Riding the Wave

A picture from the Quiksilver ISA World Junior Championships, Piha. Taken on Monday. Unfortunately I don’t know the name or nationality of the surfer, would love to credit the performance. (Of course, he is the “white surfer” – they always competed three at a time: one white, one yellow, one red.)

When I wrote this last night, I also emailed Pablo Zanocchi, Media Manager, ISA, who promptly supplied the information next morning: “Thats Dane Staples from South Africa!!!”

Much obliged, thanks!


  1. That’s a great sport action photo. You could send an email to ISA, I’m sure they could help you. I took some photos at an event last year and was able to identify most of the athletes that way.

  2. Aha! I knew you’d come through. Terrific action shot…great colors and I love the water spraying all over the place!

  3. Thanks Steffe, that’s exactly what I did, and as you see, I got the answer. Thanks for all comments!

  4. Awesome action shot of Mr. surfer dude!

  5. gotta admire those who can do clever things like surf!

  6. This is a fabulous shot! Congratulations!
