3/15/2011: Luke Davis, Oceanside, US
This photo of Californian Luke Davis, our favourite new-romantic, was shot this morning at Oceanside pier through a 600mm lens by a very clever American man named Peter Taras. It was taken at 8.45 am Californian time.
Seventeen-year-old Luke’s got a slightly unusual but totally awesome surfing style. Considering how young n’ gangly he is, kid’s got some power. And polished fundamentals, as we’ve said before.
It’s become increasingly rare that an on-rail shot makes its way into the daily Full Frames section, but there’s something so classic about this it’s worthy of a slot. Timeless as this is, there’s still something new about it. And we love future-classic.
