For a new project I’ve been photographing members and friends of the Black Surfers Collective. Here are the latest pictures, shot a couple days ago at El Porto Beach, of the effervescently charismatic Mimi “Surfnista” Miller .
Tomorrow, Saturday June 14th, the BSC is celebrating Nick Gabaldon Day at “The Inkwell” (beach at Bay St.) in Santa Monica. Gabaldon was one of the first surfers of color in California. Events included free surf lessons, screening of the Gabaldon documentary 12 Miles North, and a visit from L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. More info about the event here.
