Wave of the Winter: New England… the top photo submissions

We received some outstanding submissions from this past winter for our first annual Wave of the Winter: New England contest. The idea was simple – we asked surfers and photographers in the New England region to submit their clips from this winter of what they believed to be the wave of the winter. The goal behind event was to encourage surfers to get out in the water this winter and for New England’s small but budding group of shooters to get involved, get creative and then come together to celebrate the results as a surfing community. This is what ESM had to say about the contest. 


Needless to say we received a some insane photos from some talented surfers and photographers. However we could not crown everyone a winner… so with the help of Cory Lopez – we were able to crown a winner (below).




Below are our top 100 photos (in no order) – click the image to view it larger. 


Huge thank you to O’Neill and Surftech for providing some epic prizes for the event, Whalers Brewery for hosting and keeping everyone’s thirst quenched all night, Flat waves for providing some mouth watering food, and The Z Boys for rocking out all night! Also huge thank you to our surf community for all of the continued support – we are excited to keep throwing these events and keeping folks stoked in and out of the water!


Stay tuned for information about next seasons Wave of the Winter: New England contest this fall. We’re going huge….
