Ironkids

This is a big weekend in Busselton/Dunsborough/Yallingup. It is the Ironman weekend in Busselton. At Yallingup the Malibu Surfing competition is being held, although it seems that it may just be a paddling competition as there isn’t a lot of surf at the moment. Still the Malibu is also a social event, so I guess a lot of old friends will meet and tell a lot of stories.

Associated with the Ironman is the Ironkids event. Here is a shot of the kids swimming at the Busselton foreshore. This whole event is huge and the kids are enjoying being part of the atmosphere.

I have several shots of the kid in front with his mouth wide open. His mouth is wide open in all of them but he is also in front so I guess the technique works. Olympic hopefuls take notice!
