    Whoa, quick run, I forgot to zip up the dry bag !

    that is spectacular
    It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom -- for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

    lol I've seen that on more than one occasion.

    Generally results in having sand ground into your scalp for a couple of weeks after.

    Great shot.

    I'm off for a surf this weekend in the Catlins, have just ordered the new Gopro HD surf camera, which mounts on the front of a surfboard, and does either video or time lapse stills, but don't think it will turn up in time for this trip.

    They're great shots. I've got a 25 year long obsession with surfing, and have a room full of surf mags to match it There's some amazing surf photogs out there.

    If you like that sort of thing, try to check out a book called "The Surf Photography of Logan Murray" He's a kiwi, one of the best surf photographers in the world. His book is a cottage industry printing affair, but I picked up a copy at a book store in Gisborne. His work is just stunning, mainly NZ stuff, incredible sea scapes, landscapes and sports shots.

    Oo, I've heard that name before. I live in Whakatane and have an old friend Tony Ogilvy, I'm sure he speaks of him.

    yeh, the swell reports this week have been calling 5 - 6 metres

    It's gonna drop off today, to a nice cruisey 2 metre swell, which will stick around until Sunday afternoon.

    I'd love to check out some of the big wave surfing at Papatowai one day.....from the beach

    Biggest I look on was 10/12Ft at the mount ....... Storm surf ........ very strong off shore wind. Big thick slow waves. Rode one from 1 end of the main beach to the other. Wave reformed 3 x and I managed to stay on.

    Not all memorys were that great .... there was the time I got dumped and held under ...... then everything went very peaceful ......... untill I surfaced

    Don't know that it was that big, but there was some bigger sets coming in, some real nice looking waves at times but christ knows how you'd get out there.

    goodluck surfing in this

    God made two great lights; the sun to rule by day and the moon to rule by night. He also made the stars.
    And He set them all in the heavens to give light upon the earth; And God saw that it was good.

    Ive seen the light and it is indeed very good
