Northern NSW

Yesterday I went and shot some surf for about an hour at a spot on the North Coast of NSW. The waves have been pumping on the east coast for what seems like weeks and this was one of my first chances to sneak of and get some quick shots.

Thanks for looking!!!


Just Like Snapper

I watched a clip today and I was amazed at how similar this wave was to Snapper, In 2010 Snapper Rocks had really good banks and the waves on some of the days were amazing, some of the most perfect below sea level waves I have seen. Here is a few shots from that day and the clip as well.

 Now the Video

Good Friday Special

Happy Easter!

The Gold Coast was given pumping waves for the Easter break and I spent the last 2 days shooting down in Coolangatta. I would like to thank Carool Holiday Apartments for letting me shoot from their roof top! If you want to stay some where with amazing views definitely stat at Carool! Best view on the Gold Coast.

Burleigh Barrel Fest

Yesterday I went to Burlight Point as I heard it had been good in previous days, when I got there it was cranking! The cove was perfect and even Kelly Slater was there in on the action as well.

Here are some shots from the session, Enjoy!

Perfection!

The waves were so perfect and guys were making deep barrels.

Coolie Gold

This arvo I went down to Coolangatta to try and get some shots with some nice afternoon light. The waves were pretty good down at Snapper, not barreling to good but nice long clean walls if you could get one with out being dropped in on by 10 other surfers.  Snapper is like no other place, so many good waves get wasted by every one just dropping in on each other.

The colours after the sun had gone down were pretty good and there was a storm right about Surfers that looked pretty crazy.

Hope you like the Shots!

Morning Burleigh

I went to Burleigh Point this morning, like every morning at Burleigh you see lots of surfers, lots of people getting fit and lots of people drinking coffee at the Nook. The surf had dropped off alot but it looked perfect for a swim or for a gromm to learn on.

Hope you like the photos!

Back To The Beach

I got back to the beach this morning, I haven’t shot much coast stuff in recent times and I am going to try and shoot a few shots each day of what’s going on at the various famous Gold Coast beach’s.

This morning I went down to Coolie, The waves were in the 4 foot range and the tide was getting pretty full, the points would have been pumping if it was low tide but there were still long clean walls for the surfers. Dbah was not to bad, few ok barrels around.

Froggies Beach, the sun was trying to rise through the rain clouds.

Froggies Beach, some big sets were washing through this morning.

Duranbah, the banks didn’t look to bad.

Kirra Point, The Old girl was looking pretty good, the banks look good and I hope there is a big swell to light it up soon.

Thanks for Looking!


A Day At The Pro

Today I went down to the Quiksilver Pro at Snapper Rocks, It was round 2 and the waves were not perfect but definitely contestable. The stand out for me was Josh Kerr, to me Kerr has the full package and I look forward to seeing how high on the ratings he can climb this year.

Old Film Look

I love the look of old photo’s and while I was going through some shots that I took yesterday I thought I would try something on one of the photos, I like how it turned out and I like the Old arty look it gives and I think it suits the shot to.

Thanks for looking!!!


Sandy Rights and Rocky Slabs

Today was the first time that i have shot surf in over 6 months and it was great to get out and shoot it again, there was a good swell and pumping waves early in the morning but soon after the wind got into it and that was it for the day.
