Great gig

After many very dark, very icey lanes, deep in south devon we stumbled across the folksy melodies of Ben Howard. He was putting on an great little gig for friends and family at his very talented cellists home. Accompanying him were the equally great trio of Park Bench Poet...great music, great atmosphere
*sorry about all the greats think i need a thesaurus

on occasions

Its gets easy to stop checking a spot, habits and memories fade, then all of a sudden 'WHAM' one cold pre work surf and its back in your head. You hunt the charts looking for the right tide/wind/swell combo, daydream about it at work envisioning yourself upping the ante, end up checking it on days that you realistically know it wont break on, and sticking it on top of your christmas wish list...

Pitpilot Issue 32

Some photos and my first attempt of a rock band write up that made it to print... This is Gregs Martins last issue as editor, best wishes for his next endeavour's

Threesixty Issue 80

Recieved Threesixty in the post, glad to see i got a few images and a bit of text in there... After pretty shocking autumn as far a bodyboarding waves go, i did'nt have much content to send in.
Still it seems an amusing mission with Ollie Medland out into the wilds turned out, just about worth while...

Around the next corner...

No one likes crowds, apart from perhaps if you own the beach car park...
Apparently this day totalled 150 people at Bantham and Challaborough, making it kinda funny i couldn't find anyone to take a picture of ? South Devon leftovers...

Pretty excited to have been given a little bio article in Drift Magazine. Thanks to Diggy and Angela for the hook up...

ollie-openerThe beauty of Drift is that everyone knows someone who knows someone who does something cool. I love it when I get one of those “You should check out…” emails, because it invariably leads to a few moments of eye-candy-fed escapism, and I feel it’s my duty to pass on the goodness.

Most recently, thanks to the superbly monikered illustrator/designer Diggy Smerdon, I’ve been introduced to the work of Ollie Howe. I’ll let Ollie do the talking…

Ben Howard

I met up with musician/surfer Ben Howard for the first time last week to try and get some shots needed for an article on him. Despite the forecast 8ft 12 sec wave period we were greeted by 3ft of slop, not ideal but better than nothing. Ben's a rad guy and made the most of the few waves we managed to find.
He dropped me a copy of his EP These Waters which i thinks pretty darn good. My music taste isn't much to go by, but having secured a sponsorship with Quiksilver and the title track on Kelly Slater's new movie Cloud Nine he must have something good going on...
