Lars Jacobsen

Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Waves & Woods Magazine
Lars is a freelance journalist and photographer from Hamburg, Germany. He grew up in his dad´s windsurf shop and got hooked on surfing at an early age by his older brother. Since then, all he's wanted is to travel for waves

Today, Jacobsen is still on a plane more often than in front of a desk. He's been lucky enough to combine his passion with his work. Thanks to his job as founder and editor-in-chief of Germany’s Waves & Woods magazine, you can meet him on one of his many off-the-beaten-path surf and outdoor trips, which have taken him from freezing Iceland to steaming India, and many places in between. He is also working as a freelance travel and sports photographer and editor. His photos and words have appeared in major publications around the globe.
