A short beach themed slide show

Folks, this is a little slide show that I put together quite some time ago with a loosely based beach theme. There’s lot’s of cool clear waves and big wave surfers. There’s all manner of beach photographs, featuring surfers, wipeout pics and easy going surf lifestyles. There’s swim pictures, some amazing nature images of Hawaiian […]


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 […]


fins n’ palms

fins n' palms

I love finding pictures in all shapes, colors, tones and contrasts. This one seems to have captured a little bit of everything. The old rusting pick up truck with the surfboards hanging out the back, backdropped by a brilliant red twilight sky at Haleiwa beach park, on the north shore. Just perfect.


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 […]


Epic Sunset Beach a few days ago

Classic Sunset - Feb 26th 2010

Early Gold

Early Gold on the north shore

Another of my portraits, this one more of an environmental portrait in the truest sense really. My friend James Romero, out for an early surf with the rising sun, last year at Monster Mush, in the middle of summer. I just like the cruisy relaxed vibe that this picture gives off. Sean


“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


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.

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


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


A whole different state of mind to Hawaii

With all the radical weather that’s been hitting the U.S. and Europe this year, I thought I’d spare a thought for our colder surfing bretheren. As many of you know, I originated from a pretty cool place myself. The Australian island state of Tasmania, but unlike the Hawaii’an islands, this place isn’t tropical. What it […]


Awesome waves ensure, the Volcom Pipe Pro go’s off!

My wife Lane has been waiting just about all season for the ugly sandbar to move away and let Pipe do it’s thing properly. Finally, it did this morning, all be it under still ragged and large swell which at times was rolling entire heats of contestents. Those contestents found themselves in a real life […]

Huge perfect Waimea for every man – Jan 11th 2010

The Eddie Aikau big wave surfing contest has a commanding presence over Waimea Bay. Each year, surf season comes around and whenever there’s a sniff of a Waimea swell, there are hoards of sponsored big wave surfers all over it. This year was no different leading up to the Eddie, with quite possibly the most […]

We are expecting another huge swell at Waimea Bay tomorrow morning. Already the buoys have hit 25 feet, 17 seconds and are set to go higher till sometime tomorrow morning. I’ll be up in the dark tomorrow morning, scoping out the Bay. I might have a new swag of pictures to show tomorrow evening. Time […]


Almost empty lineups lead to dream surfs for lucky few

They again called off the Backdoor Shootout event this morning and when I passed my wife coming back early from that direction, I figured, it couldn’t be good. Strangely enough, I guess the tide turned at the moment that I arrived because there were crew getting pretty deeply shacked at Pipe Barrel going down as […]


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 […]


Did you surf Waimea on the 5th and the 7th of December?

I’ve had numerous surfers ask me about getting pictures from the Waimea sessions on the 5th and the 7th of december, right before the Eddie, so I went through all the pictures (and there’s a lot) and I placed a large gallery of images on my print site for you to look at. Normally when […]
