Kelly Slater surfing Backdoor after he’d won his 7th World Professional Surfing Champion title. Kelly had secured the title in Europe earlier in the year and was wearing a special pair of ‘star trunks’ that Quiksilver had made for him. The run of classic swell this week in Hawaii and the way kelly was a standout reminded me of this wave which was shot during a similar run of West swells on the North Shore during the Winter of 2005/6. @kellyslater #backdoor #hawaii #northshore #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #kellyslater #joliphotos #366days #day037 #flashback by joliphotos from Banzai Pipeline, Oahu on February 05, 2016 at 09:34PM

Ricardo was an amazing tube rider taking out the AI award during the Billabong Pro in Tahiti and winning Surfline’s Wave of the Winter for a pristine Pipe barrel. I could have posted photos of him in the barrel but but seeing his smiley face and catching up whenever our paths crossed is what I am going to miss the most. R.I.P. my friend.

Kelly Slater checking heats during the running of the Rip Curl Pro Search in Puerto Rico. By the end of the day he’d claimed his 10th World Title and it was mayhem on the beach! What’s in store for this year? Will it be number 12? @Kellyslater @franckgazzola Day 1 of the B&W Challenge. #ripcurl #kellyslater #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #blackandwhite #surf #travel #gitzo #joliphotos #puertorico #surfing (at Porta Del Sol Puerto Rico)

This was shot last winter on a pretty solid day at Pipe during the #billabongpipemasters With just over a week to go before this year’s event kicks off I wonder if we’re going to see something like this. Got my fingers crossed and my cameras ready. 📷✌️#pipeline #hawaii #northshore #vtcs #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire @nikonaustralia #joliphotos (at Pipeline, North Shore Oahu, Hawaii)

This is the turn that has been described as the ‘turn of the contest’ at the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro. John John pulled this roundhouse hack during the final scoring over a 9 for the ride. #drugawarepro #margaretriver #ThisIsWA #makeitwest #margiespro #johnjohnflorence #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #gitzo @john_john_florence #joliphotos (at Drug Aware Margaret River Pro)

A couple of days ago a comment on one of my images included the line “…it never gets old” and I figure it could easily apply to this patent bottom turn from a surfer that seems ageless … Tom Curren. This was shot at Backdoor just a few days ago and is easily a timeless image of @curfuffle putting it on rail. #tomcurren #backdoor #hawaii #northshore #trackshawaii #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #gitzo #surf #surfing (at Backdoor Hawaii)

What do you say about witnessing two perfect 20 point heats in two days. Both pulled off in waves of consequence by @owenwright who surfed an amazing #fijipro An historical feat in the history of pro
surfing. Very special to shoot from a #frontrow seat. #memorymillionaire #mynikonlife #namotuguest #namotu #fiji #ripcurl #joliphotos (at Namotu Island Resort ,Fiji)

Another spectacular end to our day with a little rain squall followed up with an amazing cloud formation and topped off with a rainbow. The swells hanging in there with two sessions at Sultans today. #kudahuraa #surfing #joliphotos #mynikonlife #maldives #memorymillionaire #clouds #fourseasonsmaldives #tropicsurf @fsmaldives @fourseasons @tropicsurf #kudahuraa (at Four Seasons Maldives at Kuda Huraa)

Filipe is known for his above the lip moves and during his Round 2 heat in the #quikpro he put on a masterclass. His first move off the bat on virtually every wave was above the lip. While other guys struggled in the very ordinary conditions @filipetoledo flew. #quikypro #quiksilver #snapperrocks #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #hurley #gitzo (at Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast)

A true Pipeline lineup showing how the NW swell hits 3rd Reef before refracting across 2nd Reef and then focusing and breaking across the Pipe Reef. You can’t see this happening from the beach or the yards of the houses lining the beach at Pipe but this year the Triple Crown built a 3 storey judging tower right on the sand and this is the view you get from the top floor. #thankyou #vtcs #pipeline #northshore #hawaii #trackshawaii #joliphptos #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #gitzo #lineup (at Pipeline Hawaii)

This was shot a couple of days ago. @john_john_florence driving off the top into the Greenmount section of the Superbank. I love the body torque involved with almost a throwback to Terry Fitzgerald - The Sultan of Speed. #speed #johnjohnflorence #hurley #pyzelsurfboards #mynikonlife #memorymillionaire #gitzo #joliphotos #snapperrocks (at Snapper Rocks)

Taj dropping through the roof at #cloudbreak on his way to a Round One win in the #fijipro. A floater is not a move you’d associate with Cloudbreak but we saw a lot out there today over sections and in places where they’d normal not even be attempted. @tajamos @namotu #mynikonlife #fiji #billabong #surfing #memorymillionaire #namotuguest (at Namotu Island Resort ,Fiji)
