Wow a sunset with a crapy wave. Never seen one of those before.

Don't be an ass. The wave might be quite small, but it is quality.

To be honest, on the thumb I thought it was Padang Padang. You have a little slice of indo right there, without the warm water.

From the thumb I thought this was Balangan. Quite different weather, nice set up.

Theres a nice mood to this shot, you just know he's knackered from being in 3-4 hours and this wave was just what he needed

Great shot. Good to see UK shots that don't need flash assistance.
