Spelunking

Yo haoles. I’ve learnt a new word today, spelunking. In the states they use it to describe ‘cave hunting’. You wake up here in Hawaii, walk out onto your deck and someone, somewhere is deeply grinding in the back of a barrel (or cave), grinning away and occasionally flashin’ the shaka. I saw a 10 […]

Aloha

I’m in Hawaii (HI), aloha. Oh and it’s 100% pumping. Got to the north shore and saw 10 guys get shacked off their nooonah in my first 15 minutes on the balcony. Wow. The waves are soo amazing here – a surf photographers dream. The swell charts for the next week look amazing. You’ll see […]

flakey

Not much going down at the beaches this morning. I looked around in hope of a stealth bump but only found flakey wind chop. Bondi was 1-2 and not much use to you, unless, of course you’re new to the sport and got ya self a mini mal for chrissy, deck grip and all. I […]

My Gear

The question I get asked all the time is what gear I use. So I hope this page answers all your questions. We are living in an amazing time and have access to affordable and sophisticated camera gear. Basically we’re spoilt for choice at the moment. I am lucky enough to use many cameras these […]

Mundee

Monday morning. A time to be serious after the weekend’s nonsense. Scanned all the swell charts and have come to the assumption that this week is going to be predominantly a surfless one. A little wind bump may pop up here and there, but there’s not much until a decent swell arrives on Sunday from […]

Meet Beau Walker. This man is bustin’ at the seams with explosive energy – he’s on 12 when the dial only goes to 10. Picture a kid high as a kite on a double espresso followed by a litre of Red Bull and you’ll be on par with Beau’s hyperactiveness. He’s 25, grew up in […]

Sitting on the shoreline with a big lens wasn’t gonna happen today. With perfect 24 degree water I had to get in the drink for a swim around with the camera. The waves weren’t perfect (1-2 footers) and the rip in the middle was on turbo – nonetheless an amazing morning to get wet. Do […]

Well, it’s no Kirra out the front that’s for sure…. not even Kirra’s inferior brother. I’ve been drooling over all that footage from Queensland’s gem’s on Sunday, then glancing back out the window looking at Bondi’s 2 foot onshore dribbles thinking – where did I go wrong? Surfing shouldn’t be high on your agenda for […]

Change

Yesterday morning was the best of it! The cooling south change arrived mid-afternoon on Monday bringing wind, rain and disrupting our surf. Right now Bondi is a super junkie 3 foot and onshore. The burning sun has been replaced with clouds and rain. Nothing really special happening until the weekend where we should see some […]
