Todd Glaser's photography has won awards, accolades, and applause in every shape and form. His images of surf action and lifestyle seem to capture the spirit and soul of the waves and surfers that appear in them. He's shot numerous covers and features for Surfer magazine as well as The Surfers Journal, Surfing World Australia, Waves Magazine, Australia Surfing World, Outside magazine, the New York Times, and more.

Glaser grew his sea legs at a young age, getting his start as a competitive bodyboarder, eventually turning pro, then traveling the world charging slabs while filming for videos, and eventually picking up the camera to take “turns shooting photos with friends."

Todd Stopped by Cote's Cube on a bit of a break between a photographic journey to Europe with Kelly Slater and his yearly trip to the North Shore of Oahu. Hopefully, this interview will give you some insight as to why "everybody loves Todd." He is humble, polite, intelligent, and a total class act.

Todd is awesome, and it was a pleasure having him on Cote's Cube … enjoy.
