New Jersey-based photographer Ryan Struck recently went to Tahiti for two months with his surfer friends and took some awesome footage during his stay. We’ve been sharing his photos and videos on social media and now we’d like to post them to our blog. His underwater shots are incredible! We hope to see more from him.
This first video is a compilation of random sights and sounds around the island of Tahiti. Here’s what Ryan had to say about the video: “The sound bites and video clips of a trip to Tahiti as seen/heard on foot and fin, by thumb and bus. The most beautiful destination and inspiring place to visit. Have a look at just a few things however random they may have been.” Please be advised that there is some explicit language used in a few of the clips.
This next one, called “Visual Trips Over Shred Flicks,” features underwater footage taken at Tahiti’s famed surf spot, Teahupo’o. Here’s what Ryan had to say about it: “A short surf clip I managed to scrape together in between shooting still photographs from a trip to Teahupoo in Tahiti. Surfers include: Dillon Mincher, Fergal Smith, Nick Gibbs, Ryan Gallina, Nahuel Amalfitano, Rob Brown, Thorto, Jonathan Mincher, Josie Graves, PJ Raia. This isn’t the mind blowing huge surf you may be accustomed to seeing from the End of The Road, it’s more of a visual trip than shred flick. Enjoy.”
Finally, we’ve included some of our favorite pictures below. To see more of his photography, check out his blog and maybe drop him a line. Thanks Ryan!
