Clark Little is pretty well known today as the foremost shore break art photographer (his art has been seen on "Good Morning America", and featured in a number of glossy magazines all over the world).

Even in the absence of killer monster waves, the shorebreak art can look slightly alien... Here is the little "Frosty" guy:
