South Straddie is the sickest and heaviest wave on the Gold Coast. I have paddled back across the seaway on half a board, which is not much fun on a run-out tide. "New Zealand, here we come."

Great image...but can someone tell me a little bit more about the the photographer and what happens next? Do you need to be a surfer first before you are able to take great photos in the water?
