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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


“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


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 […]


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 […]

More storm surf on the north shore, but a few more ridable waves too

My wife dawn patrols. Lane‘s usually down at WQS surf event starting there tomorrow and the surfers would want to be getting their practice in. I wasn’t wrong either. There was a healthy crew of surfers all over it, many of them getting caught inside by solid left handers from the west as well as […]


Update on the current big swell event in the Hawaii’an islands

Yesterday’s big wave episode really didn’t pan out to be that great. The swell was coming up all day long but the weather conditions deteriated to about as dark as you can get with regular rain showers and stuff. I started out by checking out Sunset. There were a couple of guys trying to get […]


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 […]
