ANNOUNCING Northern Exposure: a photo comp for the entire European winter and eligible to anyone in Europe. Running from November 1st to March 31st (yes we will backdate the entries). The prize is 8 nights in the Turtle Bay Resort, including flights and car hire. Not just the snapper but the surfer too, courtesy of the generous bods at theperfectwave.
The comp will be judged by an independent panel from a shortlist we pull together over the winter months using the following criteria: “An aesthetic representation of winter, encompassing: scarcity, commitment, power and vulnerability in critical cold water conditions.”
Basically we are seeking those images which produce a visceral reaction, one which jumps out of the computer, trusses you up in ropes of ice and waterboards you within an inch of your life.
You can upload your pics HERE and we’ll consider all images taged with the Northern Exposure label and uploaded between November 1st and March 31st to be valid within Europe, including the Mediterranean.
- If possible caption the photos, tell us: who or what is in the shot and what happened during the wave/session/swell.
- All photos need to be 1000 pixels or more at their widest point.
- You can add to the selection if we miss any using the ‘Northern Exposure’ tag.
It may be too late for the ASP Big Wave World Tour, but Dungeons lit up.
Conor Maguire harks towards a time when the cold and dark wraps back in and the lows deepen, spinning thick ropes of swell towards Ireland.
Italy has waves and Sardinia has some of the best spots, places you would not believe. Leonardo Fioravanti knows that better than most...
From the Caribbean to Nova Scotia (and maybe even Europe) the forecast is for a medium sized swell to grace your local beach.
Like a lot of the waves in the edit, this one is a grower. Dusty Payne and Yadin Nicol make light work of things you'd sail on by.
Highlight of the day was the 17-year-old brother of local legend Manoa. He blew everyone away.
