Cool dynamic shot. 75mm? You must have been right in there too!
liam beattie: Hi Stan

i reckon about 6 or 7 m's using the 75-300 lens. Had to avoid some splashing with deft sidestepping smile

Super action shot
liam beattie: thanks vintage...it really is spectacular to watch and unlike surfing one can get right in on the action without massively priced lenses

Oh gosh, is this in a pool?
liam beattie: Hi Ellie

sort of...its a shaped surface over which water is pushed at high speed. So its only a max of 10cm deep. They control the speed of the flow for novice size waves and then pros. You can just see a sponsor logo thru the water wall behind on the right...which gives an idea of the water depth
