Welcome to the September 2013 ZOOM Gallery, bringing you the best of what's happening right now in action sports images. Scroll through for insight from the photographers themselves on their top shots.
"One of the best things [about] this job is to just go out there with your friends and try to have a good time. Usually in smaller crews and in a more relaxed way, it somehow brings you a bit more to your roots, with more fun than pressure involved. Nevertheless, the hunger is always there, and the excitement to ride and do our best brings us sometimes to spots or situations where we need to fight for our reward." -- Carlos Blanchard
