Balian – West Coast Bali Magic

Balian is a village situated on the west coast of Bali around 2 hours drive north of Denpasar. It reminds me of the old Bali, before the thousands of tourists and developments around Kuta and the surrounding areas. I stayed at the Pondok Pitaya Surfer Hotel right on the beach at Balian and had a […]

2011 Boost Mobile Surf Sho Photo Shoot

I headed to Bondi Beach in Sydney recently to shoot at the 2011 Boost Mobile Surf Sho. The surfing event featured some of the worlds best surfers & the format of the competition was solely focused on aerial surfing. More than 30,000 spectators lined the beach to see the pros in action. Weather was great, […]

Surf Search & Photos – The Wairarapa, New Zealand

A lot of the time, good waves around Wellington in New Zealand are hard to come by. But if you are prepared to hit the road & do a little searching, you can certainly score some great waves. I began watching the swell forecast earlier in the week, & things were looking promising with a […]


Gold Coast Australia – Surf & Beach Lifestyle Photos

The Gold Coast Australia is renown for its great surf & beaches, fantastic climate & a great lifestyle. It’s also where I lived for a big chunk of my life before relocating to Wellington, New Zealand. So I am fortunate enough to have lived that lifestyle by the beach, & being able to surf almost […]

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 […]

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 […]

Innersection.tv – filmmaking & freesurfing platform

INNERSECTION winter round from INNERSECTION on Vimeo. Continuing on with the friends of markg.com.au, I came across this website the other day called Innersection. It is a platform for creating 2-3 minute long surf movie sections that will potentially be part of a final surf movie. It’s also a contest that runs for a year, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
