June Gloom: A 30-Day Photo Feature by Chris Grant
JettyGirl Art, Photography & Culture

Unlike last year's "anti-June Gloom" feature, this time around we're going to be supportive of the month of clouds and gray. After all, summer starts in June and that's reason enough to celebrate. As reliable as the gloomy weather patterns are each year, the month of June is also surprisingly sprinkled with moments of brilliant sunshine. In this feature we're showcasing a little bit of both. Some shots have sun while others have nothing but gray, just like the month itself. Click on any of the thumbnails above to launch larger versions of each photo.

1 Huntington Beach's Sara Taylor, a few thousand dollars richer after her VQS finish, kicks off the month of June with a massive backhand smash.
2. On this dreary yet oddly warm morning, Kyla Langen pauses for a stretch before paddling out for some cold ones.
3. On this late afternoon, Kelly Nicely combines spray paint with nature's own palette of color.
4. Florida's Amy Nicholl in a perfect example of June Gloom. The solution? Throw on a red wetsuit and lay into some colorful turns.
5. At a spot that rarely works, Kenzie Kessler pushes her boundaries.
6. How many of you had math professors in college who could lean into a big frontside hack? Dr. Amber Puha enjoying the freedom that summer vacation brings.
7. You don't have to look at the latest World Tour rankings to locate a surfing champion. Oftentimes, they're paddling right next to you. Danielle Burt.

8. Kaitlin Maguire cutting back after dark. When I think of Kaitlin's surfing, I think of pure power ...but she also surfs with amazing style and grace.
9. In an era of higher and higher altitudes, the area below the lip often gets ignored. However, those who know its magic use it frequently. Diane Mattison, flying.
10. When your spray shoots up instead of out, you know it's a crisply placed turn. Karina Petroni chooses to whip a clean hook off the whitewater.
11. How is it possible to hold an edge, to hit the lip, to paddle even? Kassia Meador, one of the few surfers who know the magic of sliding an alaia.
12. There's nothing better than finding some A-frames at your local beach. Jenny Quam loving life at home.
13. Lulu Erkeneff in very typical June gloom conditions hits one off the top and eyes the wall lining up in front of her. Cloudy but fun in South Orange County.
14. While filming for an upcoming project, Pandora Decoster brought French style and footwork to a surprisingly sunny day at one of SD's best longboard spots.
15. You don't actually have to be physically large to throw down a big turn. Tiny grom, Meah Collins, lays into a fun right and lights up an otherwise gray day.
16. For a full appreciation of Ashley Lloyd's surfing, you must see it live or on video. Her intricate use of footwork and the switchstance roundhouse is beautiful.
17. The heart on her board points to the recent loss of her brother. Surfing with purpose and love, Alexa Frantz blasts the lip and points her board toward heaven.
18. With a beautiful wall lining up in front of her, a local surfer enjoys some glassy solitude before school gets out for the summer.
19. Nage' Melamed throws an arc on a little, midday right that will allow a half-dozen similar turns. Nage' is a powerful young surfer with a very bright future.
20. Huntington Beach's Jenna Balester takes the short trip to Newport and scores some fun, onshore rights. Power is a trademark of Jenna's backhand surfing.
21. Chelsea Williams in a "guess-what-she-did-next?" photo. Did she torque it into a vertical blast or unweight into a backside boardslide?
22. Not big fans of SUP, but we're huge fans of these two. On a tiny day when even longboarding was difficult, Prue Jeffries and Linda Benson go for a paddle.
23. We've frankly never seen a surfer with better technical ability than Courtney Conlogue.
24. We're still partial to spray-throwers like Carpinteria's Bo Stanley. If you paddle out when she whips a frontside snap, you're going to get soaked.
25. This spring we finally caught up with 2004 World Champ, Summer Romero. She hasn't missed a step. Effortless style in North San Diego County.
26. If there was ever a longboard/shortboard combo tour, Kelia Moniz would surely find herself in competition for the title. She rips at both!
27. Laguna Beach's Taylor Pitz has an amazing frontside snap. Even on an average at her local spot, her energetic hacks turn heads in the lineup.
28. Some of Lakey Peterson's turns bear a remarkable resemblance to another Santa Barbara icon, Tom Curren.
