EPK Collection brings you Tunnel Vision – a photographic print in collaboration with Surfline.
With its relatively easy, consistent, warm-water waves paired with a beautiful desert landscape, it’s no wonder the area around Cabo San Lucas has become a kind of surfing Disneyland. A bit dustier, sure, but no less fun. And if you’re on it, the lines for the rides are way shorter. Tunnel Vision captures the uniquely beautiful experience of surfing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Cabo is generally divided into three main areas: the south-facing East Cape, which lies to the east of San Jose Del Cabo and is most famous for its proliferation of fickle, silky right pointbreaks; the southeast-facing Costa Azul, just southwest of San Jose Del Cabo, right on the tip of the peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, which is known for its reasonably consistent – and crowded – rock reefbreaks; and the west-facing Pacific Coast, northwest of Cabo San Lucas, which is known best for its dependable beach and rock-reef breaks.
The Cabo area was surfed as early as the ’50s by traveling sailors and fishermen. Steve Bigler flew into a dusty airstrip in ’67 to film some footage for the ’68 surf flick Golden Breed, while Surfline’s Sean Collins began his lifelong exploration of the area in the late ’60s and early ’70s. But even though the Trans-Peninsular highway linking Baja Norte and Baja Sur was completed in 1973, the area didn’t really start getting popular until the mid ’80s. These days it’s full of both local Mexican surfers and twice as many full time expats; couple that with a few flights a day coming from SoCal and you’ve got a pretty solid surfing population on any given day.
