I have never been there myself, but this makes me feel like it. Thank you guys..
What happened to Vince Street? I heard he moved to Russia to shoot photos for the AP. That guy was a killer photog. That shot of Dorian is so sick……
how could you guys leave out Kelly’s “DROP” from this list. it was mentioned but not shown (copyrights?). THAT was the A+ moment of surfing right there. STILL, Killer article!! thanks
The film shots have so much more depth than the digi shots. Digi shots look pretty flat compared to some of those older images.
Raimana não pensou duas vezes pulou do jet, mas surfa muito!
I hope for the sake of the guys in the take-off zone, that this is the last wave of the set!
Anyone else notice the cloud formation that is the same shape of the wave AI is riding in shot #7
Would have loved Malik Joyeux bomb from blackwater to be in this, i still think its the best bomb to this day anyone’s been towed into
OQ – Photog Vince Street is living far from the water in North Idaho and is featured at Blackwell Gallery in Coeur D’ Alene Idaho. His Teahupoo 40″ x 60″ is a center piece of the gallery. His email is email@example.com
crazy. i remember corey’s bomb. was ground breaking. now it looks like an average barrel out there.
this was a fantastic gallery!
Insanely amazing bombs, wish I could do that!
Where’s Andy’s hell drop?! You know which one I’m talking about… Bruce looking over the ledge calling him chicken as Andy airdrops into oblivion… i get goose bumps just reminiscing about the first time I saw that image and the sequence it was part of.
The photo ”Channel traffic” makes it look like a French beach break
I don’t think Corey’s wave back then (when was it, 1998?) was fully appreciated and given the coverage it deserved. That is still a super heavy paddle wave out there even by today’s standards (over 10 years on).
Is this real?
