Off The Israeli Coast

The Mediterranean kicks up some swell and brings overhead surf to Israel

Amit Schestowitz and Jacob Madar are two photographers from Israel, and each documented the strong swell that graced the coast during this Israel winter (which doesn’t last very long). Usually dependent on shifting windswells and stormy surf, the growing packs of Israeli surfers jumped on some clean, pumping surf near Atlit, Qrayot, and Haifa city on the northern coasts of the country. They were some of the biggest waves they’d ever seen at home.
