Carve Issue 122

Everything looks pretty average, compared to this insane front cover by Ray Collins and Eddie Blackwell. But happy to have a shot of MGT boosting locally printed and also getting featured in Carve's new running article 'Shutterbug', pretty stoked on both

the other Pipeline Pro

In the last few years, surfing (short boarding) contests have taken off, with great sponsorship, great quality live streaming, prize money, locations, fantasy surfer etc... fans have finally got what they've envied their football/rugby/golf/tennis brethren for having all these years

Bodyboarding on the other hand seemed to get left behind. The sport seemed to get layed off by big industry sponsors, and has taken a back seat. But the sport itself has never slowed down, more just quietened down. But this year with Red Bull's support, the tour's kicked off in great form, streamed live, with out the past lack of quality and commentary, it made for great viewing

being into surfing and surf photography, can make you question a lot of your motives. You surf for fun, you take pictures for fun. That's a no brainer easy to work out. But it gets confusing when you go to secret spots. You want to keep them quiet so you can enjoy surfing them with just your friends and the spots locals. Yet you want to take pictures of the waves, people to see/enjoy them, yet not give the spot location away. There lye's the problem...
this gets me round it for the time being

happy hunting

The village elder, from 'Morning of the Earth' to the last Rip Curl event he must have seen it all come and go

is there anywhere better to standing?

Family life...

Benny a local Padang resident. All night you can hear him getting rowdy, fighting, drinking... whatever he does? he does it loudly. The following day he'll be on the beach looking faded and sleeping it off

Archive. Sainte Foy 2007

Found a disc of the first load of shots i took with an SLR, its seen better days and is so scratched i could only get some of the shots off. They're from my first season working out in France, 2007 i thinkI didn't have the internet/iphone to look at the webcams and weather forecast when i woke up, but this local stray would come in, in the mornings let you know there was fresh snow

Funniest day of the season 'One Piece day'. 80's one-piece ski suits, snow blades (the gayest things since roller blades) and a demi Mutzig after each run. Golden!

Mike Pedder, a very cool guy from N.Z. He was living out in the resort when i turned up. That season he wanted to focus more on skiing than snowboarding. I was new to the mountains and was more amped to snowboard than ever, so pestered him to ride with me everyday which he did a lot, he rips and pretty much taught me to snowboard.
Mike, humble as can be, always ripping and always having fun

This was a beautiful bridge on the way to Geneva airport, i rushed passed it and back a coupla times a week. Glad one day i bothered stopping to take a picture

a view from the bar i worked at ( over looking the tiny village where i lived, the road shoots everyone straight past and up to the mega resorts of Val d'isere and Tignes, blink and you'd miss it, thankfully most people do

This ramp is in a snowboard shop in Bourg Saint Maurice, the owner Romain is standing in the background. He happily opens it to locals some evenings and seemed unfazed when boards flew off into the racks of garments

St.Foy is off the radar to most people with only four lifts but some of the best off piste in the Alps you'll never queue for lifts or find it tracked out, the polar opposite to its big brothers 20 minutes up the road
