Our culture of world class surf photography started when SURFING Mag editor Larry “Flame” Moore worked with SWELL/Surfline to add premier action sport media content to the best apparel assortment in the business. Since Flame’s passing, we continued the tradition of featuring renowned photographers to contribute their surf inspired visions in every catalog. Guest lensmen include: Jeff Hornbaker, Jason Naude,Tom Blake, Jeff Divine, Art Brewer and the finalists for the Follow the Light photography grant.
