Check ME Out: March

(image 11 of 18)

My name is Sean Benik. I'm not surfing in these two photos, but I took them. The guy who's surfing in them is named Tomas Villegas and he's from La Serena, Chile and doesn't speak english. I moved here a little over a month ago and live with Tomas, who is sixteen years old and I am too. I've been locking in some hours behind the camera - both video and still - to capture this up-and-comer from a country that doesn't have too much publicity. I think he rips, which is why I've been taking photos of him - and i also have a video coming soon. My page on the transworld sight is under the name "recessiveproductions," I have a few videos on there,
