Ray Collins feels more at home floating in saltwater with his camera than anywhere on land. A humble waterman who has bodysurfed around the globe, Ray pursues freezing the ephemeral relationship between water and light which is what drives and inspires him to clamber out of bed in the dark each morning to celebrate the sun rising over the sea. Ray's work has been featured by Apple, Vogue, Wired, New York Post, Yahoo, CNN, ABC (USA), ESPN, The Australian, Huffington Post & BuzzFeed and can regularly be found in Art, Lifestyle, Sport and Photography Magazines around the world.
My signature Ecto Glass11 All Rounder Model - The drive it provide while scooping and moulding yourself is second to none! The Ecto helps be 'in' the wave as much as 'on' the wave.
What does bodysurfing mean to you?
It means stripping everything back, and being able to ride pure energy vibrations.
