Yeah, likewise with me Eddy. It's also tricky to get that money shot underneath the barrel, because the water sucks you behind the waves, so you really have to push against it.

Nice pics SM.
Your waves were definately better than ours yesterday, today waves are lucky to be 2ft with odd wave creeping up to 2.5ft, messy with no shape what so ever all thanks to the SE breeze!!

Yes i have seen his photography before and he has some mind blowing photography!

Thanks Eddy.
Yes ours were quite big. However I prefer about 2-3ft waves when taking photos. Because in my 4-5ft waves yesterday, you couldn't stand up where the waves were breaking so it made it impossible to get in any barrels, as you saw by my pics.

Ah hah this is where the beach guys hangout. Any hot models in bikinis? lol
But seriously. Nice pics SM and eddy. That wave shot in front of clubhouse is epic eddy. Last time I surfed back in 2001 there was an epic day at Bar Beach. Huge, drive a truck thru left and rights. Had my old bob mctavish bluebird humming.

Thanks El Junkie, yeah there were a few hotties at the beach smile

How come you don't surf anymore EN? My dad lives right near Bar Beach, it's a really nice beach, but is very overcrowded in summer.

Bar Beach is a complete circus in hotter weather. The stretch from Bar to The Cliff has got to be one of the most surfer congested areas on the East Coast when surf is good.
I gave up surfin due to a combo of things. a bad fin slash from a surf raged nutjob who attacked me with his board after I got on the same wave but way down the line from him on a two foot close out lol. Anyway the chop got ulcerated coz I wouldn't stay out of water. Eventually it got so infected I had to lay off for 3 weeks. I plunged back into the surf on a deceptively powerful swell. Got wiped out and then caught in a nasty undertoe rip and even though I paddled across it I really got tired from lack of condition. A week later a guy got a big bite taken out of him by a shark at Birdie beach on the Central Coast and I just quit surfing cold turkey. Never been on a board since. I do miss it. But fishing is my passion now and I see too many sharks to ever get back in water again

Wow, interesting story EN. The surfers down here don't seem too bad as I've never had problems with any of them so far- touch wood. My uncle actually saw a shark once when we were out there, but didn't see it again so he couldn't confirm. It was a scary moment, I must say.

Had some fun in the surf yesterday, although the water wasn't the cleanest.

Thanks Eddy, nice follow up pics. The second one is quite interesting with water moving from in from of you.

I know how you feel, I was so busting to get my first true barrel shot that I would get frustrated every time I went out and didn't get one. I must say though I'm pretty stoked that I got the money shot today.

Yeah the 3 sequential shots I got were brilliant. Interesting that you have a preference for the 2nd one of the sequence. Personally my fave is the last one (only just) because I'm 100% inside the barrel. Btw its hard to imagine that there was a thick sea fog just 15-20 mins after these were taken! smile
