    Excellent surfing images.
    The first image has a beautiful color on the wave top. Unusual cold looking mood in the image.

    Nice Stuff

    Great to have you aboard and posting. I liked the first one the best but the stopped action in all of them is slick.

    great shots!
    What break is that? I was in Portugal back in 93 and surfed some great hollow lefts like the ones in your pics, I think it was called "crazy lefts" but I'm not sure.
     
  10. Excellent shots, Sandro!

    I used a D70 and a 70-200 VR with and without a Kenko 2X TC

    That shot is one of my favorites too. It was published on a double-page of Surf Portugal (magazine )November edition.

    The nicer / bigger and more tubular waves were in Supertubos beach, Peniche. The one you mentioned is Crazy Left in Ericeira.

    Thanks, these are some of the shots i have on my Pbase account, you can check some more if you want at http://www.pbase.com/slbravo

    Amazing shots - great capture of action. Love particularly 1, 5 and 10.
     
  19. Awesome shots of awesome waves! I especially like #10 - the sharpness of the image and the colors in the water are superb.
