Part 3 of 4 in a series by Tanner Guduaskas.
I feel so attached to the stories of these guys throughout this year, really stoked on the way these Polaroids came out. Tomas Tomas Hermes and Ana Romanio
are the epitome of a dream team. Tomas was inside the qualifying bubble
last year, got injured freesurfing at Rockies, then had to watch his
spot slip out from under him. To see him come back with the full steam
and qualify was so damn inspiring. We call him the tomahawk because when
he hits the lip his hands always go up just like a hawk coming in for
Mikey Feb is the most rad. Supernatural is a word that I feel fits well. Reminds
me of Jimi Hendrix cause he is so mellow as a person, then when he
stands up on a surfboard he transforms from a mild demeanor to
FREESTYLE! Mikey is my favorite surfer to watch surf a heat I really
hope he gets the call up on one of the alternate spots next year.
then Pat Boy!
I love this shot because we were training a lot this winter and Pat was
putting in the time on the grind to get the shine. Beach runs, crawls
and swims, Pat was hammering it. Being in his corner, it was cool to see
his hard work pay off. So fricken stoked to see him back on tour!
