Hayden is from a little coastal town named Ulladulla on the South Coast.
He was introduced to surfing at the age of eleven thanks to his older brother chopping up his bodyboard with an axe and throwing it in the wood fire pile.
"Having an upbringing in the water on the South Coast was great it had plenty variety of waves and great people to surf with all the time."
Now living in Cronulla, Sydney there's a great variety of heavy slabs that make Haydo feel right at home.
The Central Coast of New South Wales has been Ian's home for 24 years. First picking up a surfboard at 11 years of age, Ian never looked back with the ocean at his door step.
His passion for photography has evolved and grown over time through travel, seeing different cultures and exploring new places.
Holding fort in WA, Jake has built a reputation as one for all conditions. Not one to shy away from the heaving slabs accustomed to WA, but also showing the technical know-how when it comes to his nearby beachies.
Jess Grimwood grew up surfing on the Central Coast. "I'll always come back home, but i've found my true passion is exploring the oceans of the world and the different cultures that come with them."
It was in high school Jess first had the chance to travel, competing on the WQS, an outlet which has helped her become the person she is today.
"I'm also a full time firefighter stationed in Sydney right in the heart of the City. Firefighting gives me my adrenalin fix and helps support my ocean addiction as well as being a positive contributor to our world."
The youth of Jye saw him grow to surf the points of the Gold Coast at Burleigh.
With brother Kyal, the two shifted from state to state with Jye finding his ground in the freezing waters of South Australia.
The warmer waters are missed but the itch to find thick ledges grew more and more and nowadays Jye has a name for himself down South for searching and travelling to the unknown.
Kerry Langdon Down
From an early age Kerry fell in love with all things aquatic. Fond memories of beach days with the family and holidays along Australia's coastline to beautiful remote locations.
As an "Australian grommet" Kerry started surfing from a young age which quickly became an obsession. He started bodyboarding with his lifelong friends through school years before breaking his back at a heavy local reef. After rehabilitation he transitioned to surfing as it was less painful for his back which gave a new inspired look on life.
Since then Kerry has been drawn to the ocean on all different crafts, whether it be bodysurfing, long boarding, bodyboarding, surfing or swimming. A close friend of Kerry's then introduced him to photography. Instantly he was hooked and thought of capturing the love for the ocean from behind the lens.
It has been 10 years since he first shot from the water with an old EOS 5 Film camera and a lot has changed with the digital revolution, some for the better and some for the worse, but what hasn't changed is Kerry's passion for being in the water.

The young, gifted and free agent that is Owen Milne, is somewhat a veteran in the photography/cinematography world. At only 18 years of age, Owen has already boasted two front covers for magazines and his work has been recognised by many. The humble minded teenager is always one to produce a clip or get the shot that you were not expecting and because of this is now working alongside many well-known brands and surfers. The future is bright for Owen and his noble uprising is one to make way for...
Hailing from the Sunshine Coast, Pat O’leary rides logs, timber alaias and anything in between. Competing around the globe on the LQS introduced Pat to a world of adventures, a unique lifestyle and a list of friends from all walks of life. From all this comes a yearning for inspiration and a desire for new and different experiences. The ocean, has always and will always be the one place where there are no rules, no judgement and no limit to possibilities.
Growing up in Esperance and then later moving to Margret River at the age of 15, Tyler is still relatively new to the scene.
With such a unique place that produces so many good surfers, big wave chargers, slab hunters, soul surfers, comp guys and pro groupies.....What is Tyler?
"I'm not really sure yet, but i love the diversity and that when it comes to surfing you can be whatever you want to be...and that's cool".
