"Moonrise over the surf in Nova Scotia. I was pretty blown away on how good the setups are in Nova Scotia. This place is really photogenic for surf photos. Hopefully I can score it good on my next trip out there." Caption and Photo by @trevorpikhart
"Big, frothy, barrels. Always scary to shoot." Caption and Photo by @trevorpikhart
"Small, clean, barrels. Always fun to shoot." Caption and Photo by @trevorpikhart
"Fall sunrise. The colors were so beautiful this morning, but the surf was pretty bad. So I decided to slow my shutter speed down to smooth out the water and pull more colors into the image. Really stoked on how this came out." Caption and photo by @trevorpikhart
"Lagundri Bay, Sorake Beach, Nias. This wave is no joke and has so much power. But it’s so perfect. You can get the wave of your life, or the beating of your life out there." Photo and caption by @trevorpikhart
"My first trip to Indonesia was pretty unreal. We lucked into having pumping surf the entire time I was there. My friends and I surfed this spot for 2 days straight with not another person in sight. It’s what every surfer wants in a surf trip." Photo and caption by @trevorpikhart
Trevor Pikhart's takeover continues: "You can’t really beat the conditions in the Fall as a surf photographer. Warm, offshore winds, and epic morning light make for some dreamy photos. Definitely my favorite time of year to be in the water."

We are super excited to be giving the reigns of our Instagram over to super talented photographer Trevor Pikhart for a little while. Here's what @trevorpikhart has to say about his first image: "For the next few days, I’m going to share some of my favorite images from this past year. All my images are based in or around the ocean. This image is from a super clear day at my local spot, the visibility was so good, you didn’t even need goggles." Photo by @trevorpikhart
Dune Newhouse @duneagi does a lot for us here at Freedom Artists. Besides doing most of our photography, he's also happy to help us pack boxes of gear in the warehouse when it's 100 degrees. He's also, as shown here, more than happy to pack some tubes when the water is warm and the waves are pumping. Our hero!

We had such an epic time at this years Malibu Invitational. Usually launching airs on a skateboard, FA family member @rustyhook12000 took to the sky with a huge double grab over a perfect first point section for arguably the best maneuver of the contest. Thanks so much for the killer weekend to everyone involved, especially to @brandonrichards @valsurf1962 @lyon_herron @therasurf and everyone that came out! We love you @lyon_herron!
Tomorrow is the start of our favorite weekend of the year! Come hang out with us all weekend at the 9th annual Malibu Invitational. This is always a killer event with some of the best surfers around coming together to compete and support our boy Lyon Herron @lyon_herron and @therasurf .
@maxreyes_ pictured here, ain't afraid to nail the shot! He spends his time hiking, swimming, and climbing buildings to capture insane perspectives of Los Angeles. He is committed to his passion and we admire that.

Super soft, mineral washed hoodies will be hitting stores soon. These pullovers are light-weight and feature a front/back graphic printed with ultra soft-to-the-touch waterbase ink. In other words, these puppies are so comfortable you'll have a hard time prying 'em back from your lady. #freedomartists #fall15
Logan Rauhut @loganrauhut is as talented behind the lens as he is in front of it. Either way, he loves spending time inside the tube. He snapped this photo and we really dig it.
