Good memories, many moons ago, my first boat trip, for Jason Hearn’s movie “15 Below”, frothing groms. Dale and Dane Staples, ¬†James and Thomas Woods, Nick Godfrey, Brendon Gibbens, Mickey February and Matt Bromley – good friends -miss them – sadly I don’t ¬†see enough of them anymore…

One day on our recent boat trip, I decided to follow Greg Ewing around while he took lifestyle shots on a local island. The locals were really friendly and allowed us to shoot some portrait’s of them. Thanks again for an epic trip Sheriff!

Good times on a boat in the Maldives……during the filming of Jason Hearn’s movie “15Below”. Good crew, Woods brothers James and Thomas, Staples brothers Dane and Dale, Nick Godfrey, Brendon Gibbens, Mikey February, myself. Jason did the filming and Alan did the photos for Zigzag.


On my way to the Maldives for a boat trip with Sheriff and a few Saffas. We are going to the Southern Islands – apparently more and bigger surf than the north. I have been to the northern islands a few times before – for my 14th birthday we stayed on Lohifushi and scored good Coke’s for a day or two but surfed the left at Lohifushi mostly. This photo of Lohifushi was taken on the opposite side of the island, we stayed in a bungalow just behind the deck chairs on the beach……good memories….and I was rippen !!!
