BEHIND PAGE ONE - BEN BUGDEN
This was the best day of surf I've ever witnessed with my own eyes. The kind of day you realise exactly why all the Indonesian trailblazers got hooked on the area and what drove them to explore further and further afield. For this shot I climbed up on top of the captain's quarters of our boat with my 50mm lens, and managed to capture Chippa Wilson sitting in the hole. What I love about the shot though is that it conveys the whole amazing scene. The sky, the trees, the bay, the action and the next wave looming, full of promise.
