38th Parallel Surfing by Shannon Aston for Stocksy United

38th Parallel Surfing

My latest project is a photo-essay on surfing culture on the 38th Parallel, (the demarcation line of latitude drawn up after the Korean war between North and South Korea's). Focusing mainly on the aptly named 38th Parallel Beach and surrounds, I have photographed Korean and foreign surfers who have established this area as a legitimate surfing community which exists comfortably with the local fishing community and the ever-present ROK defense force. Waves, military forces and fishing can all be seen on any day, during any of Korea's distinct seasons.
