A beautifully designed, full-colour collection of the best Australian surfing photographers and their award-winning work

From the drama of Shipsterns to the cyclonic fury of an east coast low; sunrise at Cloudbreak and rainbows at Teahupo’o, this is an awe-inspiring collection of award-winning photographs showcasing all the energy, beauty and drama of the ocean. It reveals surfers like Gilmore, Florence, Fanning and Slater in their element and the power of a moment caught in time. Featuring the winners and finalists of the Nikon/Surfing Australia Surf Photo of the Year Award from 2013 to 2017 … these are the best of the best.

It’s one thing to have an image transport you to a different place, but to actually make you feel like you’re on a surfboard riding in the barrel behind one of the world’s best surfers on a gnarly wave is another level of “best“!’ – Stephanie Gilmore



My View:

What an inspirational book! No, I am not about to grab a surf board and leap into the water ,cancel that image:)  but flicking through these awesome images made me want to pick up a paint brush and explore colour, light, texture! Stunning photography, a kaleidoscope of colours and then some!


This book would make a superb gift for the surfer, the nature lover or the appreciator of fine art.

  1. Oh, I’ll bet those are gorgeous ‘photos, Carol! What a great idea for a book, too! I’m sure that, among other things, it’d make a great gift.
