WE ARE BACKWASH
Kazuyoshi wins the award for the most stoked Japanese person I met on my travels for the current print feature. A talented photographer on the scene in the Aichi Prefecture, he kept me connected as we scored fun waves with the crew down there.
Gracious and kind with camera always in hand and the biggest Cheshire cat smile across his face, this guy summed up my time in Japan. Below, a selection of his work.
Backwash Issue Two is a surf anthology featuring Japan, the photography of Chris Burkard and Sergio Villalba, Hamish Laing and Woody Gooch. Kalani Lattanzi swims at Nazare, whilst Amy Kotch surfs barrels whilst pregnant and John Peck knee paddles out as he has done since 1958.Purchase
