The Cabin
This cabin is an emergency shelter north of Vancouver Island and is practically in the middle of nowhere, just off a logging road along the coast. No cell service and no civilisation for at least a couple of hours in any direction. A handwritten sign

The Hike In
Camera: Canon 5d Mk IV Settings: f4 @1/1600 sec Lens: Sigma Art 50mm f1.4 I’m a sucker for an all-time lineup shot. There’s something about being able to mind surf the hell out of an empty wave way beyond your surfing capabilities that really gets me

Ray
I met Ray in Tahiti in 2015. I had long been an admirer of his work and we were introduced by our mutual sponsor who make water housings. We were lucky to get one of the heaviest swells of the year in late July while Ray was here and, after the swell

In Queensland and Northern New South Wales, there’s a small window just after sunrise when the sun really lights up the waves. Thanks to the angle of the light, it looks like the translucent walls are being lit from within. This distinctive look was

This photo was shot at Bank Vaults in the Mentawais on one of my first Billabong campaigns with Wade Goodall. A heavy squall came through but it was fun for airs out there, so we both stuck it out to get the glassy conditions after the storm had pass

My plane had just landed on the tarmac when I received a text from my good friend and filmer, Nate Laverty, claiming that a hurricane was hitting Nova Scotia and they were catching a redeye flight that night. The waves were predicted to be all time.
