Nice Day for a surf!!!

  1. This afternoon I thought I'd go down to Alexandra Headlands and give my new 8 gig card a try while there was a few surfer's about.

    I won't bore you with too many but here's a nice series you might enjoy.

    It does not show their face, but I love the first one...great action shot with his face in the water spray.
  6. Nikon D2X / 300VR lens / 1.7 teleconverter / gitzo tripod / full wimberly head

    Not sure what the wild side is - I am guessing its shooting from the surfers rear side rather than from in front

    Love that first shot! The deep blue of the water that forms the background really contrasts nicely with the spray of the water coming off the crest.
  12. Hi Bob,

    This is an excellent set-up. The 300VR combined with the TC-1.7 works great, and I almost feel there is no need for a 500.

    I would love to see a picture of this on a full Wimberly, as I have often thought of trying that out. Up until now I have been using the BH-55 and Sidekick, and I have always wondered if I would be better off with the full rig.
