Jose Dopico or 'Dopi' as he is known around his hometown near Galica, Spain is a self-taught waterman and photographer making some incredible images. He started like a lot of us did shooting in the water with a disposable camera capturing beautiful moments with the ocean and his friends riding waves. He then graduated to his first digital camera but didn't have the cash to throw at a water housing. He made one himself out of pvc piping and with this new found digital power starting shooting thousands of images a day until he realised he was going to have to be more selective about his captures.

These days Jose has honed his skill and sits and wait for the moments he knows will work as images. As you can see he has the water, land and action aspect of surf photographer down and he is making some of the best images we have seen coming out of the area.

Follow him on Instagram and go along for the ride.
