Photographer, film maker, big wave surfer Derek Dunfee gave a special presentation at the last club meeting Wednesday night at the VFW sharing some of his favorite photos and stories. It was inspiring to hear him share his love for his home surf break and the deep meaning Windansea Surf Club has in his life. Surfing Windansea since he was 12 years old, Derek expressed an appreciation for the deep roots of the club in surf history.
Enthralled with his vivid accounts of riding giant waves, harrowing near death experiences and an amazingly positive attitude in the face of substantial set backs and challenges, we are proud to have him part of the Windansea family.
Right now he is excited about the upcoming big wave season and his current DEKKA projects. Catch up with him on his website, DerekDunfee.com and on instagram: @derekdunfee
Some other cool facts, Derek was an XXL Award Winner, Surfer Poll Worst Wipeout Award recipient and has graced the cover of Surfer Magazine.
