Dispatches From A Plastic Planet is a 196 page coffee table book, it is a follow up to my first book Numb, it is about surf adventure through Iceland, Norway, England, Scotland, Ireland and France, but it has an environmental twist, highlighting the issues these areas face, and accompanies the film by the same name. If you love surf and adventure you’ll love it, if you want to help the environment you’ll love it too.

UPDATE – We’re going to take film and exhibition on tour and to do that we are going to fund it with book sales, we need to sell 200 in total (any more goes to 2 minute Beach clean). You get a book, a print and entry to one of the film/exhibition evenings, which are free anyway, but a couple are full already and we haven’t even announced the date yet! You can grab a book here –

Dispatches From A Plastic Planet Hardback Book – Price includes postage, two tickets to film showing and a print


The will be dispatched at the end of the month. Check out a brief interview I did here –  Now please read on…


Numb was a work of passion, a book that told a real story of looking for adventure in the coldest parts of the planet. It pre-dated the false marketing campaigns that sold cold water surfing as something new, or different, when we all know it is just surfing.

Dispatches From A Plastic Planet is the second instalment. I couldn’t call it Numb 2, it’s more than an adventure now, it’s an adventure with purpose, and whilst the stories grow, the message has had to change slightly. I for one can’t keep shooting all of these incredible places without adding something about the environment.

It covers the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway, heaving slabs in ireland, an archive of England which is incredible in its self, pumping France, some absolute perfection in Scotland and off the map adventure in Iceland. The imagery is incredible, the tales ridiculous and the environmental message essential.

We have 250 to sell ( 152 now), selling 200 that will pay for us to take the the film on tour in the UK, Ireland and Europe, as well as that we will also be able to buy the 2 Minute Beach Clean 2 boards for beaches, if we get all 250 sold.

You can get them in three ways, buy it direct from this page, from my photography page HERE or grab one when we bring the film on tour (although they are limited).

If you have already ordered one as part of earlier support, your copy is already on the way.

Any questions drop me a line, technically speaking the book it 192 pages of full colour surf photography and stories, measuring in at a pleasing 25x20cm with hard cover and dust jacket.




We are going to try and sell 250 books, and that will allow us to take the exhibition and film on tour around the UK and most of Europe where we have confirmation.
