Frank Quirarte, was born and raised in the Northern California coastal town of Pacifica. Frank started surfing and diving in the early seventies and developed a deep love for the ocean. After high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force and started what would be a six-and-a-half year commitment which included tours of Desert Storm and Operation Just Cause over Granada.
As a reservist, he fought the fires in San Francisco's Marina District during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake which devastated the San Francisco Bay Area. Frank then utilized his Air Force training during a nine-year stint with Delta Airlines as a mechanic.
Somewhere around 1996, Frank and his cousin, co-founder Jeff Nagy, were introduced to an Apple II computer by Jeff's dad.
Around that same time, Frank resigned from the airlines to help Jeff Clark put together a Personal Watercraft rescue team at Maverick's and pursue a life in the surf industry.
Frank spent the summer of 1997 honing his PWC rescue techniques as Alladio's top course marshal in the dangerous, high-paced world of Jet Ski racing. Shawn then trained Frank as one of her top rescue boat instructors.
Soon thereafter, Quiksilver hired Quirarte to run the water-safety team for what was dubbed the Maverick's Men Who Ride Mountains contest. With his experience as a lifeguard and many hours on a Jet Ski, it made perfect sense. The first contest was held in 1999 and was a great success. Frank went on to help with the following Quiksilver event.
But what about photography? In order for users to return back to, they needed photos and video clips. Obtaining shots from the few photographers out at Mavs seemed next to impossible. So Frank borrowed Clark's camera and started shooting his own photos.
Frank then hopped aboard Clark's Zodiac, a primitive craft by modern standards. After a season or two of close calls and harrowing conditions on the ailing Zodiac, he began depending on the more reliable PWC.
Quirarte started working with Grant Washburn and Lili Schad on the their surf documentary, "Maverick's," providing water and graphic design support.
After a few hundred bad rolls of film and some invaluable tutelage from world-class surfing photographers Vern Fisher, Don Montgomery and Doug Acton - along with noted magazine photo editor's Larry (Flame) Moore and Rob Gilley - Quirarte started taking some amazing shots of his own.
In the summer of 2005, representing the Mavericks Rescue Team along with Bill Sharp and Matt George of Surf Zone Relief and Shawn Alladio of K38, Frank volunteered to utilize his rescue-boat skills in the hardest-hit parts of New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
Showing no signs of slowing down, Frank will continue to provide us with some of the most amazing stories and images to come out of the world's most dangerous wave. Now viewing: >About Frank Quirarte photography>
