Live Music, lots of dirt bikes, and a bunch of crew that aren’t afraid of a little mud, rocks, and obstacles… Now that’s fun! Topping it off with a massive mash-up by a couple of awesome rock crawlers makes it even better. This one is running in its entirety on Local Maui TV – Akaku Channel 55.

Jaws Peahi Maui Hawaii Opening Day November 13 2013. Huge Paddle In Sessions set a new precedent in surfing history as Shane Dorian, Mark Healey, Ian Walsh, Ahanu Tson-dru, Marcio Freire, Greg Long and a few promising young guns like DK Walsh re-defined what is possible in big wave paddle in surfing. Ahanu Tson-dru’s XXL wipeout is at the end of the clip and I kept the camera rolling the entire time with natural sound. You can see him pop up in the video after what seems like an eternity and jump on a jet ski. His inflatable vest was still intact as was his will to succeed despite playing tag with the reef on one of the heaviest wipeouts of the year.
The Xterra Triathlon season culminates in the final leg of competition at Maui’s Ritz Carlton at Flemming’s beach in beautiful Kapalua. For this event I had the privilege of providing underwater footage as well as completing the highlight reel edit. Special thanks to all the competitors who lay it on the line to wow their fans and push their bodies to the limit.
Shooting timelapse of the sunrise at the top of Mt. Haleakala was pretty awesome. Being part of a new documentary featuring the trials and tribulations of big wave surfer Ahanu Tsondru is an honor beyond compare. Ahanu (seen in the video) suffered a traumatic brain injury on a huge wipeout at Jaws and experienced amnesia, loss of balance, and nausea for years before being properly diagnosed.
Jaws (Peahi) Maui was going off this time last year (2012) with one of the best paddle in days ever recorded at the fabled big wave spot on Maui’s North Shore. Stay tuned for more epic days of big wave adventures coming soon!
This video is about what green sea turtles eat while hanging out in Hawaii on Maui dodging sharks and kiteboarders from above and below. This video was shot on the Panasonic GH3 with 7-14mm Ultra- wide angle zoom lens in a Nauticam NA-GH3 under water housing with dome port. Enjoy..
The Drivers rocked the after hours promo shoot with about 20 top 40 songs belted out like they made them up. This is a super cool group of Maui musicians who play mainly cover songs at Weddings, Parties, Birthdays, Corporate Events, etc… I loved this shoot because I got to use some of my favorite lenses, a bunch of stage lights, and even brought out the jib arm.
Working with the Harley guys is so cool. They all ride and have amazing custom hogs for their personal bikes. Everyone was super laid back and we shot this video in a single day. Do you think we should have had them wear helmets? Click the story heading to comment.
This video is the first installment of the 2013 Wainman Hawaii kite lineup series. Each video features one type of kite, some aerial footage, a few words on the product, and an amazing Maui location. This particular video is on the Punch 10.5 and features riding and an interview with team rider Chris who is one of the coolest cats I’ve met. Enjoy!
This was a tough one for me because time was of the essence and traveling inter-island left no room for motion tools and big lights. I would have loved to bring my crane in on this one but the client was happy and job done. Koloa Landing is the place to stay when on Kauai and Wyndham Grand Resorts do it in style.
