Photography By Jeff Divine
Amassing one of the largest collections of surf photography in the world is no easy feat. But give a passionate photographer 45 years and endless beach terrain and you might do some damage. Such is the life of photographer Jeff Divine who’s four and a half decades of photographing the culture and lifestyle of surfers has taken him all over the world. Frequenting many of the earth’s most pristine destinations for surfing, an initial staff job for Surfer Magazine in 1971 launched the photographer’s career. Iconic shots of the beach, coupled with images of surfers on and off their boards serve to relate what it really felt like back then, when everything was groovy.
