NIKON's Australian Surf Photo of the Year finalists, a great excuse for a little bit of high stepping wave porn.
Provided without context these are 20 of the best images as shortlisted for the award, all shot over the previous 12 months by Australia's finest. You'll recognise a lot of the locations: Pedra Blanca (pictured, vid here
), a good few from The Right, Shipsten Bluff, Cloudbreak and a certain shiny age-defying bonce.
