making. Veritable hook-ups for some needy bachelors.

So let’s see how this game of Image Match goes. Check the photos below, see if it’s someone you recognize, and then post their name on the comment board.

Good Luck.

    Only seeing some pro going ballistic on some epic surf trip is great but nice to remember we all have our own personal moments of glory. There are so many unsung hero moments out there. Why not reward a few with simple recognition? I dig this section.
