Carlos Santana

Carlos Santana is an unlikely young addition to the surf photographer scene. Growing up miles from the beach in a Mexican American enclave in Southern California near Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm, Carlos wasn’t brought up at the beach. “I didn’t see the ocean till I was about 7 years old and the first time my parents barely let me set my feet in the water.” He stumbled upon photography as a late teen and has been hooked ever since. Today at only 22, he’s progressing with every swell and beginning to take some of the most dramatic water shots we’ve seen.
