This is the unmistakeable webbed claws of Ken Finn.

sunday arvo offshores

Yesterday the mid north coast had a straight westerly wind blowing all day long. We rarely get days in spring where the winds remains offshore through to the evening and it left many surfers with sore shoulders by the end of the day.

after the dust had settled

got up early this morning hoping for some of the weird light from yesterday's dust storm, but it had all cleared leaving a normal clear spring morning. The dawn light naturally produced the warm yellow hues and the waves were'nt too bad. I took a few snaps and the enjoyed some clean 2-footers.

night surfer

I have been teaming up with Duncan Macfarlane, a young photog from Sawtell lately. He has got himself some "pocket wizards" which allow us to fire a flash remotely from around 100 meters from the camera. In this shot I was lining up the flash from the water providing the LIGHTS while Shaun Cansdell provided the SHOW and Duncan got the BIZ done from the rocks with his long lens. It's great fun and we are starting to get some cool results. This is one of the B-grade images. The money shot is going to be published in the next edition of surfing world magazine, which is due out tomorrow.

Flat as today...... our nice little easterly swells from the last week or two have faded to lake like conditions this morning.

the perils of being a pro surfer

I did a quick photo shoot with the current world number 1 longboarder; Harley Ingleby this morning. His boardshort sponsor needed a few shots of him riding one of their new lines. Poor ole Harls had to paddle out at 7am in the coldest water we have had all year..... the waves weren't great either, but I think I got a pretty one of him walking up the beach.
