When it comes to missing a feeling, or longing for a change, it’s hard to go past the ache we get for summer when it isn’t here. Whilst snow is exciting for a day or two, unless you are shredding in the mountains, it can quickly become a drag. It wrecks your new kicks, it turns brown and slushy and, well, it’s so bloody cold. Summer though, we can never get enough of summer.

How can you tire of the sunshine and the festivals and the beach and roadtrips with your  friends? When you are messing about with mates all hot, sandy and happy in a car singing along to this summer’s tunes, life doesn’t get any better.

That’s why Billabong is celebrating summer and why we need your help in capturing those special summer moments. If you love photography then we've got just the competition for you. By simply capturing the bright, bold colours of the summer you can have the chance to be flown out on an all expenses paid trip  to Hawaii, staying in a deluxe accommodation a stone’s throw from the famous white sands and rolling waves of Waikiki beach. Additionally, conditions permitting,  there will be the chance to watch and photograph the world’s best surfers tackle the infamous Pipeline wave during the Billabong Pipe Masters event. In between witnessing surfing's most beautiful and deadliest wave, the prize includes rubbing shoulders with the superstars of the sport, tips from Billabong’s expert photographers, surfing lessons and the chance to delve deep into the unique Hawaiian lifestyle. The photo diary of this incredible experience will also be shared on all of Billabong social media channels.

So be creative, be colourful and win an all expenses paid trip to the home and heart of surfing, Hawaii. Get inspired by
