Synopsis

Incredible Waves An Appreciation of Perfect Surf by Chris Power

This breathtaking volume is a collection of the best recent work by 20 top surf photographers including Clark Little, Brian Bielmann, Chris Burkard, Russell Ord, DJ Struntz, Jeff Flindt, Ray Collins and Tim McKenna. Among the most spectacular shots are images of big-wave breaks such as Pipeline, Cloudbreak, The Right, Shipstern's Bluff and Teahupoo - waves which are as dangerous as they are enticing, for photographers as well as surfers. The photos are accompanied by essays about the timeless allure of perfect waves and the forces that create them, plus a discussion about current trends in surf photography. Readers interested in improving their own photographic skills will benefit from the technique sections in the book which offer tips and advice for getting better shots. Everything from basic composition to underwater photography is covered, along with tips for getting the best from board-mounted miniature cameras such as the GoPro. The photos in Incredible Waves are guaranteed to thrill surfers, longboarders and bodyboarders alike...in fact everyone who loves looking at images of the ocean at its most spectacular.

Reviews

'This book gets you thinking about waves - and surf photography - in new ways. It starts out with a feast of fresh angles and achingly perfect lineups, interspersed with quotes from some of surfing's most dedicated devotees. But then, instead of leaving the reader hanging with gratuitous images of saline perfection, it guides you through the actual process of capturing perfect wave images yourself. It's a toolkit cleverly disguised as a coffee table book, so beautifully presented that you never even realise you're learning something along the way.'
- Bradley Hook, Surfd.com

'A kaleidoscopic collection of beautifully reproduced, breathtaking images.'
- Gregor Leigh, Cape Town Argus Book of The Month (March 2014) - Coast Magazine

'The perfect gift for any surfer, photographer or surf lover.' - ZigZag Magazine

'Stunning' - Tracks Magazine

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
