2. @matt_broomall_1 | Margate, New Jersey

4. @eijiphoto | La Jolla Tide Pools, CA

Eiji checks in this summer with an absolutely jaw-dropping self-portrait shot thanks to an assist from @enchantingpixels. A little post-production magic—there was a 2x6 board spanning the rocks that was later edited out. Very cool!

Shades: Tipsy Goat Polarized

 

5. @iamjamesanthony | Haiti, Hispaniola 

Jumping off boats into azure Haitian waters, all while rocking a sick, zero-curvature mirrored look? Just a day in the life for James.

6. @j_k_youmans | Super Girl Surf Pro, Oceanside, CA 

Sun, surf, and a cold brew—Jordan hit upon a tough-to-beat combo while drinking in the fierce competition at last month’s Super Girl Surf Pro in nearby Oceanside. Peep our recap of the event!
