"Shoulder hoppers" agreed. He should be either racing down the line or racing down the line. Or, maybe he got tired and figured cut back to close out and covered in foam?

Yeah thats me. Wanted to buy you a pasty but you left before we hadnt even got changed! Well done on the photo. Been googling mail order pasties but you have to buy 12 to make it worth while. Will send you a box when you get that barrel photo of me next time!

Save yer money Patrick...I can tell by your attack stance coming off the top of that wave that you're no kook...even if you are from the UK. If you just want to buy him a pasty out of gratitude or pity that's up to you. He did say he took a beating to get that shot. And we're glad he did...get the shot I mean!!!

Nice shot Veeps. Looks like wind wasn't a problem that day. The distant breaking section (and dark bluffs behind that) to the lower right and the surfer cutting back in the upper left, all against a background of white clouds makes for an interesting contrast...esp. in B&W. Did he keep going left towards the oncoming break and then pull another cutback into a smokin' right barrel? I want to believe he did. The only surfing I'm doing is in my mind :( . Didn't even get those ankle snappers I was so excited about :[ . Thanks for sharing.

For all I know he could have built up some speed and ramped it into a 720! I took the breaking wave on my head and disappeared into the foam. Lets give him the benefit of the doubt though eh.
