In honor of those that risk it all to bring us those precious and hard to capture images I set out to connect with a pioneer in the surf film industry and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to interview the one and only Sean Davey. We were lucky enough to have our friends at Epson help set up the interview with Sean.
