The Red Bull Illume is an international photography contest showcasing the best of adventure and action sports. Below are some of our favourite surf photos from the category winners.
“…in -8°F (-22°C) weather with a foot of snow still accumulating, then waited all day for the ice shelf to break apart on the lake so the waves could come in. Finally, they did, and we surfed the best Great Lakes anyone’s ever seen. This shot was taken after four hours of surfing Lake Superior. The freshwater was freezing so quickly in the frigid air temps, we had to break off the ice forming on the back of the wetsuit as it froze.”Brian Nevins
