One quality that was crazy about Andy was that he never talked bad about anyone’s surfing. No one. Not even to me, personally. There’s not one person on that planet who could say otherwise. He thought everyone was an amazing surfer, from Kelly all the way down to that guy that’s just learning how to surf. He never had a negative thing to say about someone’s surfing, which is pretty crazy. Most athletes talk shit about other athletes. - Lyndie Irons

a selection of photographs from david hall’s beneath cold seas, taken in the waters off british columbia. through state of the art photographic equipment and innovative techniques, david successfully challenges the widespread belief that cold water marine life is dull and uninteresting.
with temperatures that typically stay about ten degrees above freezing all year long, strong tidal currents, and the limited visibility that comes with cold water - green hues and increased particulate matter - david uses a strobe to captures warmer colours and gets withing ten feet (versus one hundred feet in tropical waters) of his subject.
photos, in order, of a moon jellyfish, a cross jellyfish, a lion’s mane jellyfish, an opalescent nudibranch with colonial tunicates,a northern kelp crab, a lion’s mane jellyfish, and sockeye salmon

The Silent Evolution - Jason deCaires Taylor
More than 400 of the permanent sculptures have been installed in recent months in the National Marine Park of Cancún, Isla Mujeres, and Punta Nizuc (map of the region) as part of a major artwork called “The Silent Evolution.” The installation is the first endeavor of a new underwater museum called MUSA, or Museo Subacuático de Arte.
Created by Mexico-based British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, the Caribbean installation is intended to eventually cover more than 4,520 square feet (420 square meters), which would make it “one of the largest and most ambitious underwater attractions in the world,” according to a museum statement
