Surfing Photography at Flat Rock, 31st July, 2009
I thought there might have been an opportunity this afternoon for some photos around about high tide. So off i headed to Flat Rock to see what was going on. I parked up the road a bit, looking right into the barrel at the Cowrie Hole. There were a few good waves coming in, so I got out and set up the camera and started taking some shots.
This guy slotted into this inside barrel.
And then he just slid down the face, having the time of his life. Ain’t surfing fun?
This guy was getting deep inside the section, using the old drop knee technique.
And then got even deeper into the tube. Great stuff!
After a while I went over to the baths and shot some stuff out the back at Flat Rock. There were a couple of good waves coming in but I think the photos from the inside section were better. I then wandered over to Newcastle Beach and there some guys out right down the end of Newcastle South Beach. I took some wide shots of the guys surfing under the cliff, but the ones above were the pick of the day.
All in all, a fun afternoon of surfing and photography and I was relatively happy with how the photos turned out. cheers.
