A work in progress – Strapless Kitesurfing Video

Strapless kitesurfing in Wellington, New Zealand from Mark Gee on Vimeo. Every now & then I have the chance to get in front of the camera instead of the one standing behind it shooting the action. This time round I was being filmed by Simo from Stikman Films for a short kitesurfing video for my […]

Black & White Kiteboarding

A few months ago I was in the market for a new housing for my canon 7d. I did my research & settled on a CMT water housing from the US. They were fantastic, & kept me informed all the way through the building process of my housing. Finally it was finished & shipped arriving […]

2010 Wellington Regional Scholastics Surfing Champs

The Wellington Boardriders Club hosted the 2010 Wellington Regional Scholastics Surfing Champs on Saturday March 20th at Lyall Bay in Wellington. The juniors fought it out in clean head high waves with a strong offshore wind blowing making it difficult to paddle onto the waves. However the grommets revealed in the conditions & made the […]


Wellington waves – 15th March 2010

The beaches around Wellington city in New Zealand aren’t renowned for consistent surf, you need to head out to the Wairarapa coast for that. So when a 3-4m ground swell is forecast to race up the eastern coast of the south Island of New Zealand, then there is always hope & anticipation amongst the Wellington […]

Surfing footage test using the canon 7D

Canon 7D surfing footage test from Mark Gee on Vimeo. I recently shot some surfing footage at Lyall Bay in Wellington, New Zealand to test out the video capabilities of the canon 7D. I was shooting stills all day & I just switched it over to video mode & shot some video. All manual focus […]

Sneaky Lyall Bay Ground Swell – 4th January 2010

A sneaky ground swell off the south eastern coast of New Zealand pushed into Lyall Bay in Wellington for one day of pumping surf. It was a great start for waves in Wellington & hopefully this year will be much better than last. Unfortunately I got there a little late that day to get the […]


Lyall Bay Surf Life Saving Club Training Afternoon

It was a late afternoon, a light southerly breeze blowing & salt haze blanketed Lyall Bay. I headed onto the beach to see what I could capture – initially it was surfing – but the Lyall Bay Surf Life Saving Club was out in force on their training afternoon with swimmers, board paddlers, boaties & […]

Wellington Boardriders Double Pointscore Comp

It was the final comp of the year for the Wellington Boardriders, & the day was looking like it was going to provide some decent waves. The location was set for the corner at Lyall Bay & on arrival the waves were a little onshore & chunky. I thought about heading out into the water […]

Kitesurfing Lyall Style

Wellington, New Zealand is known worldwide as the windy city. This also makes it the perfect place for wind sports such as kitesurfing. I am a little biased with the subject of kitesurfing as this too is one of my passions. So that is probably why I don’t have a large collection of kitesurfing photos […]


Swell was there, but so was the wind

It had been a pretty consistent spring as far as waves were concerned in Wellington, so I’ve been able to get out there & get a few shots. The only problem is spring is the windiest time of year & you get these strong offshore winds blowing which makes it really hard to paddle onto […]

The Lyall Sessions – Kitesurfing Lyall Bay

The Lyall Sessions from Mark Gee on Vimeo. The Lyall Sessions was a bit of an experiment using the video mode of a consumer grade still camera set up on a rig attached to the kite-surfing kite. The result, while not broadcast quality, was quite nice considering what it was shot with. I spent a […]
