Quicksilver Pro starts tomorrow, big waves could be game changer. Pity I won't be able to get down there.

I know BrisVegas may be a bit behind the times,lol...But the QIK/Rox has been going since Sunday.
Neat little waist to shoulder peelers.

Jon Jon went out in straight sets, Medina looks the form "player" from what ive seen.

Noosa points are flat but snapper looks shoulder high and building.

Ha ha, Sorry had it in my calendar since last year, they often move the dates around so the window fits in better.
Just haven't had the chance to watch any news or media lately. Stupid busy work. Just catching up on the WSL now.

Good to see a few Pentaxian's into surf, they are great hardy cameras for surf photography. I'm on the way up to the Goldie on the 20th-23rd hope to get some of that cyclone swell with my K311 and Bigma lens, may take the water housing out with the K5...been chasing waves around my local, here's a shot from the last cyclone swell and a link to my surf site: Latest Surf Photos | Hewysurf | Surf Photographer

Cheers Hewy

The headline is a bit OTT, but there certainly are some good 'uns to check out.

If I am honest I don't really know anything about surfing, but as a test of my Nikon D3 and Sigma 150-500MM OS HSM I did take some surfing photos for fun

Recent big swell hit our mid north coast and I did a shoot for a few of the lads towing in at a local reef break, not for the faint hearted as it's metres from rocks. I like this one as the surfer is surrounded a maelstrom of foam. Taken by Pentax K3ii 1/800 F14 with the old Bigma about it's sweet spot @ 400. I've got this in a local cafe as a mural.. Hewy
