Love this pic. Does this spot hold size? Reminds me of a few warm water breaks I know, down in south america, minus the castle...

It can get meaty, but she is a pretty fickle beast and is a bit high maintenance with her swell/wind demands, so you have more chance stepping in rocking-horse shit than scoring regularly on this one.

Im not sure the more im looking at fundage the more i think its not a good idea. i already have a Nikon pronea slr and i have a sony digital (point and shoot type thing which is fine for ppl pictures) my gf also have a Lomography Diana and one of them fashion shooting, hold by your waiste, and look down into, kind of cameras. so i think i should be ok and the priority i think is buying an ipod.....

I use all sorts of cameras, from 35mm to large format (the old fashioned ones you put your head under the cloth, like in the old movies). Most of the stuff I have uploaded here is shot on digital slr. Currently have a Canon 7d, I haven’t really put it through a good trial yet but can’t fault it so far. What’s your budget dog? I’ll look into it for you.

P.S. Did you say “Fight them on the beaches” or “bite them on their features”?

I’m afraid as soon as the mystery 1 voter has struck a photo has no chance of getting on the front page as it then takes dozens of 5’s to bring the average up to make it qualify and most people only seem to vote on the front page gallery shots not the browsing gallery. It’s an unfair system really as one person can essentially veto an image with their negativity, just ask Sharpy, he has had a fair few classic shots that haven’t seen the front page for the same reasons. As for the web address logo, I’ll look into it. How about “www.f**k off voting 1’s on half decent pictures.com!!”

PS This shot deserves a front page. Maybe it's not sharpy enough or perhaps VP needs to blatantly scribble a .com thru the middle. How about ... STOKED MIDDLE AGED SURFER

Nah, they usually load it full of grape-shot to thin the boogers out at weekends.
