Classic Sunset - Feb 26th 2010

I was surprised to stumble upon pretty good quality surf at Sunset a few days ago. It’s taken me till now to get a clip together. Enjoy! Aloha Sean Epic Sunset Beach


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


Amazing crystal clear conditions on the north shore

Absolutely beautiful conditions here on the north shore yesterday and I guess we could be expecting more today. I just love it here when it settles down and produces days like this.

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 […]


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 […]


photo-art of the day; “Single Fin Surfer”

This is a photo of my friend James Arthur Smith just after a late afternoon surf at Rockies Rockies. This photo’s cool. Aloha Sean


great bodysurfing conditions at Off The Wall this morning

Off The Wall this morning was such perfect surf for bodysurfing. So clean and green out there. This one guy; Kevin Murphy scored a sick barrel right in front of me. He’s stoked on the photo….


Sunrise from the north shore

I thought I’d start the day off today with a Kapono Nahina stand up paddle surfing during sunrise at Monster Mush, on the north shore. Aloha Sean


A pleasant afternoon on the north shore

It’s been a few days of relentless wind and rain squalls, so it was a bit of a pleasant surprise when it turned sunny with light off-shores this afternoon. I guess everyone was watching it because there were way more photographers than name surfers at Off The Wall, this afternoon. There’s so much sand sitting […]


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 […]


Every which way but up

A ton of crew have descended on the north shore during the last week and there were so many faces out there today that I didn’t recognise. This was one of them and he wasn’t holding back. Sean


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.


The family that surfs together

What was the old saying; “the family that eats together, stays together”. Up here on the north shore, we have a few surf Dynasty’s happening, but none more noticable right now that the Ho family. I featured former world champ; Derek Ho just a couple of weeks ago here, ruling Pipe with his smooth deep […]


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 […]


first blood, 2009 season

We had our first north swell pulse of the season over the past couple of days. It wasn’t really anything epic, but hey, it was still August, which is pretty early for north pulses. Here’s a few pic’s of the crew doing their thing at early season rockies….
