Action in the Waves

Action in the Waves

When the waves are right, and there is a skilled operator, this is exhilarating to watch. Probably exhilarating to do, as well, but I can’t speak from experience. This picture is from a surf championship at South Piha Beach.

The City Daily Photo theme for December is “action shot”. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.


  1. YESSS !
    Action at its best !
    (Aussie beaches have treated me to enough first hand opportunites to experience the exhilaration to watch, if not to practice)

  2. Brilliant capture.

  3. Tremendous action here, Paul. I envy you your lens! Very cooperative of the surfer to wear such a bright top to stand out from the brilliantly coloured waters. Great stuff …
