A cyclone 1500 km of the coast produced a surf around 2-1/2 m and Snapper Rocks was packed. Unfortunately I got soaked along with my camera and my lens pen was dry so there was a film I could not remove from the lens, so not my best shots.

My 200 mm lens looked like a PnS compared to this 600 mm +1.4 TC

nice set 4xxxx, well captured.
I like the shot of the photographer with the big lens and the guy on the paddle board

Great action shots. I wish our weather was warm enough to go in the sea with no wetsuit on. That's one hell of a lens in your last shot. I wouldn't fancy lugging that around, though I bet some of the results are enviable. ;)

Thanks Savlet, although you can find surfers any day, I don’t go surf shooting unless it’s 1 metre plus and yes our weather is great with the water around 24 - 26c, a bit scary as it only needs 26.5 for a cyclone to develop. The average summer water temp used to be 22 - 24c and guess this is an example of climate change.

Cheers

Snapper's a great spot - good shots!!
I had a wild time at Duranbah :D :D (but that's going back a few years now)

Thanks Greg, this weekend is the start of the Quick Silver and Roxy Pro at Snapper, looking at the surf forecast it will only be around 1/2 m to under 1 metre. Not sure if I will go as yet, I’ll check the surf cams before I do.

Northerners may think I’m mad but we would like some rain. :(

Cheers

You're very welcome to some of ours - we've had 4 months and rain just about every day - wettest for 250 years :( :(
