Jamie Drops In - I didn't realise until after I'd taken this photo, that it was Jamie from @saltroad in the foreground. Up until recently, I used to surf with him and a handful of others in the pitch black most mornings out at Currumbin, all of us bobbing in the ocean huddled around him and his Shark Shield! Anyway Jamie's love of the waves has shifted focus - from surfing them, to photographing them - and he's doing quite a fine job of it, so check out his gallery

Just received an email to unexpectedly find out I'm a finalist for Coastal Watch's Winter Waves competition. The final 8 is now left up to the publics vote and I'm up against solid competition so if anyone has a spare minute every vote would be very much appreciated! My photo I entered is number 6 of 8 which I named 'Take your pick'. I shot this photo in July 2015 😎 http://www.coastalwatch.com/surfing/14722/winter-waves-photo-competition-finalists-announced
