Elastic Surfing

By lgc  
This is Pedro Lima , one of Pernambucos best pro surfers, he has taken this hit so hard its almost flipped him upside down, and for those who are wondering, the answer is yes he did make it back to land this one!!

A great shot, you must use some serious stuff to get images this sharp, look forward to seeing more of the same.

Fabulous image. Thanks loads for your comments on my surfing image. I totally agree with what you said. Unfortunately unlike you the beach is miles away from where these guys were surfing. I was actually on the harbour wall - so I couldn't get the front of him on this occasion. I agree it makes for a better photo though! I'll definitely keep it up!
