(Carlsbad, CA) – October 4th, 2011– From tropical beaches to enchanting caves and waterfalls, Puerto Rico was chosen to host this year’s calendar for its wild beauty and rich diversity of landscape. The coffee table-style book contains iconic Miss Reef imagery captured by fashion photographer Nicholas Routzen as well as Puerto Rican resident Emiliano Gatica.
The 2012 Miss Reef Calendar is available now at Reef.com/missreef and at local surf shops around the world. Stay tuned for a series of 12 mini-video teaser clips set to release in the coming months.
The Miss Reef Calendar is an annual tradition that sets out to capture the essence of the Reef Brand; exotic beach locations, mesmerizing women and truly iconic Reef imagery that has been treasured by the surfing community for the past 25 years.
The 2010 Miss Reef calendar, the first of this limited edition series, was photographed entirely in Northern Brazil. The second installment took us to a remote archipelago of islands strung out along the Caribbean coast of Panama for the 2011 version. The third and latest installment showcases the Miss Reef Girls mingling with exotic locations in Puerto Rico, like Isabela, Aguadilla, Rincon, the waterfalls at San Sebastian, and Viejo San Juan.
Reef will visit a new secret location for the next two years to complete the series of five calendars all shot in Latin America.
