“Lucky, we live Hawaii”

As I’ve been transitioning away from the surf industry over the past couple of years, I’ve been wandering further afield from the north shore all the time, in my quest for new and different imagery. There’s been way less emphasis on surf and a lot more importance on photographing the beautiful nature of this place. […]


Did you know?

The new easy way to search for images, right here.

One of my pictures of Keoni in the tube.

I’m always looking to get the very best quality out of any given shooting situation.

Davey photos at Frothers.com.au

Folks, we’ve had a variety of surf conditions here on the north shore over the past week. My friends over at frothers.com.au just posted a bunch of my images from this past week. Check it out here …


New UNDER WATER pictorial of the NORTH SHORE

"Through the looking glass" with Sean Davey

The surf forecasting website; Surfline, just featured another new pictorial of my images as part of their ongoing “6 weeks on the north shore” features. In this pictorial, I’ve focused entirely on what’s going on under water around the north shore. Here, you’ll find out what Pipeline’s reef looks like from up close and personal, […]


A look underneath the surface

Today folks, I thought I’d share with you some images from under water. It’s certainly one of my most favourite places to take photographs. There is a wide range of imagery in this lot including surfers, photographed from behind the wave, there’s Hawaiian spinner dolphins and friendly Hawaiian sea turtles, the most amazing under water […]


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 – “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!


Nice conditions continue on the north shore, despite the lack of surf

Under water view of a Hawaiian sea turtle this morning.

I went for a bit of a swim at Waimea this morning, to scope it out. Usually round this time of year, the place is teeming with massive shoals of bait-fish, numbering in their tens of thousands if not more. Today however, it was pretty clear that this won’t happen for probably another month or […]


Ariel view of OFF THE WALL, on the north shore

Off The Wall, ariel view, north shore

Aloha from the north shore of Oahu, where the conditions are pretty much like this picture, right here. It’s warm and sunny and not so many people around right now. For anyone vacationing here right now, it would be heaven-sent. The surf season here on the north shore doesn’t really properly get underway again for […]


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 […]


Gliding underwater with turtles

Hawaiian sea turtles on the north shore, Oahu, Hawaii.

A lot of folks visit the islands to see the huge surf during our winter months, but just as many people visit the north shore to see what else is out here, during the summer months in particular. Just about anywhere along the north shore, you can throw on a snorkel and mask and be […]


Beautiful conditions finally return to the north shore

Pancho Sullivan flaring at Pupukea Sandbar, this morning.

It’s been like 2 weeks of bad weather here on the north shore, so it was soooooo good to see the sunny conditions return to the north shore and with no winds. I went for a bit of a swim at Pupukea sandbar this morning with Pancho Sullivan, Carissa Moore and Myles Padaca. I guess, […]


Indonesian dreamscape – “Aqua Peel”

"Aqua Peel" - Indonesia

This from a trip, a couple of years ago in the Mentawai Islands, off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. We were cruising along and spotted this totally random little island, so we dropped anchor off it and I dived over the side of the boat with my water camera. It was a tiny little […]


Bodysurfing with Keith Malloy.

Perfect dreamy conditions at Pupukea

As many of you know, I’ve been spending a fair bit of time, swimming on the Pupukea sandbars lately and photographing the amazing conditions. I was out there yesterday and met up my old buddy Keith Malloy, who was out enjoying the perfect bodysurfing conditions. Keith of course is a great surfer who not long […]


North shore sand bars light up again for 2 day marathon

dreamy clean and uncrowded this morning.

It seems that the picture which I posted yesterday morning, entitled; AquaBlade was a bit of a omen, but in a good sense. That is exactly how the sandbars at Pupukea have been looking for the past 2 days, here on the north shore. The water has been absolutely crystal clear translucence, dreamy blues and […]


PIcture of the day: AquaBlade

Aquablade

Today, I’m featuring one of my current top selling images. This particular image has yielded 2 recent print orders as well as a print sale through my agent WaveRiders gallery gallery recently. Around this time of the year, when the swells get a little smaller and more organised, the sand bars between pipeline and Rocky […]


Giants fail to deter surfers in quest for perfection

Flynn Novak surfing in the land of the giants.

Uh Oh! I’m starting to have flashbacks to that old TV show “Land of the Giants”, but man, the waves are soooooo good, that no one even cared aout the giant dudes.


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 […]


Incredible water moment

This is an interesting moment from last week’s dream sand bar days. There was this one surfer duck-divingthrough this wave. I don’t know what happened to them, but this is a pretty cool Hawaiian surf moment…. Sean


Torquoise water fun with the Go pro HD

Amazingly both of my pro cameras are on the blink and hence, are on their way to the Canon repair shop at the mo’, so I’ve been enjoying, filming the sandbars with the new Go Pro HD cam. I shot some hand held footage of random surfers and waves, but then, I was able to […]


Amazing crystal clear conditions on the north shore

Absolutely beautiful conditions here on the north shore yesterday and I guess we could be expecting more today. I just love it here when it settles down and produces days like this.


Under water, friendly face of the day

I love getting into the water here in Hawaii. It’s just about always really clear under there and usually some cool stuff going on with fish, turtles or just waves. It’s absolutely therapy for me, especially when I start my day off with it. This particular image, I shot over at Laniekea, these days known […]


Amazing Visual of the day

Have you ever wondered when you look and see all those surfers sitting there on the surface of the water; “what’s it look like under the water?” Well, this is a view of the reef at Pipeline with the surfers all sitting just feet above the reef. Based on it’s history, this is the most […]
