Libres en el Mar


The people who live near the sea usually say that we can not do it far from them. The coast has always had a special attraction for us.

The sea, the air and the sun stir our senses and accentuate the feeling of well-being. Far away from noise and worries, the mind can float free while listening to the sound of the wind and the waves. Some will consider it a waste of time, but there are few pleasures that exceed walking on a beach, diving and surfing its waves, or floating on its waters.

In “Libres en el mar”, the author shares many of the thoughts and sensations that explain his relationship with the sea. And he does it through a series of photographs taken on the beaches of Doniños, Santa Comba, San Xurxo, Esmelle, Villarrube, O Pedrido, Salinas, Fuerteventura and Biarritz, accompanied by notes taken from people like Drew Kampion, Frank Lanting, Phillip Plisson, Christian Buchet, Pierre Borham, Albert Falzon, Javier Aramburu, Willy Uribe or JF Kennedy, who has been mixing and modifying as if they were samplers for a song, and with whom he feels totally identified.

Jesús Busto affirms that he has always enjoyed writing. Then he came to photography, as a way to put images to those words. And finally surfing, which has allowed him to unite the above history, oceanography, science … All this from the northwest of the peninsula, a place where there are many things to tell. President of the Ocean Surf Club since 2006, representative of the local antenna of the Surfrider Foundation in Galicia between 2000 and 2010, editor of the blog desdelacroa since 2009, “Libres en el mar” is his first publication in Libros del Océano .
