Tahiti is always a hard 'yes'. Never, ever say no to Tahiti.
Being back in beautiful French Polynesia was special. The smells, the food, the creatures, the memories. They all come flooding back in the second you touch down.

Here are some special moments captured on 35mm. Hope you enjoy. X

Meeting Amanda

Every once in a while ... when schedules permit ... and stars align, I get to meet a new human via "Test Shoot." I think I've said this before, but it's been through photography that I've met some of the most amazing and talented people. That's enough to keep me coming back for more . . .

Amanda was visiting Maui a couple of months ago and decided to pop over to O'ahu for a day so that we could capture some goodness. That made me so happy. She is sweet with piercing beauty, soft spoken but fierce nonetheless. We had horrible weather all day on the North Shore but decided that we would brave the storm and make the best of our circumstances --- from what we gathered, you couldn't tell we were hiding from rain squalls under the rainforest and our photographic adventure was topped off by a spontaneous ahi katsu run so that didn't suck. :)

Enjoy these snaps of @amandaperlita_

Congrats, Squirt!

 Seems like just yesterday we were calling ourselves Bacon + Eggs in the lineup, now you're off winning WORLD TITLES n sh*t .... we're so proud of you for bringing the title home to Hawai'i!  Honolua Blomfield, everyone, get her on your radar if you love surf + style + grace . . .

Sunnier Days

Sometimes sunny days are hard to come by during Hawaiian winters, but when the sun decides to show its face, best believe we are making the most of those moments!
Halloween 2017 stands out in my mind for a day full of fun surf with all the crew ending up in the water serendipitously . . . the sunrise was out of this world, and the sunset put on a show for us too . . . it'll definitely go down in my memory bank as a day I'll never forget.
And although I got to enjoy a surf in the evening with my friends, I'm so happy I took out the housing for the sandbar session earlier that afternoon. Here are some snaps of happy campers enjoying the calm before the storm :)
