Im a lucky man...... wife is an amazing cook, and i love to eat, a match made in heaven. My cousin Marc is a lucky man too as his wife loves to cook, and he also loves to eat. So when Pauline, Cuzzys wife, talked about coming down to Devon to work on food styling shots for her portfolio with us you can understand the levels of excitement i felt with the thought of the 2 of them loose in the kitchen for a weekend.
We got some great pics, and here is a 'taste'.

meet Jason

I can thank my friend Jason Hearn for lots, we have shared loads of good times together, in and out the water, and he always seems to have a swell [and barrell!] magnet attached to him. He also loves to charge and is pretty damn committed to getting good waves, a fellow surf nazi if there ever was one.

Jason is working on a surf movie called The Africa Project and its gonna take the surf world by storm, i literally cant wait. Its going to be incredible on so many levels. Click here for more info.

One of the most recent things i have to thank Jay for, besides inspiring me to want to create beautiful movies, is getting me onboard for a filming gig he had going on with Redbull to celebrate Jordys 2nd pace finish last year on tour.

Thanks again Jay, and I look forward more good times.

Im a kook.....

......compared to my brother, who is a much better surfer than me, and actually still has loads of hair and is super skinny. Life can be a bitch. I drink beer better than him though.

Anyways here is him ripping on a day i would struggle getting to my feet.

The tune is by a crazily talented musician called John Fairhurst, and his own vid to this tune is well worth checking out.

A labour of love

Another Wavedreamer project, a promo piece for Gulfstream surfboards, true craftsmanship in the age of disposable product mentality.

Also producers of one of my favourite boards, Purple people eater the 2nd.

Dude, you scratched my Crystal.

An old hippie once told me that Baggy point in North Devon lies directly on a ley line of the earth, and a ley line has some sort of mysterious properties.

I dont know if this is true, but I do know that every time I come away from there i feel as if i have just had a truly magical experience.

Not sure if  this video will do her any justice, but if you see me wearing any tie dye, it might help you understand why.

if a tree falls and no one heard it......

.............did it really fall?

My friend Andrew charges waves that scare the shit out of me, and being a consumate professional, he generally tries to get these moments recorded so he can gain exposure for himself and his sponsors and therefore get paid more money to go get more big waves blah blah blah, its a bit like a dog chasing its tail really.

Anyways, here is a wavdreamer project I worked on for Andrew to help him in his quest to carry on putting himself in situations that would quite honestly terrify me, and hopefully see him avoiding a career in plumbing.
