@kimi_swimmy cruising. Click play on my website to link of our film on Great Barrier Reef.


I hiked this trail at Zion National Park about seven years ago. When we reached the top there were four of us and we were mesmerized by its beauty. Today it has evolved. As @robtaylor.tv and I ran to the top and back we passed an endless line of people, seemingly waiting for a sports game, single-file, up and down. An evolution of well executed marketing? So many times I grumble at the amount of tourism traffic in these beautiful spots I go/live - but who am I to feel entitled to exclusively in any of those places? It was really cool to see the ambition and determination of people getting outdoors and enjoying Mother Nature. Hopefully it will help not just keep public lands available, but increase them.


@otford_magpie riding one of the smaller waves I’ve seen him on. So much gratitude for the friend he has become and the energy he has given to teach me how to surf.


@kimi_swimmy dropping to artificial reef


Bali is one of my favorites. Here is a sequence of @kimi_swimmy catching dinner. Who better to finish this sequence and hold the fish than our friend @ripzinger ! Kimi is having another retreat at @uluwatusurfvillas this coming fall and I’m so stoked! 🙏 @drifterbali @uluwatusurfvillas @tim_ulu @seewahc @jakedrifter


Making a fishing film is fun, especially when you have a great crew. From getting ’iced’, helping remove sea lice, sun-up to sun-down missions it was a blast making this one (link in bio). Here are some photos from the trip even though I shot video most of the time! Thanks again @camp4collective


@camp4collective invited me to help make a fishing film then dragged me along in the water for a week with the @badfish guys in Belize. Our target species was tarpon on a fly. This shot was my favorite as it was my first experience seeing tarpon underwater. Check the link in bio to watch the short vid and see if the boys caught! @timkemple thank you! @willsaundersphoto @halfmanhalfparty @dylanschmitz @scubastevie @wesleylocke


@timothy3mcdonald visiting from Australia so the A team took us out for a quick one. We got out there discouraged as the water was brown and dirty. So we sent the ambitious Aussie in to be our team guinea pig and he said “it’s crystal clear 2 ft down”. He was right and the conditions and experience was really awesome.


One of my favorite clips from a quick underwater dip with the donkey show @healeywaterops full video link in bio. Such a hammer on land and in the water. His big wave surf shots in the edit are crazy.


Happy Valentine’s Day to this beautiful woman who makes me smile and feel so loved. @kimi_swimmy thank you


I almost feel guilty when I’m swimming under the waves and watching people get thrashed. Mother Nature has so many powerful ways of showing her beauty.


Kimi and I jumped in our truck on Friday with dive/surf gear and missioned through to Sunday. Here is one shot from the weekend pushing my lungs for dinner Photo by @kimi_swimmy - thank you all for a great weekend!
