I have a fascination for the golden minutes when the sun has rose from the ocean, the sky is clear and there's a bit of swell. Not good for our eyes and difficult to recognise the ones you want to shoot but the moment stay in your mind for a long time.

World Champion @markmonostewart2481 shredding up snapper during the latest swell. In a few days we should see some more swell on the east coast and south/ south west winds making some good waves. If you ever see mono surfing just sit back and watch at how he performs. He is a very talented surfer who is pushing the limits.

Caravanning can make you soft. It's amazing how much stuff you still drag along with you. Always clean up after yourself and leave nothing behind. Dosnt matter how hungover you are. It's a real shame going to many camp spots that are riddled with broken glass and ribbons of toilet paper.
