Fantastic shot, Steve. My collection of thrills does not include surfing. This picture is great in itself, but to imagine what was required for you to make this picture - it just blows my mind. Guy

Steve Paxton on February 13, 2010

Guy it really not that hard but you do get rolled by the wave as it crashes on you and pulls you in. it helps to have a W/P camera and kind of my own home made kit for it. guy it a great feeling out in the water we got visited by dolphins yesterday but not as close as these i am happy that you like the image and get feel for this out in the water. steve
