After showing yesterday's photo of an empty surfboard, I thought I would show a few earlier photos of the same surfer in the moments before his fall. In the top photo he seems to be doing fine. In the second photo, however, he is leaning too far into the wave and is catching extra water that is splashing up and obscuring the view of him. Tomorrow I will show you what happens next.
Obviously to get such a rapid sequence of a surfer falling I used the continuous shooting mode on my camera. I was not hoping to catch a wipe out, of course, as I would wish a long and successful ride for every surfer on every wave.
I took these photos on Langosta beach, just behind our condo. A person from Texas who rented our condo earlier this month sent me an email after his stay and said he wants to come back if it is not rented for awhile and stay there and work using the internet an the USA phone line while taking advantage of what he called "epic surfing."
