I woke up to a beautiful still morning, so I grabbed the water camera and went hunting for some watery gems. This is one of three images in particular that I really liked.


Use the light as your paint source

I’ve spent more than 20 years chasing perfect full sunlight, to shoot for surfing magazines, all over the globe. I’ve personally always had a real taste for the visually different, but for a long time there, all the magazines wanted to see was tight action in perfect bright sunlight, showing off all the sponsor logos […]


Beach Picket Fence

Anyone who has surfed on the north east coastal areas of the United States will immediately recognise these rustic throwbacks to the past. They can be found all the way up and down the east coast of the United States and are beach picket fences, often found in very random arrangements. This here is a […]


A green glow in the water this morning

Often, when the weather conditions are just correct, I like to get up in the dark and go to some of the more out of the way places around here. The reason that I get up in the dark is that I like to be on location, even in the water all ready to shoot […]


Persistent VOG makes for spectacular twilight

Here in the Hawaiian islands, it’s the change of the seasons from Summer to Winter and during the change over, we tend to lose our trade winds. This results in a lot of Volcanic ash in our atmosphere riding the Kona Winds from the south west. We have that much of it in the air […]


Lanikai beach in Hawaii One of the best beaches in the USA

I’ve lived in Hawaii now for 15 years already, yet I’ve spent so little time on the south east coasts of the island. Being very involved with the surf industry for most of those 15 years, I pretty much always gravitated around the north shore. Since I started building my business, selling my art images […]


Gifts from the sea.

I’ve always had an interest in the seaside, all the way from a when I was a small child. The smell of the drying kelp on the beach, the scuttling of sand crabs as you approach. It’s all standard fare at the beach. What I’ve always dug on though are sea shells. They seem to […]


Calm conditions deliver great surf-art opportunities.

Most folks who know my photography, often know how much I’ve always pursued and photographed waves. Sometimes, it’s not even the waves at all that I shoot, but maybe the foam that was left behind or a random bit of water leaping over the edge of the beach. Perhaps a shell buried in the sand. […]


There’s nothing like a roll around the shore-break, to start the day out

…my favourite thing has always been to capture the sun coming up while in the surf, itself.


Hawaii’an sunrises are quite unique

Tubing wave at sunrise.

I’ve been dawn patrolling it a little in the past week. Been getting up in the dark and hitting the beach early, looking for interesting sunrise images that are typically unique to both Hawaii and the surf culture that we enjoy here on the north shore, year round. I managed to snag this beautiful image […]


Redondo Pier in LA has a cool surf beach

On the last morning of my recent Californian road trip, we checked out Redondo pier in Los Angeles county in the early morning twilight , before I headed off back to Hawaiion the 9.40 am flight. I’d photographed piers all the way up and down the so cal and central Cal coasts, but never saw […]


Capitola, a truly beautiful Californian town

Folks I’ve been on the road in California for the past week. We’ve just been driving up the coast from Huntington beach in So Cal and after several days, have made our way as far as Santa Cruz. We started off this morning’s photographing at a beautiful little town called Capitola. Nothing appeared to be […]


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 […]


Pipeline Lagoon pumping

South Swell at Pipeline beach

I was up early this morning to check out the new pulse of swell. There was hardly anyone anywhere. A few random tourists and the usual but where were all the surfers?… It didn’t really bother me though, I just slipped into Daveys Wavey Gravy mode and took pictures of the waves in the lagoon. […]


Haleiwa Beach Park, this morning

My fellow Tasmanian friend Joni Lee James is currently visiting the north shore, here in Hawaii and tagged along on one of my early morning photo shoots, this morning. We started by checking Sunset beach, then on to Rocky Point, but no inspiration awaited here either, on to Log Cabin, nup!… Then Waimea had a […]


Surfing towards the light

Sunrise surfing at Rocky Point.

It’s round this time of the year ( August ) that the seasons start to change and we see hints of the coming north shore swell season. This image which I entitled Towards the light was taken during a small mid year bump of swell at Rocky lefts. As you can see the sun is […]


Kahana Sunrise

Sunrise over Kahana Bay, on Oahu, Hawaii.

This is another of my images from yesterday morning’s glorious sunrise here in Hawaii. I was actually headed at the time for Lanikai, further to the south but as I rounded Kahana Bay, I could see that the sun was almost rising already, so I scouted out a spot and waited for the first rays […]


early morn’ over San Clemente

San Clemente Pier, Orange County, California

Another in my California series, this is San Clemente pier , just this morning. The weather wasn’t so crash hot, in fact it was drizzling at times, but I still managed to nail down the shot. Next on my list is the beautiful Catalina Island . Stay tuned for updates and in the meantime, you […]


Huntington Beach Pier, this morning

Huntington Beach Pier, just this morning.

Hey Folks, I shot this cool image of Huntington Beach Pier in Southern California, this morning. We don’t really have anything like these piers in Hawaii, so it’s pretty cool to get a chance to photograph ’em. Enjoy!


4th of July at a leisurely north shore pace

Hi all this is actually now the 5th of July, but I thought I would post something about how the 4th of July looked from this little corner of the world, out here on the north shore of Oahu in Hawaii, out in the middle of the Pacific. I actually started my day off very […]


Groove Tube

I just love to photograph waves, eh. Got a few more this morning, but here’s a cool one from yesterday which I’ve named “Groove Tube” Yew! Sean for prints, send an email to: roger@waveridersgallery.net or myself direct at fineart@seandavey.com And if you want to see a selection of other images, go to my main page […]
