Surf photographer and artist Zak Noyle isn’t your typical extreme sports athlete. Considered one of the best extreme surf photographers in the world, Zak lives his life on the edge. He is an avid outdoor photographer with a truly unique perspective on surf and sea. Based on the Hawaiian island of O’ahu, Zak spends countless hours in the water, creating dramatic imagery and artful interpretations of the world’s most magnificent ocean environment. Zak is an island boy with a lifelong love of the sea. He was introduced to a camera at an early age, and by the time he was a freshman at Punahou High School, Zak was already a published photographer in ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Transworld Surf and more. Surf photography requires a certain level of careful planning, hard work and a bit of sheer luck. He follows the wind and tide patterns throughout the week, notes changes in weather patterns or inconsistencies, and tips from fellow surfers are always welcome. For Zak, being in the water with his camera when the next big swell rolls through is a lifestyle, its an art, and its a passion.
