Putting time, effort and creativity into producing images can be hard. Conceptualising a still and going to capturing it can be a trial and error of complete satisfaction or failure. (gotta learn somehow hey?)
My name is Maikel Kersbergen and I live in The Netherlands. After discovering surfing on a road trip to Biarritz somewhere back in the days, it became my main reason to travel.
The comfort of your hometown and community is such a good feeling. Being able to rock up to the beach where everyone knows each other in the water, or go to the local supo and not get through without seeing some of your mates, it’s a cool thing.
I'm hell interested in the quiet moment the surfers were having right before they jumped in the water so I've got a few photos of the solitude of individual sport.
Over 430 individual entrants across the six categories made our task even more difficult. Day-by-day, we created a shortlist of favourites as they hit our inbox. The same question kept blurting in our brains, “how are we going to choose the winners?”

Some are from North Sumatra, sitting on the boat shooting the most perfect right hander. Running along razor sharp reef this wave demands respect, one small mistake is costly.
Having grown up landlocked with the nearest shoreline at a considerable distance I guess my introduction to saltwatery spheres, coastal culture, oceanic occultism and the infinite joys of the sea can hardly be called an intuitive act.
When winter takes over, the swell rises, the water ripples a mess and you pat the dust off your gloves, hood and booties. To some, this is a dread. The water is less inviting and you sit in the car with your heater on, eyes procrastinating on the frosty liquid blues and yearning for the warmer days.
TEE-PEE is an art based surf label reigning from Shoalhaven Heads on the NSW south coast. The label has been kicking around since mid 2016 and was founded by Tom Page.
