Oktober Projeckt: Surf

One photo every day in Oktober; scroll down for latest image.  Click to engorge. I haven’t taken many photos lately. Much to my shame: Work and other commitments have got in the way of ‘my essential contentment of futile wanderings’ with the camera. So, to try to re-ignite the flame ( & justify the purchase […]

Lynmouth in Black & White

February 5, 2014

1

Big swell today with gusting, blustery strong winds tearing into it, and rain. This double overhead set went through Blacklands today totally unmolested by any surfers. In the old days of transparency film and in the light of the mantra “tight and bright” from editors, we didnt used to shoot (and waste film) on overcast […]

It’s been a long time since the British Surfing Champion came from North Devon, since 1984 in fact when Richard Carter (Redwood surf shop, Croyde) held the crown.

Congratulations to Russell Winter who won three titles yesterday in one epic day of surfing at a thumping Fistral Beach, which was a strength-sapping and grinding 4 – 8 feet and classic conditions for the season deciding final event on the UK Pro Surf Tour. Russ won the final Relentless Energy Drink Super Series contest […]

Into the Winter

The evenings are getting darker and darker, literally and not as a consequence of all the ridiculous moustaches starting to sprout everywhere!
