We’ve been following SA Rips on Instagram for sometime having never really known anything about him. His creative, spooky images spoke volumes though and it doesn’t hurt that some of the worlds best head down to isolated South Aus to shoot with him. Really though he doesn’t need surfers at all to be one of the most captivating photographers out there right now.



“I find shots like this more interesting than shots of guys in the barrel. After watching Craig for a bit, I anticipated his kick out from the start of the wave. The photo feels pretty cosmic, with the spray looking like stars. When Craig first came down this way, he was a little bit sheepish at certain spots. But, once he saw that most of the locals are pretty mellow, he quickly got comfortable.”
