Le Diable Probablement.
Pipeline has a reputation for possessing some of the most dangerous waves in the world. It’s also home to the final event of the world surf tour, supported by Billabong. « Le diable probablement » is an attempt to capture the spirit of the event, with an analogy to that of a Roman gladiator, where you can feel the dangers of the Hawaiian wave, mixed with the public excitement in witnessing few men control the beast. French photographer & Desillusion Magazine editor in chief, Sebastien Zanella was present on December 14th, the biggest day of the event, when the ocean was toying with demons, blurring the lines between voyeur & spectator, standing, waiting for the worst…. and the best.
