Cliff Kapono is the ultimate subject for a surf photographer. His style is fluid and extremely photogenic, which makes for some great imagery regardless of the conditions. I shot these photos of Cliff during a late afternoon session last winter.
Cliff just finished up an amazing short film for Surfer Magazine + RED Camera's film series, REDirect. Cliff along with his friend and fellow filmmaker, Jensen Young-Sik, created a breathtaking piece that tells an ancient story about the first interaction between Native Hawaiians and Native Americans on the California coast. I highly recommend watching Cliff and Jensen's film, WATU.
