This shot was taken by the legend of all legends, my inspiration to shoot those with style. Ron Stoner, Surfer magazines staff photographer unfortunaley dropped off the radar in the 70's and was never seen again. He was declared dead in the early 90's but left a legacy of amazing shots of a period in surfing that was transitional and dare I use the word being British 'radical' in changes both social and cultural. His book of images is called Photo:Stoner and should be on every surfers bookshelf.
