This came in the mail…
What can I say, yiasou brah!
"Ela brother…how are you? Man your website is awesome and your photos are soooo great…
Looove the photos dude…
I am Greek, born in Queensland Australia, in Brisbane near the Gold Coast..(Kirra, Snapper Rocks etc.)
It is soooo great to know that there are heaps of Hellines riding waves in the mother land…
It is my dream to surf in Greece, then come in and have some fasoulada at a taverna after my surf ! : )
Tell me something bro, are there any waves in Rhodos? My cousins said that Prasonisi ‘ehi surf' but I dont know….
I might be coming to Greece this winter so if I do I might swing past Tinos and meet some Greek surfers!
Yiasu file, and congratulations on the great photos dude…
This summer I managed to get some time to go out to Tinos island. I had never taken pictures in that spot before so I was eager to explore it. While i was there, I met Kostas Migkos, a surfer that stands out straight away. We chatted and decided to do some shots the next day. We woke up early in the morning when the line up is empty and the light is proper and tried our chemistry. Migkos surfs with so much passion and he never lets a wave go unridden. His is a styler on the board and a chilled-out straight up guy. He surely sets the local surfing level higher. Hope you score some more waves out there bro!
We tried that move a few times, this is our best shot.
This is one of my best shots of that session. Totally in focus, eyes fixed on the wave, perfect positioning next to the surfer. I need a new wide-angle lens though.
The spot. Kolybithra is on the north side of the island and the line up is on the side next to the rocks at the end of the beach. It’s one of the most beautiful spots in Greece.
Just out of the water, my Viper fins.
A newly re-descovered folder on my HD from a session in Vouliagmeni last winter. This guy whom I have seen in the water a few times is very fluent with really nice style.
On a day that I wasn’t really had it flowing, the light was just coming and going doing my life a little bit harder. I managed to get some half-decent shots, like this guy bailing out on a close-out, having completed his 5 second high-value fun.
Nikos Chichimelis is a good friend and such a funny guy to have him near on the line-up. He hardly ever missed a solid system working anywhere in Greece and he’ll surf anything of any size. I’ve witnessed that in Andros!
