Maintaining surfing balance

Here is a photo of a guy struggling to maintain his balance while surfing. As I hinted yesterday, I am showing this to maintain my status as a gender neutral website, since I showed a photo of a surfer girl struggling to maintain her balance yesterday.

This guy is at the end of his run, having stayed on the wave all the way to the shore. I presume that it is more difficult to stay up on a wave as he wave gets smaller, similar to maintaining balance on a bicycle.

This week we are showing photos from Tanzania, featuring great wildlife shots that my wife took, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

He's still standing. I guess that is a good thing!

I did a little surfing when a youngster living in LA...I remember it being a lot of fun, but difficult; I swallowed a lot of salt water!

Re your comment on Ocala DP: The effect is a Photoshop "action." Very easy. If you wish I can send you the action or I have another process (simple) which isn't quite as dramatic. Just send me an email.

learning to surf seems a challenge at least you just fall in the water

Hey, the guy is still on it. I give him credit. Good shot.

Impressive, I would fall off that board in one second.

A good series of surfers, Dave!

Great catch on this one. He looks to be at the end of his ride. Now the long paddle out to try again.
