Sika Silhouettes

Picture this: An early afternoon in the pub: sheltering from the wrath of the Atlantic, log fire, Lundy Gold and laughter, then, during a lull – the reluctant decision to hike home. A two mile trek acroos the moor against a lively north-westerly, so strong it rips the snot and phlegm across your frozen cheek. […]

Another weekend and another apocalyptic storm, as I write the Sevenstones Lightship has just tweeted from 18 miles off Lands End: “It’s Feb 8, 2014 @ 5pm ; Wind = W (270°) 45.1 knots; Swell = 30.5 ft @ 12 seconds….” Here’s a few pix from North Devon today of those 30 foot waves and […]

Planet. Future. Choice. Death.

The high tides and recent storm have washed alot of debris on to our beach, a staggering amount of it was small pieces of plastic. Today the local community rallied together to clean up the beach, which is such an important resource to everyone, in astonishing numbers. Who said there was no such thing as […]

Rhenish tower and storm waves

The bouys were going ballistic; pumping out all time numbers; 30 foot at 12 seconds. It was possibly the most anticipated swell of the social media age. The images and footage will keep us entertained through the dark days of January especially ‘depression monday’, ‘bankrupt tuesday’ and (my favourite) ‘alcoholic wednesday’. But anyway, this is […]

Happy New Year Slabhunters..

..lets hope it’s a peaceful one with plenty of swell. Here in North Devon the weather did nothing to help relieve the festive hangover, it was damp and windy and the fields are knee deep in mid-winter mud, not suitable for a gentle perambulation, but with a mahoosive swell running; it was ideal for slab […]

Holga portraits at Quik Pro Junior

I am really enjoying using the ‘hit and miss’ Holga lens at the mo. The exposures are all over the shop, and the focus is agricultural – to say the least but, the massive vignetting and softness force you into a different mindset to get a result. The technique I have developed so far is […]

Night Surf and Shite Hawks

Now that the dust has settled from the Nightsurf event and I’ve managed to get a couple of goods nights recovery sleep under my belt, I must admit to still feeling quite euphoric. Which is quite unusual for me. It’s contest like no other and without being too much of a corporate arse licker, I […]

Tubular Swells

That was a great film. I remember sitting in grom- like awe of the pictures flashing on a    makeshift screen in Braunton village hall with about 70 other surfers screaming and hooting at every barrel and big wave take-off. This was back in the seventies when surf news filtered through to the north Devon community […]

No public access beyond this point

  The internet community was wild with eager expectations, tomorrow was already being dubbed as Big Wednesday and it was was going to be epic. The long term prediction didn’t waiver and as if to confirm it – the swell had bumped that afternoon and was still building. That evening however, the weather forecast showed […]

Mid winter surf gold

  Plenty of swell around this weekend and pumping waves in north west Ireland by the looks of things. Lots of swell here in north Devon too and lots of miles clocked up by surfers and photographers alike; checking, searching and dodging the rain showers. With bad light and contrary tides I was thinking that […]
