Eighties Ladies: A Special 1980's Photo Feature by Simone Reddingius
Having discovered surfing in 1980 or so, I had my share of childhood surfing heroes ...Cheyne Horan, Tom Curren, Martin Potter and Tom Carroll to name a few. Each wall of my room was decorated with photos of my favorite surfers ...all of them cut out from Surfer, Surfing and Breakout Magazines. Unlike most of my peers though, I was also fond of women's surfing. Across from my Cheyne Horan and Tom Curren...

Today it's cold and rainy in Southern California, the type of day that lends itself perfectly to reflecting back to the warm days of summer. Of all the days I shot during that three month span, this session stands out from the rest. With a hungry pack of male world tour competitors scrounging for every wave possible, one girl held her ground and scored at least a dozen high-quality lefts that afternoon. Her name is Lulu Erkeneff.
You may or may not know Lulu but due to her homebreak being the photo-friendly Salt Creek, she's quite possibly...

Do a Google search for Bruna Schmitz and you'll be wading through well over one hundred images before you get to a single photo of her surfing. This fact may be hidden from the general web searcher but her fins-free blasts are equally beautiful.

Notes from the Sand: Courtney Conlogue's Frontside Air in the Round of 24
Presented by InsuranceSurfers.com
The Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro was an incredible event to watch. It's unusual to have eighty of the world's best surfers descend on your local break at one time but for the week of the Supergirl Pro, that's exactly what happened. After the madness of the US Open at Huntington, the City of Oceanside provided a welcome relief for many of the pros and I heard that sentiment repeated continuously throughout the week. Although there were some funky winds here and there, the ocean delivered...
We know what you're thinking. Mid-May is certainly not summer ...yet a trip to the beach earlier today sure felt like summer, so much so that we've decided to kick off Jettygirl's annual summer photo feature a bit early this year. The water's warming up, the sun's out and there's no May Gray to be seen. We'll be adding regularly to this photo feature over the next four months so check back often. We hope that all of you have a wonderful summer and for those of you on the globe who are entering winter shortly, we hope these images will keep you inspired as you're pulling on your 4/3 fullsuits. Enjoy!

Although the outside section gets the lion's share of points, anyone who's either watched or participated in a surf contest at Huntington Pier knows that you have to leave an exclamation point in the shorebreak to get the crowds on their feet. Although Huntington's sandy peaks seem fairly harmless, the shorebreak is anything but easy to navigate. After hopping through the notorious Huntington Hop zone, the final section looms up quickly, often without a chance to regain speed and much of the time in only a few inches of water. It's a tough place to stick your...
As we embark on another season of sunshine, we feel that there's no better way to celebrate summer than to showcase a few photos from our favorite time of year. Our goal here (more or less) is to post an image or two every few days so check back often to see what's new. We wish you all the best of times this summer and for those of you on the globe who are entering winter right now, I hope these will keep you stoked as you're pulling on your fullsuits. Enjoy!

These images were taken during the San Diego fires of October 2007. As dozens of firefighters raced down nearby streets, our family had packed away a small amount of treasures and documents for a quick escape from the flames which were two hillsides from our home. In the end, the winds shifted and smoke and ash rained down on us instead of burning embers. Sadly, hundreds of families in San Diego were not so lucky during this firestorm.
As often happens in life, there are two sides to every coin. In this case, the same fires that wrecked people's lives resulted in atmospheric conditions that...
The day the rains came I met Alexa Frantz, Chloe Buckley and Kelsey Harris at dawn for a few waves before the holidays. We were greeted with small but rideable surf and an empty lineup. Despite the 38 degree air temp and oddly behaving flock of pigeons that kept dive bombing the girls, they were out of their warm cars and into the ice water within minutes.
Nobody's going to score any cover shots out of a rainy day but it's still fun to set up the camera when there's a good crew with you. Momentary glimpses of sunlight, fighting gulls and crisp turns by the girls made the day worthwhile. -Chris...
