Yeah, we know, you wanna go to the beach. It’s not gonna happen. Get over it! Instead, here’s something to feast your eyes on: the winners of the 8th annual Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Awards! The Nikon Surf Photo of the Year went to Ren McGann’s image “The Right,” while Andrew Kaineder was awarded Nikon Surf Video of the Year for his film “Flow State.”

Created by the imaging giant and Surfing Australia, the contest invites photographers and videographers to submit their best images of surfers in action, crashing swells, and the surf lifestyle. Twenty finalist images and three videos were selected by a panel of judges from the surfing industry, notably seven-time World Surfing Champion Stephanie Gilmore—who’s also a Nikon Brand Ambassador, by the way.

Here are some more of the finalists’ images:
