The Margaret River Drug Aware Pro surfing contest is on at the moment. All the worlds top surfers are down there. These guys are so dedicated they go to nearby surf breaks to practise when they are not competing. These shots are of Mick Fanning at Gas Bay.
I went down to Surfers Point to have a look this morning. In between the showers I got this shot of the crowd, and the surf – 10-12 ft, and probably going to get bigger before the competition is over. There was a crowd of probably 4-500, and growing rapidly. The car park went from half full to full while I was there.
I decided to stick with the landscape shot, and leave the closeups of the surfers to the guys with the monster lenses on that platform at the bottom RHS of the image.
