take no prisoners

critical duckdives made
boards creased, broken & lost
leg ropes snapped
three times overhead, four out the back
as many spectators in the channel as surfers in the water

I watched the action from the safety of the shoulder, waiting with my shutter finger to capture Aquaman pulling into a screamer...but then I had to leave for a morning tea date.  He caught the very next wave. What kind of a dedicated water wife am I?

I caught up with him later over a green power smoothie and he had this to say about the session :
"We have had a couple of teaser swells earlier in the season, but this was our first bit of a giggle.
Much appreciated. Lets you know you're alive."

How was your day in the office?


  1. One word for this story: WICKED! xo

  2. Wow!
    Looks like the swell they've all been waiting for this season.
    Awesome shots.

  3. No that's what I'm talkin' 'bout!! Currently having post traumatic stress disorder flashbacks...and I like it.

  4. I have heard about this! That's huge!! I thought i would learn to surf there...not in this, no way!
    Look at the grin on Aqua man's face !


thanks for taking the time
