People of surfing: Andy Bottomley, founder of the Oceano Surf School in Conil

Surfing world is full of passionate men and women. We see some of them fighting for the world title. But there are much more of them out there, in big surfing cities and small coastal towns doing different things than taking part in WSL tour. I’ve learned that their stories can be very interesting and inspiring. I would like to bring those stories to light. I’ll start with Andy, founder of the Oceano Surf School in Conil.

Cold Jersey morning

7 A.M. just after sunrise. We’re on one of the Jersey shore beaches. Poor surf, but amazing light. Cold. Perfect conditions for this photo shoot. Starring: beanie, sweatshirt and boat shoes – my favourite classics for autumn.

First time Rockaway

First time ever surfing on the East Coast. First all alone session. First time completely cold feet. Rockaway beach – still stoked when I think about that day.

Lake paddling session

When there’s no ocean around a local lake will do. This sunset paddling session was awesome!

Valuable baltic lessons

No problem with gaining speed and catching a wave but poor balance while paddling and not getting what sea is saying to me – these are the most important conclusions from my Hel peninsula surf trip.
