Just got back from an amazing surf photography trip from the Telo Islands,
quite remote location in Sumatra/ Indonesia.
It took me 4 plane rides, several car and bus rides, plus 2 boat trips including an overnight boat journey on an old Indonesian fishing trawler to get to the island. Same way back, left last Monday and made it back into Byron Bay yesterday on Friday.
But it was worth the travel. Check out the photos and I think you will know what I mean.
Thanks to my great friend Craig Shales to get me on this adventure
and also thanks to Craig’s good friends: David, Peter, Simon and Grant for this awesome surf safari trip!
Here a few shots I took while I was riding around my new bike with my backpack and my camera in it. All of the sudden the moon popped-up in a perfect position. Didn’t have my best camera gear with me (hard on a bike!), but still, got some nice shots. Enjoy!!! ; ))
Just guess who took the Cover Shot Photo of Keahi de Aboitiz?
Yep, you are right!!! ; ))
I m proud of being part of this great book with my photography.
Over the past fifteen years, the extreme sport of kiteboarding has developed from an unlikely concept into a worldwide phenomenon. Kiteboarding: Where it s at… tracks these changes and looks at the various tangents that the sport has taken.
With stunning photography, each part reviews one of the four main disciplines within the sport: Freestyle, Waveriding, Wakestyle and Course Racing. Within each part is a background to the discipline, the kit, profiles of prime locations, key events and some of the riders and brands who have come to define the sport.
With over 200 shots from the best photographers in the game, and comprehensive access to all of the main players within the sport, author Alex Hapgood has ensured that Kiteboarding: Where it s at… is the most comprehensive and visually stunning representation of the sport to date.
‘An excellent overview of our sport with great imagery. Essential reading.
‘A beautiful and comprehensive look at kiting. Drawn from a broad collection of the sport s best shooters, this book is full of great images of a strikingly visual and technically challenging sport.’
‘Kiteboarding: Where it s at… is a great representation of our sport. It s awesome to have a book like this that shows the roots of the sport and what it has become today. Stunning photography and a real achievement.’

Thanks to my skydiving friend Gulliver Page I had the opportunity to be part of the film crew in this crazy concept ; ))
The Concept … to span 300ft of rope between two hot air balloons in the sky and perform a pendulum swing was hatched over coffee one morning after a balloon jump as we dreamed of the potentials …. over a year later after detailed planning and research amid setbacks for weather and schedule changes The Adventure Planet team have achieved their goal
“Balloon Pendulum Sky-Swing” was a success.
Thomas and Chris used their years of experience flying together to position the two balloons as one with extraordinary precision
With both balloons set in position and the rope spanned between them Gulliver was free to go and play on the big swing …. YEEEWWwwwwwwwwwww !!!!
