Bear and The Florida Springs

The naturally occurring springs in Florida have been a longtime spot for Senior Photographer and friend Bryan Soderlind (Bear) to visit with friends and pro riders to collect epic photography in the surreal atmospheres the springs have to offer. He's been doing it a bunch, but it seems like every time we run a photo or do something with one of his now famous trips to the springs, the photos continue to keep getting better and better. Over the past few years he has spent a lot of time underwater and has honed in on creating some of the most unreal images we've ever seen. His underwater shots have won Photo of the Year honors at Wake Awards, grabbed the cover of our Magazine last year and seen elsewhere in the media like Outdoor magazine.

This Fall, with the season in the rearview mirror and time on their hands to spare Bear took Reed Hansen, Parks Bonifay, Nick Taylor and Ben Horan out to a secret spring that he wanted to showcase and do some other ideas that he had rattling around in his head. Check out the full gallery below and take a peek into the constantly 73 degree underwater world that Bear lives in. Congrats to the winners of the Instagram contest and a special thanks to Supra Boats, Ronix, Remote Wakeskates and Fox.
