skate action from the Vans ramp at the ripcurl board masters , love this guys position and the eye contact, they throw themselves very high off the coping and pull moves that are magic
Nice one Paul. Great action which looks very close! Shame about the lens flare! Didn't see any photos of yours in the magazine mate?
what lens flair I cant see any, saw the mag but didnt see my pic either, yes these guys were very close, bugger yes I can now on the ramp, well we were shooting into the sun as the ladder is on the wrong side of the ramp this year
nice one, even though I prefer your previous series with blue sky.
we did have blue sky , then 5mins before the 2 hours overdue comp the clouds came over, but shooting into the sun would have bleached it anyway

There is a green mark on the ramp, straight down from the Rip Curl sign. Maybe wrong though.
looking at the bigger picture it may be a stain on the ramp though, you will have to get time off for this event one year and come down and shoot it with me mike
rechecked it is the green lens flair bogeyman

I thought you are a pro and should be able to overcome that...:-p lol
well did have fill in high speed synch flash going on otherwise the skaters were just black blobs against a bright sky, but the tacky little excuse of a lens hood on the 17040mm just doesnt work!!
anyway who said i was a pro skate tog
may I join you for the ripcurl next year?
yes we could make it a either a mini meet or a teaching session with a very low number to teacher ratio
that would be great!
Spot on action! A blue sky would have been icing, but I know it wasn't possible.
Paul, I will definately try to get down!

What would you like us to teach you?
I am always up for learning new tricks, if you feel you can teach me some, justine feel welcome to come down and join us next year
I was only kidding Paul. I was down at the Ripcurl event in 2005 I think it was, thought it was a great event, sadly missed it this year due to other comitments.
the surf wasnt as good as 05 but the skating was better !!
and I bet the babes were as good looking as always
Great picture, as always.
Wish I got down this year...went down a few years back as a friend of mine was running the Miss Reef 'bikini' competition...
Be good to get down next year and meet up with a few people, if I am not in Oz..
