AI, or artificial intelligence, has been a hot topic of conversation for a lot of people in contemporary society. These AI-powered services, which range from Chat GPT to Stable Diffusion, have been rapidly expanding over the web for one simple reason: they’re really convenient to use. Since AI has the capacity to quickly process a vast amount of knowledge, it can now fulfill the wish of having one’s every whim catered to with no effort on one’s part. Some people today are using AI to create art that exceeds even the wildest dreams of humans. The surfing community has lately seen a rise in this kind of visual expression.

A first glance fools the eye, but a deeper inspection reveals just how far we’ve gone in terms of imaging technology. The AI has also obeyed certain laws of composition in photography, making it as good a picture as any human could take. The way the black foreground blurs into the blue smooth waves on the horizon, is stunning. Red, heated lava, from which the surfer seems to be running away on the waves, fills the picture’s backdrop. Everything, even the surfer, has been rendered with impressive attention to detail.

SnapAir may not have included any context with the Facebook photo they published, but that doesn’t mean imaginations can’t go wild with interpretations. One of the picture’s most striking features is the way in which the lava and the ocean waves have blended. This is an improbable scene in real life, since surfing on lava would be very dangerous.
