Changing the Tides by Zak Noyle

"Changing of the Tides"


Zak Noyle is holding a contest to find the next great local Hawai'i surf photographer!

I shoot photos because of my love for the ocean. This would not be possible without
the love and support from my family, friends and partners. "Changing of the Tides by Zak
Noyle" was created with the hope of giving the next generation of surf photographers the
support, help, opportunities and platform to rise up and showcase their talents on the world
stage, with the goal of making this a career.  ~Zak Noyle

From Tahiti to Japan to San Fransisco and more, the perfect waves were not easy to find. After a year of traveling the world, and getting pounded by wave after wave, I finally got all of my shots together and hand chose these specific images as my favorites.
