Cannelle Bulard, or, ‘A Portrait of a Surfer’

I met Cannelle Bulard in the French town of Anglet at a restaurant on the beach, eating moules-frites and drinking ice-cold Coca Cola. She approached the table with her board before introducing herself. I then asked her a few questions and teased her about whether she was any good. She shyly informed her audience that she had travelled most of the world on tours and recently become champion of Europe. Needless to say, the teasing stopped.

This shot was taken just after she came out of the water later that day. She had been surfing for a few hours.

I have since licensed the shot to Rip Curl, who sponsor Cannelle, for use on their site here.
