surfer photos

This is one of the things we did this weekend.

Went to the North Shore and it seems there had been a surfing contest.  They were handing out trophies when we walked up.

The water is crowded with surfers still.  I don't really get out there to watch surfers, so I don't know if this is normal.  Look how flat the water is!

Here is a shot of some surfing.  Not great.  Point and shoot is not good for this type of shot.

It was very cloudy all day.  The North Shore is a very romantic place to go to see some spectacular sunsets.  This one isn't great, but the sky was pretty, several shades of blue.  Trust me, this looks a lot better bigger and in person.

Surfer dude.

See the tall figure in the way back?  He's back there in the calmer waters, standing on his surfboard with a paddle.  It's a popular new form of exercise.  Okay, so it may not be new, but it's new to me and the general public.  It's way cool to see.  Again, wrong camera!

These are great pics! I've never heard of anyone paddling on a surfboard. That would be great exercise!
