Bodysurfing - images, video and more...



There are those in the bodysurfing community who unselfishly devote their time and energy to the preservation and documentation of the sport of bodysurfing. Below are some links to the websites of some of these individuals... much appreciation to these photographers and individuals who continue to perpetuate and chronical our sport… spreading the word both visually to those who would otherwise, never discover the stoke and beauty of bodysurfing... and by bringing the bodysurfing community together in the form of world class contest events.

The ocean's waves and shapes, along with those who ride them (or would attempt to) are my favorite subjects. I am especially focused on capturing what I like to call "Nature's Performance Art," at California's Wedge, a sometimes extrordinary showplace of wave action. The Wedge segment of the site represents but a small fraction of such images I've photographed and archived over the years. -Ron Romanosky
