Last week produced some of the best NE swell that I've witnessed hit these shorelines... Offshore all day and pumping waves up to 6ft + I was one of many who were lucky enough to get wet for a few hours these days (14 hrs to be exact) Epic swell!
Clean, Crisp & Clear... Lets keep it that way!
In July 2011, Tim Silverwood will embark on a voyage sailing across the Pacific Ocean from Honolulu to Vancouver to undertake important research into plastics in the North Pacific Gyre (Great Pacific Garbage Patch [GPGP]).
What is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? glad you asked...
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch has been compared to a 'floating island of trash', it is spread over an area twice the size of France in the North Pacific Ocean. Four oceanic currents converge here, causing floating plastic debris from Asia, North America and the South Pacific to accumulate in a swirling vortex that's rumoured to be doubling in size every ten years.
Tim will create a documentary on the experience which will contribute invaluably to raising global awareness of this issue.

My love for the ocean and all things aquatic has led me to many bodysurfing sessions. There is nothing better than sticking you head in tubes and gutsliding across the face of an open wave.
if you haven't tried it.... you sure will after watching this!
Still sorting out all my photo's from Hawaii... Yep all 1500 of them. These are not necessarily the best ones but just a little insight of what's to come. 1st one is your classic Hawaiian sunset and the 2nd is a mini Keiki barrel on an overcast day... wait to you see the sunny ones!
The last 11 days of my life I've been lucky enough to have enjoyed the awesome waves and lifestyle of HAWAII. This place is too good... from skydiving to surfing all the infamous breaks... this place has so much to offer. As i look back it all seems like a RAD dream but as i sift through thousands of photos i know it was reality alright... Reality that I'm going to try and visit every year!
More photos to come
