Surfer

OK, yesterday I promised the female readers of this blog that I would show another photo of surfing form. This surfer has obviously just emerged from the water, as his hair and shirt are still wet.

It looks like he is trying to decide whether he should go back out to catch some more waves, go join the beach volleyball game that is in progress in front of the Barcelo Resort on Langosta Beach, or maybe he is checking out some of the other surfers.

This is an example of how being a Daily Photo blogger causes one to take more photos of everyday surroundings than one would ordinarily take if it were not for the necessity to post a new photo every day. I guarantee that I would not have taken this photo if it were not for my estimation that there might be some viewers of this blog who would be interested in the seeing the photo.

This week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site we are showing photos of three locations on the Riviera Maya: the Mayan ruins of Tulum, the eco-park of Xelha, and a resort on the beach in Cancun.

Nice muscles. His board shorts could be a better fit though.☺
Cheers.

A great looking surfer is always a good shot. Well done.

I notice that only women commented :-)))

I like the other photos too.

So, did he catch another wave or opt for the game? That might depend on who he saw over there where he is looking.

It gets the female vote of approval! Keep it up...!

I like this place! I love the idea and wish there was a place like this in Astoria, Queens. I am a surfer and found a "real surfer bar" in Point Break NYC. I am kinda jealous ;0PIts filled with surfers, people who like surfers, people who like the beach and people who don't want to live close to town. I really like this place. You know what they have these real Proctor and Channel One surfboards on the wall. It's nice for coming any day of the week and eating a late brunch. The food was outstanding. The brunch and sides were prefect and tasty. It is a perfect "escape" from city living. It is probably one of the only places where you can get a nice frozen pina colada or margarita. The service was on hit. They came up and checked on us so many times and made sure everything was up to par. It gets very active and the bartenders keep everybody having a good time. The bartender was very accommodating. He was nice enough to make a drink, that wasn't on the menu, for me :0) Did I mention the bartenders are nice eye candy. It was amazing to see their “das boot” which is shaped like a boot filled with beer. Don’t get me wrong, I am not drunk…it’s an actual boot shaped beer container ready to be emptied. Try it ..You will love it!! Oh. How can I forget, they even have a wheel o' shots where you just have to spin it and have to drink whatever shot it lands on!! Now call that bar creativity at its best!!! And when I spill a tray full of shots on myself, the bartender so kindly remakes them for me? Good music, too, and the decor helped us weather an otherwise overcast and rainy day. You know that old song "Brandy"? It goes, "Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be. But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea." I believe Brandy works here. No reason, I just do. And that song happens to be a guilty pleasure of mine, so that's a plus in my book. You can simply waltz over to this colorful and warm establishment, enjoy some drinks with friends, and walk home. The bar is right at the center, so you can walk to either side for drinks, and the bartenders are friendly and at your service. There is a variety of seating, good music, and friendly neighborhood people to make your time more enjoyable. Not pretentious, very cozy, I think Point Break is a fabulous place to spend some time with friends.
