Coco Ho naked shoot photographer on women’s surfing in 2014: “Unfortunately, it has edged some girls out because they were deemed “unmarketable””

Bored talking about Coco Ho naked’s shoot for ESPN’s body issue? So are we! In fact we didn’t even bother to post Jamie Anderson’s shots for discussion as we’re so over it all. So sorry this really is our last post on the matter but the photographer behind the lens of the shoot Morgan Maassen has done a little interview with the Inertia (which you can read here).

Morgan Maassen is an awesome photographer (follow him on facebook here), who somehow manages to find a fresh angle on surf snapping, see for example this epic shot of Steph Gilmore:

“I am surfer, hear me ROAR!” Credit: Morgan Maassen

And it’s a cool interview, including heaps of insight about the shoot day which confirm our standard thoughts on the soundness of Coco Ho. Plus it’s sweet to know her boyfriend the snowboarder Mark McMorris was there to keep things mellow (read about them in our best power couples in action sports piece HERE!).

Buuuuuuuttt the interview does include one sentence that depressed the hell out of us.
