Home Cobian Footwear Sup Photo of the Year Contest May 2015 Edition Tomoko Okazaki: Traveling to Tohoku coastline where the huge Tsunami hit in 2011. still some remain of the building in the background but the water was more alive than ever and the sand was back to create some surf . Now the government is trying to build 15m seawall here all the way across the bay to "protect " from Tsunamis, people say they need the road to evacuate to higher ground first, no one lives there they all moved to higher ground so nothing to protect be hid the walls, it is more dangerous that you cannot see the tsunami coming because of the high walls, it will separate local people and kids from ocean. and it will effect the whole eco system, Tohoku still faces many problems and recovery . for this moment it was great to share a wave with my favorite furry animal to celebrate liveliness of the ocean.

Sup Photo Contest
Stacey Mac: Stacey Mac, SUP SURF Instructor at SUP SONAS in Boston & Costa Rica and COREBAN & KIALOA Ambassador, taking some leisurely meditation time away from the surf and away from being in the photo, so she could capture some peace at her SUP YOGA class at Sunset Lake in Braintree, Massachusetts, on her COREBAN Echo board! She’s in action “chilling” in this photo, I promise!
Yann Lauletta: Always on the search for the winter ramps.
