Seriouslyl mate awesome stuff, makes my mind bleed how much I have changed and stopped chasin the drreams once fmaily mortgae and kids rocked up. I remember what yellin out "stoked, effin unreal" on the back edge of a massive set meant, I remember what going over the falls at boomers in a big swell was and how much fun ot was in the wash, I remember prayin out loud to huey tio bring it on, I remeber losing all feeling in my santagets when the board went where it shouldn't LOL LOL LOL,

sorry lads and ladies, drunk waaay to much tonioght of my neighnbours red (damn hard having a neighbour with a winery) and am in full blown reminisce mode. Ya all know how it is. Ya all know though how the ocean gets inta ya, how it runs through ya veins and no matter how far from it you may be the call, the smell, the sound is like coming home. smile Awesome from an old fella. smile

Ohh Tim don't worry about how much you have changed, I'm lookin at 2 kids now and really really trying to get out into the water as half as often as I used to, I'm ignoring the fact that I'm apparently in the 'transition stage' from being active, surfin every day to just family life, im only 28 and over the next 3 months am going to show transition the door, I just need someone to hit the water with, im always rocking up to nice kegs and there's not a soul to be seen, and there's no way I'm surfin around here by myself, I mean, I would like to know there is a human out in the water with me to share the ocean with all the Noah's laugh

nice shot melfunktion, I had a mate who lived in Cairns for a couple years, he said once in a blue moon there was 'rideable waves' during strong winds, I think he was joking about the quality though laugh
nice shots everyone, good to see some quality out there.
I went for a drive on thursday with the family and camera for the day, 4X4 only laugh

Lovely shots Aaron, especially the last, but you may want to consider a) a sensor clean to remove those darned dust bunnies and b) a ruler to straighten those horizons... nearly fell of me chair. Just joking of course. laugh Really must do another trip to the west coast and it's photos like these that give me the travel bug. It's been far too long since I've been there... something like 30-odd years (sad, I know).

Cheers Helen, I am quite a fan of that shot as well, will be a good addition for my new place in Sydney! And I need a sensor clean as well, you can really see the dust bunnies when the apeture is smaller, but will clean them one day :p

And great waves aztech cool !

Some lovely photos there Craig. Would love to go out get stuck into it however i sold my esky lid a long time ago and quite frankly i don't have the energy;) Tim, i generally only have 2 glasses of red these days, the inflicted hangover just isn't worth going any further;)

Not sure if this fits, but since we are on the beachy thingy whatsa ya call it, i thought i might add a few from my recent collection.


I love the beach, it has so many interesting moods and can change so quickly that any moment can never be repeated. A bit like storms really.

Holy smoke, Sydney. At least I'll have someone else to visit when I'm over next. wink

Next AGM is to be held in Melbourne. Waiting with baited breath for our Vic brethren to set a solid date in August. laugh

Greg, those shots are rippers, mate. Wish I had the time, inclination and scenery to get out there and shoot. Other things on my plate right now, but hopefully by the end of summer things will be back to normal and I can get some inspiration again. smile

Thanks Helen;) I'm sure when time permits you'll get your teeth stuck into the great country side that you find yourself in.

Craig, so it's Sydney mate!? Well, not a bad place for weather related events, i hope you get a few. You'll do the SA crew proud i have no doubt.

I'm pretty sure the Vic commitee is leaning towards the 22nd of August, but don;t quote me on that. My sister is getting married on the 15th up in Cairns so hopefully i wont miss out, considering i may be apart of one of the presentations.....here's for touching wood! I'm working on the initial visual concepts for the invite/poster, which i'm hoping will be totally different to Adelaides, so not too much longer and all the details will be made public.

Here's a shot of a beachie in Taiwan of all places I took last monday. Doing a bit of travelling here with my girlfriend, this beach stretches a long way with various reefs and a couple of breakwall wedges along the way. It's in the coastal town of Yilan, about 30-45mins drive from Taipei. It's a reasonably consistent place, Typhoons keep it busy in summer and winter has plenty of swell.

Might not be the best shot but I figured it warranted posting here for location only. It was about 3-4ft, maybe a little bigger on the sets. Needless to say I hired board and wettie and got my fill.

Edit: Please keep images to 800 pixels on the longest side per the guidelines, thanks.

ha ha Lennie, thanks for your comments dude. I still have a mountain of images to get through, so i'll put up a few in the coming week or so.

I think you'll have to cross the border and get into the kimberley mate and get some corkers yaself.

Since there's been a real lack of weather to shoot i might as well do seascapes/ landscapes.....
