Photography - Kelly Slater

I happen to live in Huntington Beach and so it simply wouldn't do to not go to the US Open of Surfing when it's in town. This year I actually have a decent camera and in only it's second outing I managed to take a whopping 600 pictures. (This was mostly due to it being on Sport mode and the fact that I was there for about three hours.) So I didn't have a huge zoom but with a decent spot on the pier it was enough to get some decent shots. I think a lot of it is predicting when the surfer is going to go for a wave and if you're really lucky they will be coming towards you. It's 50/50 as they can go either left or right. So I was supposed to post this hmmm back in September but seeing as Kelly just won his 11th World title I think I can squeeze it in now.
