Presented By Our Friends Of The Porpoise at WRV, check ’em out here at

For any magazine or website that deals with surfing, the contributing photographers are the life-blood of getting content to publish.  Like so many other media sources, ESM has always depended on so many talented  people to help bring  the story of what the East Coast is all about.  At one time we had 91 contributing photographers, 58 senior photographers, and 4 chief photographers. Thru the lenses of over 150 photographers, ESM had lots of help stoking our print readers and now web browsers for just over 27 years.  We still have key main photogs sending shots with every swell, and what the following photos represent are just a few we are getting and just haven’t been able to publish them until now. Enjoy the photo mix and if you have any photos you would like to share Email or them to : DUGAN@EASTERNSURF.COM. And Thank you to everyone who contributes to our digital platforms keeping the ESM dream alive and thriving in cyberspace ! – Tom Dugan @tomduganphotos –
