Nicholas Hoermann has been taking pictures of the ocean since the age of 9. He’s from O’ahu, so he knows a thing or two about the surf lifestyle and his pictures capture it with striking realness. When you’re a photographer, there’s a delicate balance between surfing the waves and photographing them, but when people ask him why he shoots instead surfs when the waves are pumping, Hoermann simply replies “I love seeing everyone catch waves and the smile on their faces is just as good as catching the wave myself.”
And this gallery is almost as good as being in the water.
