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?

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

Spot on action! A blue sky would have been icing, but I know it wasn't possible.
Well done!

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.

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..
