Sharon, to alleviate your (and perhaps others') concerns, I am showing this photo of the surfer at the end of his run. He managed to stay up riding his wave all the way to the beach, as you see in this photo.
It is a good thing that he kept his balance, as at the time of this photo he was surfing in water that is about ankle deep. He was able to step off the surfboard onto the sand at the end of his run. Most surfers end their run before this so that they can head back out more quickly to catch the next wave.
The sandy beach in the background is Playa Grande, the main nesting site for the endangered leatherback turtles.
This week we are showing photos of the red rock scenery of Sedona, Arizona on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
