    2011 was certainly a good year to be in Tahiti. One of the best water photographers in the biz, Zak Noyle, left his home island of Oahu with a small crew bound for Teahupoo. Talent is great when it comes to photography, but a little bit of luck never hurts either. Nature provided for this shot with a perfect peeling tube ridden by Christian Redongo, and the kind of rainbow that postcards are made of. Photo: Noyle

    Autumn splendor

    The wave is so long that sometimes you can pull in right off the ledge and get two or three barrels per wave. This is Kalani Chapman kicking out over the Shish Kebab section. These guys are riding such big boards, and they’re going so fast that sometimes the only way to kick out of a wave is to kick way out, which is what Kalani’s doing here. When it’s bigger and high tide, this section is actually pretty deep, but as the tide drops it gets really shallow, really fast. Cloudbreak

    Brotherly dynamics are different in every family, but the Florences are on an entirely different level. At any time they could be chasing perfect barrels at any of the far corners of the world, but lately, John John has had to take himself out of the equation to compete full time. “As brothers,” says Nathan Florence (pictured here), “we’re all really close and hang out all the time. We’re all best friends. But when we do get split up and are on different trips, we always try to stay in touch. Jo

    “We were desperate for some decent waves after not having surfed for weeks,” said photographer Zak Bush. “Mikey DeTemple and I had been trolling the Internet for a promising surf report somewhere in the Northeast. I got a call from him late on a Thursday afternoon after he'd been skunked in Jersey for the day. ‘I just spoke to Nick LaVecchia,’ said Mikey, ‘it could be fun up there tomorrow. But we have to drive into a blizzard.’" Photo: LaVecchia
