Meet 17-year-old surf photographer Leroy Bellet, from South Coast, New South Wales, Australia. Already, Leroy has become famous in the surfing world for his POV images from within the barrel of some of Australia’s fiercest waves. But he wants to go bigger. Three years in the making, this Chasing The Shot feature follows Leroy in increasingly dangerous waves, “double-towing” with some of the world’s best surfers inside the barrel with a Nikon, GoPro, and — most spectacularly — a Phantom. Nowhere is the challenge greater than at Teahupo’o, Tahiti . . . but that’s where Leroy will go to capture the ultimate POV barrel shot.
