What allows Katlyn Durocher to capture stellar oceanic glimpses from behind the lens is her own deep passion for surfing. She’s the sort of person who will kick herself if she doesn’t suit up and go for broke, even if she has a good excuse — such as an absence of waves or an exploding water tank at home.
The Ucluelet-based multi-disciplinarian has a background in interior design — ask her about community space architecture and you’ll get an interesting earful — that helps her understand angles and framing with a different perspective than many surf image creators. Plus she has a strong sense of compassion and attentiveness to detail that infuses itself into her careful lens work.
She’s a strong supporter of her boyfriend, Howler’s Restaurant team rider Sebastian Duque from the shoreline, in evidence at the recent 2016 Rip Curl Pro in Tofino (an event you can get an inside glimpse of on Episode 30 of the Frequency Horizon podcast).
Katlyn lifted her camera to snap these images in the gallery at the top of the page, even scoring some great shots of legend Tom Curren ripping it up in Canadian waters.
