Surfing wipeout

This photo shows a young woman as she crashes into the surf while falling off her surfboard. I was swimming and standing out in the surf on Tamarindo beach when I took this photo as she wiped out while surfing past me.

This photo shows how gently sloping is Tamarindo beach. From the vantage point of the camera above the surf, you can tell that the water is less than waist high. I am standing at the point at which the waves break, yet I am still quite a distance from shore.

This week we are showing photos of the Danish flair for design on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I'm a bit jealous of your weather. Looks like the place to be, in the water with camera.

It also shows the power of those waves as they come crashing to the shore.

your waterproof camera allows you to take great water photos

Nice shot of the action!

Good action shot, Dave. I used to surf as a kid off the beaches of Los Angeles...lots of fun.

Now I surf the Internet.

Re your comment on Ocala DP: I think you're right, at least in the sense, that these benches are used primarily by smokers...but I don't know for sure as there was nobody around when I took the photo.
