Portfolio: Surfing in Norway, Michael Konigshofer – Surfing LA

COLD enough for you? If not, you could always go on a trip with Michael Konigshofer who has a real penchant for a northern winter. Between 2016 and 2020 he visited Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands (Scotland, too, to be fair) in a bid to experience – and capture in photographs – a true northern winter. The result is his new book 6 Months in the Fridge, from which this image is taken. One day on the…

Global Cam Rewind: Europe, Santa Cruz, And…The Olympic Venue! – Surfing LA

Times like these don’t just fall out of the sky. Or…wait! Yes they do! This past week or so was a big win for the atmosphere, which stirred up a massive fuss all over the joint.

I was seven when I started to surf every day — my dad helped me become the surfer I am today. Eventually I started competing, and I loved it and entered more and more competitions. What’s the surf scene like…

The secret’s out and on the screen about Irish surfing’s remarkable origin story – Surfing LA

Bray’s seafront may now abound with Lycra-clad fitness bunnies and avo-on-toast eateries but, despite its recent Californification, it is still hard to picture it as the birthplace of Irish surfing. Rossnowlagh, Strandhill, Portrush and Tramore – these are the wind-swept beaches that spring to mind when you think about wave riding in Ireland, not a sheltered stony bay in Wicklow, best known for attracting day-trippers from Dublin. Yet Kevin Cavey, whose family once ran the local Royal Starlight Hotel, can…
