Happy New Year everyone!
Last Thursday 12 January 2012 I enjoyed a super morning photographing surfing at Duranbah beach (which is at Tweed Heads, in northern New South Wales (NSW), adjacent to the Queensland / NSW border; at the southern end of The Gold Coast; Australia). Here are some pics from a beautiful morning with a strong south-easterly breeze blowing in:
For people using search terms like bodyboarding, boogieboarding, drop-knee and throw-tail :) :)
I had a bit of luck later in the shoot, too. I was finishing up and had just left the beach when, who did I see? None other than Dual World Surfing Champion Mick Fanning, just arriving! A short time later I was back into the swing of things, albeit from a bit further away. Here's a 'pic of Mick'!
Here's my Smugmug photo gallery. Here's an 'Extras' gallery of unedited additional photos (including quite a few more of Mick Fanning).
Thanks so much for looking, and wishing everyone a great 2012!
