Half-English, half-Italian action photographer Lucia Griggi does more than simply stand in the sidelines to snap shots of surfers as they ride waves and perform their stunts and tricks. The dedicated photographer gets right into the action with the athletes to capture the moment they duck and dive into massive waves. 

“I love to be in or around water and surf. The feeling of being under a wave is such a beautiful feeling.” – Griggi

Pretty rad. Reminds me a bit of ‘The Underwater Project’ and/or ‘Breaking Waves.’

I'm a big fan of Lucia Griggi's work! She has such a unique approach to surf photography. Great selection of her stuff!

I have never come across Lucia Griggi before so this is someone new to follow! Although surf photographers have been shooting from underwater for a while now these still look amazing.
