Wave Of The Day

Wave of the day; Off The Wall – This morning

"Aqua Surge" - this morning at Off The Wall

It’s very, very quiet on the north shore this morning. It really is like the whole pro tour packed up and left overnight, along with the waves. Well there, were a few random waves about, but with a high tide running, they were pretty much right on the beach. This one I captured at Off […]


Today’s catch – of waves

I got the water housing wet this morning at Pupukea. I was really kind of syching just to get in the water somewhere because it was so sunny and clean with such a blue sky. My intention was to swim out to the back of Ehukai and shoot some images under water as the surfer […]


Wave of the day – Vals Reef

Deep inside at Vals Reef, Sunset beach.

Folks, they are currently so wave starved at the Oneill World Cup at Sunset Beach that they plan to run heats consecutively on 2 breaks at the same time, in order to run the remaining heats of the event in the expected 2 days of small swell, predicted for the remainder of the holding period. […]


Wave of the day – Aqua Twist

from Pupukea on the north shore of Oahu - Aqua Twist

Today’s Wave Of The Day comes to you from one of my favorite places to photograph waves. On certain days of the year, the water at Pupukea Sandbar takes on an amazing aquatic glow. I love to swim and photograph on those days. The colors and contrasts in the resulting images are always stunning. And […]


Wave of the day – Green Shimmer

Green Shimmer

I have thousands of wave images , but this is one of my more recent favorites. Photographed here on the north shore, I captured this gem soon after sunrise. As anyone who knows me will agree, I love to photograph the 1st and/or last hours of the day because this is where all the awesome […]


Wave of the day – Aqua Gold Curl

Aqua Gold Curl

Todays wave of the day was photographed very early morning, in fact, right on the moment that the sun appeared over the hill. There was just the right amount of water flowing back down from the beach to give this wave the extra bit of curviature that it needed to produce this moment for my […]


Lone wave at Ehukai for today’s sunset image.

Twilight Peak

Folks, we’ve had a bit of rain move in and although it stayed quite sunny on this part of the island for most of the day, It started to rain just before sunset, so I didn’t manage to get a shot today. Not to worry though, I only have a million other Hawaii’an sunsets already […]


Wave of the day – “liquid energy”

Print name - "Liquid energy"

Folks today’s wave of the day is a rare view of an ocean wave from both above the water line and below the waterline at the same time. I particularly love the bubbles floating to the surface. Gives it a nice art look. Enjoy!


Pipeline Lagoon pumping

South Swell at Pipeline beach

I was up early this morning to check out the new pulse of swell. There was hardly anyone anywhere. A few random tourists and the usual but where were all the surfers?… It didn’t really bother me though, I just slipped into Daveys Wavey Gravy mode and took pictures of the waves in the lagoon. […]


Dream session in Tasmania

southern comfort, somewhere in Tasmania

Folks, I posted an image on my Facebook page yesterday that frankly generated a little bit of excitement as well as a healthy dose of skepticism due to the fact that the waves looked so perfect and nobody was surfing in the picture. Here, I present you a picture from the following day and everybody […]


Tube Flare – latest print in the Davey collection

Print name - Tube Flare

Folks, entitled “Tube Flare”, this image is the latest addition to my 20 year collection of wave images, known as the OCEANS collection. Enjoy


pic of the day: Massive surf at Waimea Bay

Huge surf at Waimea Bay on december the 7th, 2009.

Another image randomly chosen from my surf archives, this is from December the 7th, last year. Waimeawas the biggest, I’ve seen people surf it. Soon after this image, the sun went down right as a new more solid push of the swell occurred, resulting in what was said to be a dozen or so rescues. […]


Wave of the day – “Aqua-blade”

Aquablade

Folks; todays picture of the day comes to you from the ever-amazing Pupukea sandbar, on the north shore. Every year usually around Feb-March, tons of sand gets pushed into the beach at Pupukea, between Pipeline and Rocky Point. During these months, the sand gets groomed into a long series of hollow sandy beach breaks. This […]


A view of a wave from behind and underwater

Beach Barrel

You ever wondered what a wave looks like as it depletes itself upon the beach ? Wonder no more. Here is a view of a wave, here on the north shore , but this image was actually taken underwater, behind the wave as it broke upon the beach. I’ve always photographed waves. The very first […]


Genuine real-Deal Waimea Close-Out

Waimea Close-Out December 8th 2009

This my friends is the dreaded close-out set wave at Waimea Bay. Surfers in the water, dread the very idea of one coming through while they are in the lineup. The spectators of course have a whole different outlook, being safely on land and for the most part, out of harms way. No matter where […]


Leopard Peak

OK folks, time for another random wave, this one coming at you from Gas Chambers, next to Rocky Point , on the north shore of Oahu . I titled this one: “Leopard Peak” because of the leopard skin like pattern in the wave’s foreground. And like most off season days here on the north shore, […]
