Meet Alana Spencer... the vision behind the lens of photography website and Instagram - @coconutcomradery.
An authentic Hawaiian soul with a genuine lust for travel of the tropical kind.
Alana is from a surfing family and is on a quest to present surfbound and swim images with integrity.
Through her photography, she naturally magnetises a global community of people who share the love for the ocean. Alana plays a proactive role in the underbelly of the surfing community without borders and for that we adore her -

Surf break of choice?
Summer is fast approaching and it'll soon be long evenings surfing and shooting until sundown at Chun's on the North Shore
Currently loving B&W film in my Leica Minizoom
I don't really have a mantra, but I have routine of breathing exercises before getting out of bed in the morning that I do while visualizing how I'll go about my task list for the day.
Best moment in your career/work so far?
Every time I get to shoot in the ocean with my water housing is a highlight for me.
The single best piece of advice you can give when traveling to Hawaii?
Rent a car and explore as much as you can, there's so much more than what's been Instgrammed.
