September reveals beautiful moments from the sea

September is traditionally a quiet month. It’s right on the very end of the summer doldrums and sitting right in the pathway of the first big winter storms that bounce off Japan, and usually drop down on top of Hawaii. It hasn’t really happened just yet this year except for a couple of very short-lived […]


Honolulu’s Ala Moana Bowls pumps!

I’ve lived here on the island of Oahu since late 1997 and the best I ever did see the waves look at Ala Moana was that very same year. That was till yesterday, June the 6th. Strong trades groomed the lineup and fanned the spray into clean plumes of water, off the back of the […]


As perfect as Pipe gets

Derek Ho's awesome Barrel on Jan 21st 2011

I’ve been photographing the north shore for almost 20 years and although there are a lot of really great Pipe surfers, some absolutely stand out on their own. One such surfer is 1993 world surfing champion; Derek Ho. I usually only see him

It’s a cool place with all kinds of amazing places to see, not least, the beautiful beach’s that surround it. Cheers! Monty Python’s Australia


Perfect surf line-ups everywhere

Folks, there is a whole world of perfect surfing waves out there. I’ve touched on quite a few of them over the years during my travels and certainly there are many that I still haven’t gone anywhere near, but what is amazing, is how many perfect waves still exist out there, so many still unridden. […]


New UNDER WATER pictorial of the NORTH SHORE

"Through the looking glass" with Sean Davey

The surf forecasting website; Surfline, just featured another new pictorial of my images as part of their ongoing “6 weeks on the north shore” features. In this pictorial, I’ve focused entirely on what’s going on under water around the north shore. Here, you’ll find out what Pipeline’s reef looks like from up close and personal, […]


Featured art print of the day – “Evening Glass”

"Evening Glass" - shown here as a Triptych Canvas

Folks, today, I present to you one of my personal favourite wave images – Evening Glass I photographed this one several years ago in Tahiti at the end of a very long day out in the boat. As we motored back into the Marina, these perfect waves were rolling along behind us, and so I […]


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 […]


Winter swells finally here on the north shore

Rockpile just before sunset.

Folks, we’ve had waves here on the north shore for just over a week now, but yesterday it kicked up a notch with 10 foot set waves. I ended up shooting Rockpile both in the morning and again in the afternoon. It always seems that best wavesat the Rockpile can always be found early season. […]


Wakeboarders taking it to big Tahitian waves

This is something that I worked on several years back with RedBull. The worlds 2 best (then) wakeboarders, taking their flat water gig to the big Tahitian waves. The wakeboarders were legendary Parks Bonifay already with a few world titles under his arm, along with then hot sensation from


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 […]
