My canvas tribute to the north shore

I’ve been living here on the world famous north shore  of Oahu now for almost 17 years.  I remember when I first moved here.  I had to find a house to rent when I first arrived and was amazed to pick up the top floor of a sick beach house, right at Pipe with the best […]


Classic “One in a million” photograph

Flynn Novak Flynstone Flip with Solar Eclipse (real)

…and I’ve just shot a total one in a million image that I know I’ll never be able to repeat again, no matter how hard I try.


The mystique of black and white.

I’ve been very, very familiar with black and white photography over the years, especially back in the day. I’ve processed countless rolls of Kodak Tri-X, Ilfopan and Agfapan over the years. Always a thrill to pop the neg’s on top of a sheet of paper and put a sheet of glass over before exposing the […]


The Flynnstone Flip finally captured

I first photographed Flynn Novak doing his signature maneuver The Flynnstone Flip way back in 2004 and despite him not quite riding out of the flip, Tracks magazine was stoked to run it as a double page spread. I finally broke that curse a couple of days ago and captured a full flip and he […]


Australia – check it out!

it’s always a bit of an adventure, jumping fences, being chased by bulls or angry farmers


A touch of Tahiti and big wave surfing

I’ve traveled to Tahiti numerous times over the years and it’s always an astonishingly beautiful place to visit. Many first time visitors will agree that it’s much like what one imagines Hawaii being like 100 years ago. Life is a simple contented existence on the land for many Tahitians, particularly out in the country areas. […]

Club Of The Waves focus’s on Sean Davey photography

I’m way more of an artist that a documenter.


A thought for our surfing friends in Japan.

…but the reality now is that the whole area is looking to be polluted more than twice as much as Chernobyl


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 Widow Maker

Surfing the deep southern wilderness of South West National Park, in Tasmania, Australia.

Folks, deep in the southern Tasmanian wilderness, quite some considerable distance away from the end of the road lies this gem of a place, known by the locals asThe Widow Maker. The reason they call it the Widow Maker is that this point is lined with dead trees that were burnt out by a massive […]


Classic surf shot – Stuart “Daff” Cadden

Stuart "Daff" Cadden perfectly slotted somewhere, I'd rather not tell you about...

I just posted this classic surf shot of Stuart “Daff” Cadden, in response to an on line coverstion with my mate Bill Morris, who claims that “Daff” had the best pigdog style of any surfer at the time and I’m inclined to agree. Check him out right here… yew!


Parafina Magazine No 29

Parafina Magazine No 29 (storm front over Teahupoo)

Folks, I just checked out the latest issue of Parafina Magazine from brazil, this one focusing quite intensely on Tahiti in the south Pacific. I scored the cover as well as 22 double page spreads with my Tahiti images. Check it out here. .


Flynn Novak Bro’file

Flynn Novak bro'file

Folks, I’ve known Flynn for pretty much the whole 15 years that I’ve lived on the north shore and he seriously is the most talented surfer with the least sponsors, I’ve ever seen. The poor guy has had n extraordinarily bad run with less than quality sponsors and he’s really looking for a company home […]


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 […]


Epic Sunset Beach a few days ago

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


Amazing image of the day

under water view of photographer and surfer at Pipeline

It is always my intent to keep this website not only informative and a great destination for surf photography and all things ocean related, but also to keep it entertaining for my many repeat visitors, who keep coming back to see what I’ve been up to, time and time again. Todays little offering is a […]


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


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 […]


YLS mag features Davey Photography

I’ve been working behind the scenes for a while now with Adam over at yourlocalsurf.com He’s been putting out his own on- line surf mag for about a year now and I’ve helped him with the last couple of issues. This issue features some of my sequence photography of Teahupoo in Tahiti, right on the […]


Another Monster day at the Bay in store for tomorrow

We are expecting another huge swell at Waimea Bay tomorrow morning. Already the buoys have hit 25 feet, 17 seconds and are set to go higher till sometime tomorrow morning. I’ll be up in the dark tomorrow morning, scoping out the Bay. I might have a new swag of pictures to show tomorrow evening. Time […]


Taj Burrow takes the 2009 Pipe Masters mantel

They ran the finals of the Pipe Masters yesterday and although it wasn’t exactly real Pipeline, it was a lot better than some previous finals days. At least we had tubes offer. There was only one Hawaiian surfer left in the mix, my good friend Flynn Novak who was up against Kelly Slate. Flynn’s the […]


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 […]
