Thiago Camarao, on the heaviest, freakiest, and most beautiful wave I’ve ever seen with my own two eyes. He rolled into this wave with such ease, it still amazes me. Pipeline, Hawaii.

Cyrus Sutton, cooling off in Neal Purchase Jnr’s saltwater pool in the mountains above Tweed, Australia. Cyrus and I linked up in Australia and were traveling around northern NSW when we arrived at Neal’s farm, who graciously let us stay and showed us around his home, waves and masterful shaping ability. Memories I will cherish forever :)

Craig Anderson at Dbah, Australia. This was the day I met Craig, as well as my first time shooting him. It took 4 hours of swimming against wicked currents, clouds of sea lice, jellyfish and the ever-changing sandbars to finally lineup for this shot. When Surfer Magazine ran it, it was my first double page spread, making it all worth it :)
