I know boats!

I was doing an image search day or two ago and dug up this classic from the tropical paradise of Tahiti , several years ago. It was one of those beautiful sunny afternoons with just about no wind, so the water was really glassy with loads of perfect waves and they had grown in size […]


Classic big wave moment: Randy lane at Outside Avalanche

This was back in 1999 and I was up in a helicopter, randomly photographing tow surfing. Nothing organised as such. I was checking out these guys at Outside Avalanche when this one guy on an old school stand-up jetski caught a Huge wave and just got real close to the


Club Of The Waves focus’s on Sean Davey photography

I’m way more of an artist that a documenter.


Heavy Water moment at The Bay

Huge wave cleans up the pack at big Waimea, Jan 11th 2010

Folks, I shot this image from up on the hill at Pupukea, back on Jan’ 11th, this year. I could scarcely believe my eyes when this went down. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the entire pack get cleaned up at The Bay before. There was one particular individual who caught my attention as this […]


Charlie Carroll – pedal to the metal

Surf shot of the day- Charlie Carroll at Backdoor

Folks, I’ve chosen this killer image of Hawaiian surfer ; Charlie Carroll going very fast at Backdoor Pipe. If you’re wondering, no it’s not like this at the moment. I just wanted to share a cool surf image. enjoy!


Davey’s Wavey Gravy. Get your’s today

Sean Davey's Wavey Gravy.

Waves have always been a major target in my viewfinder. My very first photo was of a Wave, way back in 1977. I’ve been building my collection of wave images for somewhere like 25 years now. These images here represent just a handful of the entire collection, but they are some of my favorite wave […]


Let’s help out Kehau Sullivan

As many of you know, I’ve been lucky enough to live here on the north shore for the past 12 or so years and during all this time, I’ve been really good mates with Pancho Sullivan and now his wife Hanauni and young family. Pancho and I have been on all kinds of trips to […]


Mick Fanning wins the world surfing championship at the Pipe masters

It was an amazing day of surfing at the Pipe Masters. Mick Fanning won his round three heat against young Hawaiian; Torrey Meister, keeping the dream alive, then the ball fell into Joel Parkinson‘s court for his matchup against Hawaiian surfer Gavin Gillette. Joel pretty much had the heat till a couple of minutes to […]


Pipe Masters runs another half day before holding off for the big stuff

It’s been a couple of days of the Pipe Masters already, but everyone’s is in such a daze after the recent Giant swell episode that the appeal of the Pipe Masters is not as it usually would be. Given that it’s only 3-5 foot on average, doesn’t help with one’s enthusiasm that much. We are […]


Awesome day at the Eddie Aikau big wave surfing invitational

Hi all, wow, what a few days, it has been. I slept over at the Rip Curl Off The Wall house the night before the contest because they said the roads would be closed down and I wanted to be right there, where it was all going down. The rumble of the ocean was just […]


Eddie went at Waimea Bay

Hi all, I’m super slammed here with a backlog of photo “processing” to do from the past few epic days at Waimea Bay, so I won’t dwell here long, but to say that it’s been an amazing couple of days here. I shot crazy huge Waimea yesterday morning for a few hours. It was massive […]


The Bay went HUGE today, but the Eddie waits another day

We have a massive, massive swell filling in round the north shore right now. I have to get right back up there before they shut it all down, so you won’t be hearing from me again till tomorrow night. Till then, check this beast from Waimea Bay, this morning….


Update on the current big swell event in the Hawaii’an islands

Yesterday’s big wave episode really didn’t pan out to be that great. The swell was coming up all day long but the weather conditions deteriated to about as dark as you can get with regular rain showers and stuff. I started out by checking out Sunset. There were a couple of guys trying to get […]


Jamie Obrien’s Season Opener at Pipe

Sep 25th was quite the opening day at the Pipe. The swell had come in mighty strong the night before and ploughed out a decent amount of the sand which so often ruins the early season at Pipe. By daybreak, there were bombs to be had, all be it with weird lumps and double ups […]


Deep Impact in the pacific

It’s amazing what you can do with the modern day photoshop tools. I learnt the old fashioned way myself, in the dark room, “dodging” and “burning”, wasting sheet after sheet of photographic paper. These days though, it’s a trip what you can do. Imagine it and then go do it. That simple, really. Take this […]


Man V’s Nature, at it’s purest, with Damian Wills

As some of my readers will know, I spent quite a considerable amount of time in Tasmania recently and while I was there, I was lucky enough to take in a big wave session at Shipstern Bluff. They are a tight knit crew, the Tassie boys. The whole boat erupts in hoots and laughter, every […]


Shipsterns shines again

It’s now the 17th and I’ve already moved on to the final stage of my trip, up here on King Island. But before I left, I managed to squeeze in a couple of shoots at the always amazing Shipstern Bluff. There were a few name surfers from out of town like Jamie Obrien, Ryan Hipwood […]


Classic surf moment

“Kieren Perrow has just taken off on a monster, only to have the lip curl in after him and hunt him down, like it was alive.”


Classic surf moment; Todos 98

A moment from the Reef contest at Todos Santos Island (Mexico) in Feb 1998. This is the same contest that Taylor Knox earned $50K for his paddle in wave. I’ll bring you up to speed on this moment here; They had already run one day of competition so far without the Aussie and Hawaiian teams […]
