Aloha…last night at 10pm it was 2 foot. Yep. Dos. The calm before the rogue storm. By midnight you could hear sets crumbling out the back. By sunrise it was 4-6 foot with 8 foot sets. At this point I took some photos…the Pipe Pro was called off as the forecast was showing an even […]

3rd Reef

Aloha. You’d probably gathered from the 1st shot today that I am still in Hawaii. Yes, I will return – just not now. A swell has arrived here in Hawaii. A mammoth rogue beast of a swell. When it gets big here on the North Shore a unique reef system makes the waves break far […]

Aloha. Happy Australia Day for yesterday. Looks a tad wet back home, and next week, wow, even wetter. Something broken with this summer! Back here on ‘The Rock’ we’ve had a bit swell arrive. Not huge, not good enough for them to run the Volcom Pipe Pro – but in my book, pretty darn good…look […]

Aloha. Looks like some swell coming in the next few days so I opted to shoot non-surfing stuff today. You’re gonna get enough surfing action…don’t fret. I reckon the Volcom Pipe Pro may kick off tomorrow as well. Loads of hot surfing talent around – just look in any direction and someone is doing an […]

I thought I’d never say it, but I am surfed out… The waves in Hawaii have been consistently above head high for weeks now – I’ve filled my quota. Today was small(ish) so I decided to go beneath the surface for a look around. This is what I found. The Volcom Pipe Pro waiting period […]

Hey there. We’re still on ‘The Rock’ … Hawaii that is. This volcanic island beauty sitting out in the middle of the Pacific attracting so much swell – especially at this time of year. I guess there is nothing around to block swell and the islands pretty much stick right out of the ocean – […]

Sand bar

Hey there. Once again small small, but the little sand bar out the front of the shack producing some nice little waves – and don’t they all know about it here. It’s packed. Loads of pro juniors and WCT slashers hustling for waves. It’s nice here. The water is 26 degrees. How good is that. […]

Aloha. The swell dropped another gear and a small windswell is in town here in Hawaii. Sounds similar to Sydney. It’s only 2-3 foot and the beach parks are a wash with major surfing talent. Everywhere you look… airs, hacks, cutties, reverses…The girls rip over here. Check out Coco Ho, niece of famous Derek Ho […]

7 mile…

Kinda strange day over here in Hawaii on the golden 7 mile stretch called the North Shore. Not many people around… Odd south wind seems to be hanging around, swell dropped a lot overnight (still 4-5 foot). Skies are grey and rain looks like it’s on the cards. The North Shore Surf Shop Pro Jnr […]
