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 […]


Epic Sunset Beach a few days ago

Classic Sunset - Feb 26th 2010

I was surprised to stumble upon pretty good quality surf at Sunset a few days ago. It’s taken me till now to get a clip together. Enjoy! Aloha Sean Epic Sunset Beach


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 […]


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 […]


YLS mag features Davey Photography

I’ve been working behind the scenes for a while now with Adam over at yourlocalsurf.com He’s been putting out his own on- line surf mag for about a year now and I’ve helped him with the last couple of issues. This issue features some of my sequence photography of Teahupoo in Tahiti, right on the […]


And now for something, just a little different

As many of you already know, I’ve always been pretty obsessed with photographing waves, right from the very first image, I ever photographed. The amazing thing about waves is their forever changing form. Some amazing moments can be photographed that for the most part are lost to regular vision. It’s particularly these kind of images […]

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….


Jamie Obrien bag’s his first BIG Pipe Barrel of the 09-10 season

He caught this ridiculous barrel just half an hour into his surf.


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 […]

Derek Ho, still a Pipe Master after all these years

Anyone who’s watched the north shore over the past 15 or 20 years will tell you thruthfuly, who the best guys are out at Pipe. One guy that will be on everyone’s list is Derek Ho. He always finds the cleanest most beautiful Pipeline barrels and rides them with absolute ease, grace and supreme balance. […]


Wipeout of a lifetime

We had our first real day of solid swell for the season, 2 days ago. It was easily the best opening day for Pipeline that I’ve seen. relentless swell through out the night moved a great deal of the sand before daylight, although there was still some pretty heavy backwash and wobble happening out in […]


Perfect conditions here on the north shore

We are even expecting a big swell in another day or two.


That’s Gold!
