This world is filled with cracks, and things tend to slip through them. The humble publication known as SURFING Magazine is your everyday fault line — our cracks are grander than a canyon. Consequently, beautiful photos tend to slip and slide into our gorge of disregard. But a few weeks ago, we decided to send a search and rescue crew into that gorge. We asked our lovely staff of Senior Photographers to pick their five favorite unpublished images of the great year of 2013. The twenty-five images above come from the minds and lenses of DJ Struntz, Steve Sherman, Corey Wilson, Brent Bielmann and Duncan Macfarlane. These gentleman also went so far as to caption them for your absorption. Now don’t you dare overlook them.
