“Surfing soothes me, it’s always been a kind of Zen experience for me. The ocean is so magnificent, peaceful, and awesome. The rest of the world disappears for me when I’m on a wave” ~ Paul Walker

Dahican beach is a 7km long stretch of very fine sand and stunning blue Pacific waves, a surfer’s haven, and this used to be one of Mati’s best kept secrets. I love going home to my birthplace just to shoot the action on the stunning beach.
