Waimea Bay Surfing Drone Video.

Monday, February 29th, 2016

The most famous surf contest in memory of Eddie Aikau almost happened today, but the ocean had different plans. The swell filled in during the afternoon and there were a lot of big waves being ridden. These are some of the gnarliest drone shots I have gotten of surfing. Many near crashes with waves and definitely lots of spray on the drone after every flight. Well worth it.

***Added because so many people have been asking what drone this is. This is my disclaimer: Do not use DJI products. Their drones are extremely faulty, cheaply made, and DJI has the worse customer service when their products fail. I have personally experienced and I have seen many drones malfunction, crash or fall out of the sky as a result of drone/battery malfunction. I have been using DJI drones for a couple of years and I was hoping they would get more reliable with their product and services and I am still hoping.

Hawaii, Du Ciel: Episode 2

Friday, January 15th, 2016

You wouldn’t ever call a full grown grizzly bear friendly, no matter how nice it may appear, just like how you wouldn’t call Pipeline inviting. But if you ever were to, it would probably look like this:

For the past few days, the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout has been basking in some of the most pristine North Shore conditions one could ever ask for. Glassy, light winds, big ‘ol teepees, and all-around clean as a whistle. So to give you an even more enjoyable perspective of this divine forty eight hours, we present to you the second installment of Hawaii Du Ciel. A bird’s eye view of one of the most beautifully intimidating places on earth. Enjoy the above two minutes – and keep telling yourself she’s friendly.

Pipe Pro from the Photographer’s View

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Brian Bielmann, Larry Haynes, and Parker Coffin provide insight from different vantage points. Pipeline was proper, firing at 8-10 ft plus from the northwest, all lefts and nothing mellow about her, giving the Round of 96 and 64 opportunities for that “heat you’ve always dreamed of.”

Kelly Slater Perfect 10 Volcom Pro 2014

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

Lol it just never ends really – I quote my good friend and ex. 80’s pro Dave Kennedy…

“Kelly’s surfing prowess and competitive feats are otherworldly. And yet I feel his real genius lies in his uncanny ability throughout the entirety of his career to remain “one of the boys.” It shows up massively on days like this one, it is infinitely more difficult in my book to excel in a local event like this as compared to the “big” show for a top seed. Kelly is an amazing example of the axiom, “how one does one thing is how one should do everything.” Adaptability and malleability are hallmarks of his character. Bravo!!!”

Buttons Kaluhiokalani Tribute at Malibu

Friday, January 31st, 2014

A soulful tribute to Montgomery “Buttons” Kaluhiokalani, a Hawaiian surfing legend immortalized at Malibu, November 9th, 2013

It is with great sadness that Buttons Kaluhiokalani passed away in California, surrounded by his family and friends. Buttons was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer.

Kelly Slater… “When I was about 8 years old, I saw a surf movie with ‘Buttons’ Kaluhiokalani and he immediately became #MyFavoriteSurfer. He was switching stances and sliding 360’s in the tube and doing carving 3’s. Surfing just looked like more fun the way he did it. He surfed the way I wished I could mind surf. He had a ‘fro Rob Machado would kill for and a physique in his 50’s of someone in their 20’s. He planted more seeds in people’s brains than he could have ever known. Buttons, we’ll all miss your stoke and big smile and seeing you at Chun’s giving surf lessons every day. Thank you for the inspiration and ideas. Give #AIForever a big high five for us all! Love to all your friends and family.”

Buttons was a former Hawaiian Pro Surfer and is well known for his radical and stylish surfing. In 1973, at the age of 13, Buttons traveled to the US Championships in Malibu, California, as an amateur, where he placed second. Seven years later, Buttons won the Sunkist Open at Malibu.

During the 70′s Buttons really perfected the progressive style of surfing he is so well known for. Uncle Eddie Rothman calls him “the Innovator of Modern Day Surfing.” Buttons was the first to perform a carving 360 on film.

A true Style Master, Buttons is renowned for his pocket surfing, switch foot and skateboard inspired maneuvers.

In addition to his lifelong pursuit of riding waves, Buttons also ran Buttons Surf School on the North Shore of Oahu. He would teach anyone, at any skill level or age, the joy of riding waves. Buttons was also very generous, volunteering with many charities including the Mauli Ola Foundation and AccesSurf, where he would share his love of the waves with disabled children and adults.

Buttons was always willing to give and share with a smile; a true Ambassador of Aloha.

Buttons is survived by his wife Hiriata Hart, his eight children, and nine grandchildren. Please keep Buttons ohana in your thoughts and prayers.

Music: Brother Noland, “Ka Ipo Lei Manu”

Vice – Clark Little Photographer

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

Clark Little is one of the few photographers there who has been drawing his own lines since he started taking photos of the Hawaiian shore-break. In fact he used to surf the Wiamea shorebreak when everyone else was in the lineup and is obviously familiar with the ins and outs of a barrel that breaks on the sand.

Mark Cunningham – The Myth Exposed

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

Excellent documentary from 2007 of Mark Cunningham the world’s most dedicated bodysurfer. Lots of insights into the man and his North Shore activism. Guys like Mark have kept the North Shore “country” through their focused efforts and deserve continuity. OK so outside of the serious stuff is a tour of the reef and the shore at Pipeline.
