The Pipeline book by Surfline

Surfline recently published a large coffee table book, simply called “The Pipeline”. It’s an amazing 200 page package that covers everything Pipeline, ranging from the old days right through just about every major moment, ever captured there.

Hawaii loses one of it’s best big wave surfers

Sion surfed what some were calling the best days of their lives yesterday. He’d been out all day. It was late and he was looking to “catch that last wave in”.


Helicopter produces amazing aerial panavista’s

Flynn Novak tubed at Pipeline.

As a professional photographer, I have a lot of tools at my fingertips. Some cameras, a bunch of high quality lens, some specialized water proof camera box’s to protect my gear when I’m swimming with it and a whole bunch more other gear, but one item clearly stands out. I don’t get to use it […]


What lies beneath

An overview of Waimea Bay's legendary reef.

Folks, you ever wondered what the reef might look like at such extraordinary big wave locations such as Pipeline or Waimea. I’ve been fortunate enough to fly over the north shore a couple of times when there was little in the way of surf. As a result, the reef’s become very clear to the eye, […]


Hawaii’s beautiful Sacred Falls

helicopter overview of Sacred Falls on the east side of Oahu, Hawaii

Folks, One of Hawaii‘s most beautiful waterfalls is located on the east side of Oahu, but has been off limits to the public for the past decade, since a rockslide tragedy killed some folks. Pretty much the only legal way to see the falls these days is on a helicopter charter. This one, I did […]

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.

More goodness from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil

While I was in Rio, a group of us headed up to the statue of “Christ the redeemer”. It was truly amazing, how they have built a road up to such a high narrow mountain pass. Looking out over Rio from this vantage point is amazing and intimidating all at once. Such a beautiful looking […]


The Surfers Journal

There are a lot of magazines out there in the surf scene, but only a few that are in the ball park of The Surfers Journal for sheer readability. A formula of way less advertisments, made possible by a higher purchase cost, makes way for articles which frankly have a lot more depth than those […]
