Meet Ed: in 2004, at the age of 30, Ed Fladung jettisoned his life in Los Angeles and moved to Mexico; along the way he learned to surf.
“I first picked up a camera to start documenting my life for family and friends back home. Since then my photography has become an extension of my surfing life. Living in a semi-rural area, the surf breaks I explore are often un-crowded which allows me to share my version of surf culture’s quieter existence. The subtle moments in between sets or just after a session are just as important as raging tube shots. I spend a lot of time waiting for the light, the ocean and the scenery around me to come together.”
