We are very pleased to announce that Holywell Bay ripper, lifeguarding legend and a bloke who has done so many Indo trips he personally knows the Denpasar luggage handlers (see above for proof), Lee ‘Trigger’ Griffin, was our unanimous winner!
Not only is Lee a great photographer he has his full ‘legend waterman’ black belt and his whole life revolves around surfing and the beach.
He has been shredding for many years and has visited Indo more times than anyone we know for decades. Usually in winter he is found in Bali pretending to ‘work’ on his brand ‘Kernow Boardriders’ which seems to involve a lot of time getting shacked at Keramas… Strange…
He also is a surf coach running Holywell Bay surf school, with brother Andrew.
You keeping up?
Lee took up photography 20 years ago when he got a little pickier about the conditions he wanted to surf in (Too much time ‘working in Indo’ mate! lol)
What all the judges loved about the photo and moment captured was that it seemed to sum up the surfing experience a lot of British and Irish surfers share. Cold, steely, windy, raw beauty.
