I was fortunate to be assigned to shoot the cover Feb/Mar 2013 issue of the Atlantic Current Magazine, which will be my third cover in a row with them.
Below are a handful of other images and assignments that were ran in the latest issue including FAU baseball, paddleboarding and an article on local surfer Codi Monroy!
Hurricane Sandy literally created a huge stir in many ways around the Atlantic. Here are some images that were shot, ran, involved in, published, etc….

I was asked to cover 8 guys on a surfing trip of their lives aboard the Indies Trader 3 throughout the Mentawai Islands over the course of 12 days. Adventure is not even the word. Chasing waves with the best boats and technology available….. in the best place in the world is an experience I wanted to share. So I did, everyday on my blog partnership with www.Slavetothewave.com! I had a series of blogs where I wrote and posted photos of everyday and the people, waves and experiences we encountered. You can see them all here www.slavetothewave.com/ben-hicks/
Here are some of my favorite images from the trip.
Check out this months Issue of Eastern Surf Magazine as Matt Oberman and I finally get a shot printed with his name completely spelled out correctly. Its small in the Blahs sections but its been a long time coming to get something printed for him. Riding Ocatane boards locally shaped out of Pompano Beach, FL. Thanks Matt!
Super stoked to find out I got a full page in this months issue #44 of Singletrack Magazine out of the UK. It was a shot of Scott Rempe on a recent trip to Southern California in early summer. Go check it out!
