Surfers at Moses Rock

I have been trying to get a shot of dolphins surfing for a while. This morning I got lucky. I was at Moses Rock, and there had been dolphins earlier. They were feeding offshore and a school went past. Then a pair of dolphins decided to go for a surf. They picked the same wave as a surfer was about to catch – he got quite a fright initially! I am sure they deliberately picked that wave – perhaps to show him how it was done.

  2. Love it when the fin that pops out of the water turns out to be a fellow surfer. Nice shots, incredibly lucky to have a camera ready to go.

    • No luck involved at all Amy – I have been trying for that shot for a while. I went to Moses Rock because I had heard there were dolphins there.

      I think Luke (the surfer) was relieved it was a dolphin, and he was pretty happy about sharing that wave! Thanks for the comments.

    • I would love to show you around – can’t guarantee to find surfing dolphins – but I am getting better at finding them.
