New addition to the gallery – Sand grinder

I just added this image to the collection. Entitled as “Sand Grinder”, I photographed this image after several weeks of very little swell. Anyone who knows the north shore can attest to how quickly the sand builds up on all the beaches. Shooting at Pipeline on this morning, I was astounded at how much empty […]

Perfect surf line-ups everywhere

Folks, there is a whole world of perfect surfing waves out there. I’ve touched on quite a few of them over the years during my travels and certainly there are many that I still haven’t gone anywhere near, but what is amazing, is how many perfect waves still exist out there, so many still unridden. […]


Some pictures from this morning, on the north shore

Folks, it’s been very, very quiet for surfing the north shore lately. Really quiet, not to mention that the past couple of weeks have produced some rainy and windy weather as well. So when I woke this morning and could see that everything was settled down, with hardly any wind about, that was enough to […]


Pipeline sunrise – this morning

Deep inside the take off zone at Pipe.

Folks, most mornings, all year round, my wife Lane gets up really, really early. She’s surf obsessed. She has to get amongst the waves and get her share before the all the other surfers descend upon it. During the Hawaiian summer, this means she’s getting up like 4.30 – 500 am to make it into […]


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 […]


A few options amongst the big waves on the north shore

Donnie Darnell was getting barreled every wave at Sunset yesterday

Still plenty of swell around folks. They were saying that it would be a lot bigger yesterday and it definitely did pick up a couple of notches, however the brunt of the swell occurred overnight and so it was on the way down. It turned out to be a matter of finding a spot that […]


More Tasmanian point-break goodness

Sterls, pausing to take in the beauty of a classic Tassy point break.

Been a lot of banter going back and forth these past few days about our beloved Tasmanian point breaks. We actually have quite a few of ’em around the place, up and down the coasts and particularly on bigger swells, a lot of ’em just kind of pop up, waiting for someone to come along […]


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. […]


Rolling Thunder – panoramic print.

Rolling Thunder in the South Pacific

Todays image comes to you from an island, deep in the south Pacific ocean. I’ll refrain from saying exactly where, but it certainly isn’t over-run with surfers in this island. In fact, you’ll have a hard time finding someone to surf with most of the time. The waves though are very good, as this image […]


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 […]


Clean and green on King Island.

clean and green tubing magnet

A simple wave of the day, here from King Island in Australia. This particular beach is as close to surf heaven that I have seen.


What’s doing, up north?

lined up emerald magnets

The south swell pushed up a bit yesterday, so Wire and I lobbed into the falcon, (what we like to call “The Mobile Couch”) and headed up north, to take a look for ourselves…


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, […]


On my mind

Surf Heaven

Well folks, usually I’m on my way to Australia right about this time of the year and usually, I end up at this very special little island in Bass Strait. I’ve been going there for many years, Seems that if I make it there this year, it’ll be a little later than usual, due to […]


“Waimea Power” nets another double

Gig poster for Kehau Sullivan's Aloha Jam on the 5th of March.

As many of you know, it’s been an amazing season here for really big surf. One of my favourite images from the recent big swell episodes was one such image that I captured late in the day before the Eddie ran. This picture of several surfers just scraping over a huge set wave at


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 […]


Art showing at the prestigious Annenberg Space for Photography

Waimea Power

I was recently approached by a representative of the prestigious Annenberg Space for Photography, requesting my participation in an upcoming international show dedicated to sports photography. I submitted 30 images for consideration and promptly received a very hearty welcome to the exhibition. Unfortunately, I can’t make the show itself, but I will have 30 images […]


Pipe shines with an all star crew

Japanese Pipe legend; Takayuki Wakita charging deep at Pipe.

As many Pipe specialists will tell you; It’s been a great season unless riding the Pipe is your gig. If that’s the case, this has been probably the most frustrating of seasons for the Pipe surfer. We’ve had pumping swellpretty much since late August and the only real


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.
