Surf in Style

By achieverswales
Thanks everyone for C & Cs yesterday! This shot was taken yesterday at Rest Bay Porthcawl, there was a surfing competition and skate board competitions there. the conditions were terrible, high wind, tide out so even the 500 lens was usless from the viewing area, the surf was also very low, because of high ISO a lot of noise, I liked this one for the style and lack of colour in the sea, I added a white vignette for effect.
