Surf Travel – The Complete Guide

Surf Travel is a new book about, well, surf travel of course. Edited by former Carve Magazine editor Chris Power from Orca Publications UK it covers every aspect of surf travel and exploration from where to go, where to stay, what equipment to take, how to get in shape for your trip, how to stay healthy abroad, and how to make the most of your time away. Focusing on 50 of the worlds most prized surf destinations it is packed with essential tips and almost as importantly for a book, awesome photos.

Ok the above was copy and pasted from Orca the publishers website but I’ve just received one in the post and it’s really cool! For me surfing means travel and travel means surfing…  what a way to see the world and experience everything it has to offer. If you at all see the world like this, go out and get a copy here. Plus I’ve got one or two photos in it so that’s pretty cool!

Probably one of my personal favorite line-up shots I’ve taken over the years. Simply because Skeleton Bay is one of the more challenging places to capture as a whole and even though this is just a part of the wave you start to get an idea of what makes it so special. Stoked to see the image in print and running as a DPS in the latest issue of Hardcore Magazine in Brazil.

The Walk…

Much has been said about Namibia’s most famous wave, the endless barrel, the power, the remoteness, the fickleness and of course the long long walk up the point…

Simon Fish early on in the day when running was still an option ha-ha! Spread in latest issue of Brazilian mag Fluir

NY Surf Film Festival

My partner in crime, Jay Hearn Dog has been rubbing shoulders with the big wigs of the Surf Film Industry recently. He is currently in New York promoting his movie, the Africa Project and getting great reviews. So stoked for him, he really deserves it! Jay mailed me these snap shots of my photos from the movie which run inside front and back cover of the festivals program. Not too shabby we think! Told him to bring me back a copy. Keep it up Jay, awesome stuff!

Recent Spreads

Some recent spreads appearing in the latest issue of Zigzag and it’s 2012/13 Boardshorts Guide. I remember the grab rail shot of Chris Leppan really well. It was a perfect day down the South Coast with a nice ground swell running, a land breeze and some good barrels were coming through. Positioning in the water was a little tricky that day with the banks but i could see that straight after the barrel on the outside was nice section and kept going to Chris, grab your rail, grab your rail. He doesn’t need any pointers from me though… ha-ha but he jammed his rail and nailed the shot, nice one buddy, Stoked!
