"Taken right as Tiki ran me over!! I'm pretty sure she's still too young to drive. She just took off laughing so people on Oahu watch out for a little girl driving on the road!! Haha. @3inparadise @alikawillis "

So here it is. I figured I should do this so people can see what is up with my life.
I'm a surf photographer here in Hawaii and also the owner of Novus Swell.
When I started shooting surfing, i realized i was floting around right next to other photogs trying to capture all the pros. So I figured why not shoot all the groms who are not getting enough exposures in the industry. So now i mostly shoot Hawaii's grom surfers.
After a while, i realized there are not much market for shots of groms... Specially Hawaii kids since all the big surf companies are in California.
So instead of convincing big surf companies that they should be using Hawaii kids for their ads and promotions (which would've been a full time job on it's own), i started Novus Swell.
Novus Swell features Hawaii's grom surfers. We come up with a new video webisode every Tuesday showcasing Hawaii's groms.
