Todays Hawaiian sunset at Turtle Bay 10 10 10

Rockpile Beach on Oct 7th 2010

This is the 4th day in a row that I’ve been photographing Hawaiian sunsets and I expect to keep doing this each day for the forseeable future. Todays Hawaiian sunset comes from Turtle Bay, on the north shore of Oahu. I didn’t post the last 3 sunsets here on my site, so I’m presenting them […]


north shore, readying for the influx

Luke Stedman weaving amongst the photog's at Kodak Reef

Folks, I was asked by an over seas magazine editor just yesterday for an image of many photographers, jostling for the same image and boy, did I have one. I zeroed straight in on an absolute gem of TJ Barron about to get barreled at Kodak Reef. This picture is actually Luke Stedman from the […]


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!


Jon Florence carving up the Sunset Bowl

Jon Florence carving it up at Sunset Bowl, this week.

Folks, this is Jon Florence , formerly known as Jon Jon Florence. I captured him a few days back, laying down this huge powerful carve at Sunset beach. It’s pretty obvious that he’s picked up some carveing skills from working with Pancho and Myles over at Progressive Surfing There’s been a fairly decent run of […]


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 […]


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 […]


New Triptych canvas’s now available

Folks, I’ve had a lot of people asking me about Triptych prints recently. For those of you who have never heard of these, a triptych is one image printed onto 3 canvas panels. Those panels are then displayed together to show the whole picture. They are a little different to the usual way of showing […]


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 […]


Haleiwa Beach Park, this morning

My fellow Tasmanian friend Joni Lee James is currently visiting the north shore, here in Hawaii and tagged along on one of my early morning photo shoots, this morning. We started by checking Sunset beach, then on to Rocky Point, but no inspiration awaited here either, on to Log Cabin, nup!… Then Waimea had a […]


Hawaii’an Spinner Dolphins

A pair of Hawaiian spinner dolphins on the island of Oahu, Hawai

folks, I love these little guys. I’ve only had occasion to run into them just a few times over the years. You don’t see them too often here on the north shore, but at certain times of the year they can return sometimes on a daily basis. This particular day, there were dozens and dozens […]


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. […]


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 […]


Surfing towards the light

Sunrise surfing at Rocky Point.

It’s round this time of the year ( August ) that the seasons start to change and we see hints of the coming north shore swell season. This image which I entitled Towards the light was taken during a small mid year bump of swell at Rocky lefts. As you can see the sun is […]


Kahana Sunrise

Sunrise over Kahana Bay, on Oahu, Hawaii.

This is another of my images from yesterday morning’s glorious sunrise here in Hawaii. I was actually headed at the time for Lanikai, further to the south but as I rounded Kahana Bay, I could see that the sun was almost rising already, so I scouted out a spot and waited for the first rays […]


Full Moon over Sydney Harbour

Sydney Harbour bridge and Opera House with full moon at twilight

Sydney Harbour really is one of the worlds great city views. There are thousands of beautiful city-scapes all over the world, but very few as beautiful or as immediately recognisable as Sydney‘s spectacular skyline. It really is just about as unique as they come with the world famous Sydney Opera House which was completed in […]


Beautiful Tahiti’an- like conditions on Oahu

Here in Hawaii, the trade winds blow almost year round from the Nth east, which is great in the hot summer months, but it also means that the wind is always onshore over on the east side of the island, so you rarely get to see the true beauty of the east side because of […]


The most beautiful surfboard, I’ve seen

Sage Joske with his beautiful hand made wooden surfboard

Folks, I attended a very special gathering of individuals back in 2007 on King Island in Australia . The gathering, initially labelled as Free Friction involved the riding of a large array of surfboards with the main aim of no fins on the boards, although a few weird finned creations also turned up, one very […]


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 […]


Fireworks as 4th of July celebrations descend on Turtle Bay

4th of July fireworks at Turtle Bay, on the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Hey folks, hope you’re all having a great 4th of July weekend, those of you in the U.S. Here’s a picture of the fireworks from Turtle Bay last night with the infamous Pool Bar in the foreground…


Home Sweet Home

Landing in Honolulu

Lane and I just spent the last couple of days over on the BIG island of Hawaii, relaxing and checking the place out a little. Lane grew up on the Big island, so she’s always stoked to go back there. She even got a couple of decent surfs in at Banyons while we were there. […]


Genuine real-Deal Waimea Close-Out

Waimea Close-Out December 8th 2009

This my friends is the dreaded close-out set wave at Waimea Bay. Surfers in the water, dread the very idea of one coming through while they are in the lineup. The spectators of course have a whole different outlook, being safely on land and for the most part, out of harms way. No matter where […]


Leopard Peak

OK folks, time for another random wave, this one coming at you from Gas Chambers, next to Rocky Point , on the north shore of Oahu . I titled this one: “Leopard Peak” because of the leopard skin like pattern in the wave’s foreground. And like most off season days here on the north shore, […]


Huntington Beach Pier, this morning

Huntington Beach Pier, just this morning.

Hey Folks, I shot this cool image of Huntington Beach Pier in Southern California, this morning. We don’t really have anything like these piers in Hawaii, so it’s pretty cool to get a chance to photograph ’em. Enjoy!
