If you’ve never seen Callie Bowdish’s web site, you’ve been missing out on a lot of quality
photography. She takes photos of lots of things, but of course, we enjoy her surf
photography the most. Here’s a random sampling.

What we didn’t know about Callie, was that she’s one heck of a surfer as well. She started
surfing in the early 70’s and has surfed in contests from Malibu to Hawaii to Santa Cruz.
Here she is on a incredible Rincon beast.

Callie still likes to surf when there’s a good swell running, but she’s not a fan of crowds.
We hear you on that one Callie. Here she’s surfing Jalama.

A big part of the fun of surfing for Callie is being with her friends.
Here she is with some of her buds in December 2004.
