The Flynnstone Flip finally captured

I first photographed Flynn Novak doing his signature maneuver The Flynnstone Flip way back in 2004 and despite him not quite riding out of the flip, Tracks magazine was stoked to run it as a double page spread. I finally broke that curse a couple of days ago and captured a full flip and he […]

It’s well out of season, but the north pumps anyway.

We’ve had a very unseasonal series of swell pulses here on the north shore over the past couple of weeks. This past week alone saw waves in the 2-5 foot range almost all week long although there has been a lot of backwash to contend with, due to the build up of sand on the […]

One in a million moment

It was October the 13th in 2004 and I had just rocked up to the beach to see if I could get some decent surf shots against the setting sun at at Rocky point. There I was on the beach looking at this full on solar eclipse and then I noticed Flynn Novak out there […]

Helicopter produces amazing aerial panavista’s

Flynn Novak tubed at Pipeline.

As a professional photographer, I have a lot of tools at my fingertips. Some cameras, a bunch of high quality lens, some specialized water proof camera box’s to protect my gear when I’m swimming with it and a whole bunch more other gear, but one item clearly stands out. I don’t get to use it […]

Flynn rips the bags out of Rockies while wearing a Davey Tee :)

I gave Flynn Novak a couple of The Davey Visions Tees from Welshy over in England. Flynn went straight out to Rocky Point and ripped the place apart with an inspired display of high tech surfing. If my T-shirts really could make people surf like this, I’d sell a million of ’em Here’s a handful […]

First swell of the season lights up the north shore

Sean Moody carvin' it

Folks, it’s been a long wait between swells up here on the north shore, but finally, one arrived today. Conditions were largely overcast and howling winds in between rain squalls, so it wasn’t that great, but at least the sun stayed out most of this afternoon. Here’s a some images of Flynn Novak, Sean Moody […]

Flynn Novak Bro’file

Flynn Novak bro'file

Folks, I’ve known Flynn for pretty much the whole 15 years that I’ve lived on the north shore and he seriously is the most talented surfer with the least sponsors, I’ve ever seen. The poor guy has had n extraordinarily bad run with less than quality sponsors and he’s really looking for a company home […]

A look behind the Pipemasters of 2009

Just thought I’d take a look back over the week that was chaos, ridiculous traffic, countless barrels, a world championship, a couple of total Pipe legends, another back on the rise. Life on the north shore mid December. Doesn’t get much better. Here’s a glimpse into not necessarily the Pipe masters. The focus is more […]

Taj Burrow takes the 2009 Pipe Masters mantel

They ran the finals of the Pipe Masters yesterday and although it wasn’t exactly real Pipeline, it was a lot better than some previous finals days. At least we had tubes offer. There was only one Hawaiian surfer left in the mix, my good friend Flynn Novak who was up against Kelly Slate. Flynn’s the […]

Good times on the north shore

Wow, it’s been so spectacularly beautiful here on the north shore. Such beautiful glassy conditions with pretty consistent 3-5 foot waves. The amazing thing this year is the complete absence so far of traveling surfers. Just a handful of local surfers at any given spot. This must be about as close to the old days […]

Super sessions at Rockies

Hi everyone, wow! it’s been so beautiful here this week. It’s been really blue and sunny with super gentle variable winds, which basically equates to super glassy conditions here with 3-4 foot swell every day this week. You’ve gotta love that for the month of May. Rocky Point was a bit of a magnet too […]

Marrawah rocks!

Hi everyone. it’s been almost a week since I’ve had access to the internet and a lot has happened during this time. There’s been awesome surf at a few different locations up here in Marrawah. I photographed Ezra, Flynn and Mason (Ho) for a few days, then the Oneill Cold water Classic kicked into gear […]

Flynn and Ezra’s excellent adventure

I’ve been free-ranging round the South east of Tasmania with Flynn Novak and Ezra Sitt from Hawaii, these past couple of days. We drove a long way yesterday and they got some pretty cool waves actually. I didn’t get time though to do a proper edit, so here’s a few images from the day. I’ll […]

A random surf session on South Arm

My Hawaiian buddies Flynn Novak and Ezra Sitt arrived here in Hobart last night, on their way to the Oneill cold water classic surf event, scheduled for the 23rd to the 29th of March, right here in Tasmania. I took ’em for a surf today down at the local Hobart beachies, at South Arm Peninsular. […]

Good surf on the north shore

This morning at Pipe was pretty busy due to a large number of crew, out to get their fair share of the spoils on offer. Pipe was kinda doing it’s thing in that, every so many waves, there’d be a pretty decent one come through. There was a large film crew down there filming quite […]

Yesterday at The Pipe Trials

Finally after a month and half, Pipeline has awoken and just in time for the HIC Pipeline Trials. A one day event in which local surfers compete for 1 of 8 spots in the Pipeline masters later in the year. So unlike most events, there was be no need for Semi finals. They simply wrapped […]
