Gorgeous Nude Surfing Photo for ESPN’s Body Issue

For ESPN Magazine’s new
Body Issue, Brazilian professional big wave surfer Maya Gabeira was the focus of one of the most beautiful underwater shots I’ve ever seen. Completely naked, she went duck diving as photographer Francsco Carrozini captured this stunning shot.

“I’ve been getting some good feedback. My family liked it — my Dad, that was a big relief,” Gabeira told Jon Coen of ESPN, “I liked it myself. I felt more artistic than exposed. But the picture came out alright.”
