COASTALWATCH | BEST OF THE WEB

Red Bull's Chasing The Shot series brings us the story of Leroy Bellet, a young photographer from the South Coast of NSW with a unique penchant for pain and perspective. Three years in the making, the mini-doco follows Leroy's journey on the way to capturing what Kelly Slater called one of the greatest photos of all time, and certainly the best surf photo taken in the last few years, at Teahupo'o, Tahiti – a behind the surfer shot of Michel Bourez getting absolutely barrelled out of his mind. This is fascinating viewing, a must watch film about surf photography in the modern era.
