Jeff Divine has been capturing the sport of surfing along with its culture and lifestyle for over 45 years. Growing up in La Jolla, California, he began taking photos of his surfer friends in the ’60s before working for several surf magazines, and traveling the globe to the best surfing destinations around the world. He’s currently the photo editor at The Surfer’s Journal, has amassed one of the largest archives of surf photography that exist.
Here we get a look at some of his images shot in the ’70s in both California and Hawaii. His photos really do a great job of channeling the relaxed, care-free and fun lifestyle of the era where all that mattered was the beach, the sun, the waves, hangin’ loose with your custom psychedelic surfboard, your bros, and of course, your babes.
