A short beach themed slide show

Folks, this is a little slide show that I put together quite some time ago with a loosely based beach theme. There’s lot’s of cool clear waves and big wave surfers. There’s all manner of beach photographs, featuring surfers, wipeout pics and easy going surf lifestyles. There’s swim pictures, some amazing nature images of Hawaiian […]


north shore, readying for the influx

Luke Stedman weaving amongst the photog's at Kodak Reef

Folks, I was asked by an over seas magazine editor just yesterday for an image of many photographers, jostling for the same image and boy, did I have one. I zeroed straight in on an absolute gem of TJ Barron about to get barreled at Kodak Reef. This picture is actually Luke Stedman from the […]


Beautiful conditions finally return to the north shore

Pancho Sullivan flaring at Pupukea Sandbar, this morning.

It’s been like 2 weeks of bad weather here on the north shore, so it was soooooo good to see the sunny conditions return to the north shore and with no winds. I went for a bit of a swim at Pupukea sandbar this morning with Pancho Sullivan, Carissa Moore and Myles Padaca. I guess, […]


Early Gold

Early Gold on the north shore

Another of my portraits, this one more of an environmental portrait in the truest sense really. My friend James Romero, out for an early surf with the rising sun, last year at Monster Mush, in the middle of summer. I just like the cruisy relaxed vibe that this picture gives off. Sean


“Waimea Power” nets another double

Gig poster for Kehau Sullivan's Aloha Jam on the 5th of March.

As many of you know, it’s been an amazing season here for really big surf. One of my favourite images from the recent big swell episodes was one such image that I captured late in the day before the Eddie ran. This picture of several surfers just scraping over a huge set wave at

Waimea Power

I was recently approached by a representative of the prestigious Annenberg Space for Photography, requesting my participation in an upcoming international show dedicated to sports photography.

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


A whole different state of mind to Hawaii

With all the radical weather that’s been hitting the U.S. and Europe this year, I thought I’d spare a thought for our colder surfing bretheren. As many of you know, I originated from a pretty cool place myself. The Australian island state of Tasmania, but unlike the Hawaii’an islands, this place isn’t tropical. What it […]

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 […]

Mick Fanning wins the world surfing championship at the Pipe masters

It was an amazing day of surfing at the Pipe Masters. Mick Fanning won his round three heat against young Hawaiian; Torrey Meister, keeping the dream alive, then the ball fell into Joel Parkinson‘s court for his matchup against Hawaiian surfer Gavin Gillette. Joel pretty much had the heat till a couple of minutes to […]


Pipe Masters runs another half day before holding off for the big stuff

It’s been a couple of days of the Pipe Masters already, but everyone’s is in such a daze after the recent Giant swell episode that the appeal of the Pipe Masters is not as it usually would be. Given that it’s only 3-5 foot on average, doesn’t help with one’s enthusiasm that much. We are […]


Awesome day at the Eddie Aikau big wave surfing invitational

Hi all, wow, what a few days, it has been. I slept over at the Rip Curl Off The Wall house the night before the contest because they said the roads would be closed down and I wanted to be right there, where it was all going down. The rumble of the ocean was just […]
