We have a lot down here in Christchurch

Here's a different view of a Kitesurfer, from memory he was in the middle of a trick but he could have been losing his board.

Shot using a canon 400 f5.6 L with canon 40D, the image is about 50% of full frame, cropped to lose empty sky.

A shame no one else is posting here yet, so I will add another. At certain times of the year we can get out onto a shingle spit and have the Kitesurfers pass overhead - like so

Any more Brian? Smile

The second one would make a great advert for 'aboards'! Wink

I've got literally hundreds of the blooming things, them and surfers and sailboarders and paddleboarders (you get the idea!)

but I promise I won't bore you all with them Grin .

Its not my fault, I'm only 5 minutes away from several good beaches for this type of action and it has to be done

Thank you! Smile

I would have had a go, but living in Mid Devon (as far from the sea as you can get, it's not something I've ever watched/seen!) Grin

This was my first attempt, (also my first visit to the seaside this year!), and it was a dismal day, so not quite the amazing images you other guys have got.

Hi Stephen, welcome to EPZ! Smile

Don't knock it, it's a good image - if you upload it into your portfolio I am sure folk would visit and comment/vote on it! Smile

As the brief asked for some kit shots I thought I'd put this one up (I just can't keep a way - so many shots - so little time to show them! Smile ) I've watched them spend hours setting up and taking down for only 30 minutes action - strange sport.
