Tubes: The Possibility to Meet the Unknown by Wilson Aguiar

Wil Aguiar is a surfer and professional surf photographer who now makes his home on the Sunshine Coast. His passion for surf began after a successful career as a skateboarder in a country where many of the world’s top skateboarders live and that culminated with him winning the 1992 Brazilian Union of Skateboard Junior Championship.

During the past 21 years as a surfer, Wil has travelled to México (Puerto Escondido), Indonesia (G - Land, Bali, Sumbawa, Lombok, Nusa Lembongam), Australia (all areas between Bells Beach, Sydney, and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts), and of course, in Brazil (Southeast, South, Northeast and Fernando de Noronha).

Since 2011 he has worked as a professional photographer and published in both print and web magazines.

Wil's photography reveals the unseen; the untouched; the smell of the transparent water. The captured images are velvet to the skin and a refuge to the mind.
