Philip Pruitt Erwin

My passion for Surfing, Photography and living life to the fullest has taken me down many paths through the years.

As a young man, I surfed the East Coast from Virginia Beach, Folly Beach S.C. and various breaks down to Sebastian Inlet, Florida while serving in the United States Navy. My greatest session came in the late ’70s at South Padre Island surfing Hurricane Allen. It was so heavy we had to walk the jetties battling the waves crashing on us. The knarliest, largest pumping drop-in I ever made. Rolling forward many years and I’ve been blessed; burning images from young Groms at Huntington Pier to Pro Surfing in Hawaii.

I ’ve been published as an Assigned Professional Rodeo photo journalist and enjoyed shooting Motorsport Racing to name a few. Located in Southern California, I have created this website as an opportunity for you to purchase photo-work of yourselves living your dreams. Whether you are chasing the warm Southern Swells rolling through the Southern Cali Coast or stepping into your cold-water skin for the buoy dancing Northern Swell’s in winter, I hope to see you in the lineup and that you enjoy my work.
