Buttery Bowls

GALLERY: http://oahusurfshots.smugmug.com/Other/Ala-Moana-Bowls-05-24-2010/172217...

Swam out at Bowls yesterday and took pictures between 4:30 and 6:30pm. It was pretty sick. Solid 3 feet on the sets with a little bit more on the biggest ones. Winds were stiff offshore and opening them up. There was the odd set hitting the big bowl. A few of the groms were making the dash over there on the bigger sets and sneaking into a few shacks.

Chuns

GALLERY: http://photos.oahusurfshots.com/Other/Chuns-05-20-2011/17155956_cHBGcS#1...

Shot up to the country Yesterday afternoon. I heard the water the water was dirty brown up near Rockies and Pipe so I jumped in at Chuns to snap a few photos. The waves were 3 feet and super fun. The inside section was offering up some hollow little wedges and the groms were all over it. After taking pictures I paddled out right before dark and scored a few fun ones on the inside.

A Few Fun Ones at Bowls

GALLERY: http://oahusurfshots.smugmug.com/Other/Ala-Moana-Bowls-05-14-2011/170570...

It's been ages since I got camera in the water. It's either been rainy and cloudy or the wind's been onshore. The trade winds and sun finally returned so I swam out for a quick shoot at Bowls. The waves weren't epic, but there were some fun shoulder high ones rolling through.

Looks like a better swell slated for Tuesday / Wednesday and then an even bigger one in a week.

Winter's Last Gasps: Rocky Point w/ Gallery

GALLERY: http://oahusurfshots.smugmug.com/Other/Rocky-Point-04-25-2011/16773960_m...

The last gasps of winter swells are often better than 90 percent of summer swells. so you gotta grab those spring country sessions when you can. Rockies was 2 to 3 feet, light offshore, and plenty rippable. I shot in the water from around 7:30 to 9:30am. I heard the the wind switched onshore and blew it out in the afternoon.

Threes Please - w/ Gallery

GALLERY: http://photos.oahusurfshots.com/Other/Threes-Preview-04-20-2011/16702825...

I didn't want to risk the afternoon onshore wind so I headed South early. Shot Threes for a couple of hours between 7:30am and 10:00am. The morning sun let me shoot a right hander (for a change). The waves were mostly 2 to 3 feet, but there was the VERY occasional bigger one coming through. Winds were glassy early, going light offshore later, and then side shore just after I left. Here's a few photos to check out while the full gallery uploads.

Fun Forerunners at Bowls - w/ Gallery

Gallery: http://photos.oahusurfshots.com/Other/Bowls-Preview-04-19-2011/16692643_...

I swam out and took photos at Bowls between 4:30pm and 6:30pm. The new swell was kicking in nicely with sets pushing a couple feet over head and even a few bigger ones. Tide was super high but it still had killer shape - a few tubes and lots of SMASHable sections. Town should be firing on all cylinders tomorrow. But then again it's town, so don't call in sick till you've checked it in the morning. Click on the title to see a handful of good shots.

Little Lanis

GALLERY: http://photos.oahusurfshots.com/Other/Lanis-04-12-2011/16599192_zbdUW#12...

Yesterday had a lot of fun waves in the country. I had a killer surf at Rockies early. The current was too strong to swim with the housing at Rockies (and there was hardly anyone out!). So when I came in I cruised down to Lanis and took a few pictures there. There were some fun 3 footers coming in. It was a little hard to be in the right spot for pictures as the waves were a little shifty. Here's a small gallery of what I got.

Get out the vote!

I submitted 3 pictures to the surfline gallery last month and they picked 2 of them for their monthly competition. If I win I get an entire year subscription to Surfline *GASP*. Right now I'm getting hosed by a couple of other shots. So if you feel like voting, vote for me: http://www.surfline.com/surf-news/surfline-photo-challenge-march-10_53982/

And if you couldn't be bothered, just blow it off.

Somewhere on Oahu

Surfed somewhere this morning. And it was good. And it was uncrowded. 3 to 5 feet, light wind and a pumping swell. I gave my buddy a crash course on working the camera/housing and he snapped a few shots. That's me posing for the camera above. You gotta get some shots of yourself if you got a fancy camera and housing right? Click through for a few more shots of me and the couple others that were out.

Yesterday's Bowls Gallery

GALLERY: http://oahusurfshots.smugmug.com/Other/Ala-Moana-Bowls-04-05-2011/164995...

Here's the bowls gallery from yesterday afternoon.

I took pictures 4 out of the last 5 days and haven't been around the house much. When my two year old daughter woke up from her nap yesterday she asked "Where's my Dada?... I want him to get me some waves." I might have to sit it out today and honor the keiki's request. Unless of course it's looking really good then maybe I can squeeze a quick photo sesh in.
