Summer Surf Series by Brook McKeon
All the pics are in Victoria and have something to do with surfing, but I was also trying to make a bit of a documentation of what these locations were like in the summer of 2018/19 as the changing world is making the sharing of locations easier and we are seeing special locations flocked to like never before, which will only continue... maybe to the point of themepark frenzy at some places that are not capable of handling the growing numbers of visitors who are just there for a smash n grab and aren't so concerned with the ongoing welfare of the local environment. I think there used to be something special about finding a new location through a friend... and sharing your spots with them, in person. There used to be layers... everyone knew the spot with the 200 capacity car park, fewer people knew the other spots, and only the locals and special guests knew the secret spots. As those layers become less relevant I don't want to mourn the loss, just wanted to photograph some of the lesser known spots in their still-kinda-relatively-uncrowded existence in 2018/19.
