My cool underwater gear from Essex

I just wanted to throw a shout out to my buddy; Mike Waggoner, who makes all the cool Essex water housings that I use to protect my valuable camera gear from the elements. I love using Mike’s housings because they are simple to operate and are very light, which is of utmost importance when swimming […]

The Surf Bus

The north shore is no stranger to tour bus’s. We see ’em all the time, but it’s not every day that you see one like this. This is the surf bus. Some friends of ours are running tours to see the surf beaches. They used a bunch of my photos to make their bus look […]

One in a million moment

It was October the 13th in 2004 and I had just rocked up to the beach to see if I could get some decent surf shots against the setting sun at at Rocky point. There I was on the beach looking at this full on solar eclipse and then I noticed Flynn Novak out there […]

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. The place has a much more colorful past than most surf destinations and it thoroughly is deserving of […]

shades of Pipe

I went and scoped Pipe this evening as the sun was disappearing behind a gray curtain of cloud. It was showing signs of wanting to come to life, good and proper. Not quite though, maybe in the morning. Sean

Yesterday at The Pipe Trials

Finally after a month and half, Pipeline has awoken and just in time for the HIC Pipeline Trials. A one day event in which local surfers compete for 1 of 8 spots in the Pipeline masters later in the year. So unlike most events, there was be no need for Semi finals. They simply wrapped […]

HIC Pipe Trials are GO today

It seems like forever since the pro tour left here and the conditions went bad. It’s been a month and a half since. Now, I’m writing this the night before, but by the time you read this, the HIC Pipe trials should be happening. It’s bound to be dramatic because after a month and a […]

Classic surf moment: Tom Curren

It was the 94-95 Hawaiian season and I had just swum out for a leisurely shoot at Off The Wall, early one afternoon, when I spotted non other than Tom Curren taking off, so I put in the extra effort and was actually bodysurfing the wave as I shot it. This allows me to squeeze […]

Musica Surfica with Derek Hynd and Richard Tognetti

I was given the unique invitation to photograph a gathering on the remote farming community of King Island in Australia. This was no ordinary gathering. It involved key members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) along with key proponents of alternative surfcraft, in particular, finless boards. There were wooden Alaya boards, made like the ancient […]

Classic surf contest moment; Bells Beach 1996

I was at the 1996 Rip Curl pro at Bells Beach in Australia. They had elected to move the event next door to winkipop on this day because it was 6-8 feet and going off. I witnessed Occy, Slater and Curren, all in excellent form on this day, but it was the guy from “Jersey” […]

Rabbit retires from ASP

I was a teenager when the first wave of pro surfers emerged in the 70’s. As a young impressionable Aussie grommet, these guys totally were my heros, back then. I’ve pretty much seen the birth and growth of surfing as a profession during Rabbit’s time on the world stage. Three cheers to Rab’ and everyone […]

Fine art prints from Sean Davey

If you are anything like me, you may well have a strong fascination with waves. I love waves of all shapes and sizes. The very first picture that I ever photographed was of a wave. A wave that was too small to surf, but very perfect in shape. I offer my pictures for sale as […]

Another day of small fun beachies in a giant swimming pool

Hi all it’s been another stellar day of weather here on the north shore, but with small surf. The water is so clear here at the moment, it looks like a massive wave pool right now. All these perfect little waves rolling through super clear water. It’s nice when it’s like this. So good for […]

Classic surf moment of Bruce Irons

I have a lot of classic surf shots from over the years, but one guy who I have so many really classic moments of is Bruce Irons. I took a look through my archive, and man, he just cleaned up when I separated all the truly great images from the bulk. I’ll probably be featuring […]

Fun waves at Ehukai Beachie’s

Hi All, I went for a bit of a swim this morning just because the sun was out and it was all nice and shiny and I just wanted to get wet. Here’s a few pics that I got along the way….

Classic surf moment Gerry Lopez

Here’s another classic surf moment folks. This one I think from 1995 at the Pipe Masters, Gerry Lopez doing one of his classic soul bottom turns. It’s not that big a wave, but a classic moment, all the same. Enjoy Sean
