The Key to Youth

... is maintaing your sense of adventure! Ok, this may be a stretch, but hey.. this is my submission.

Today, at the beach, these awesome guys were out here doing whatever extreme sport this is. I got some amazing pictures of them and this is one of my favorites! It was so much fun watching them. I took almost three hundred pictures of them, but of course, I only kept about fifty.


I'm including this picture in the post so that you could see what they were doing. I thought it was windsurfing, but Tony insists that it's not windsurfing, but we're not sure what exactly it is. Do you know? If you do, please... do tell...
The specs on the top pic are.... f/ 5.3, 1/1250, ISO 200.

You are awesome!!! Seriously- I love both of these. Great processing on them. I do wish there was a little more room at the top of his head- it leads your eye out of the photo. My vote is for windsurfing!

Thanks, April!!! And I know exactly what you mean, when I was looking at them in bridge, I was so mad that the top of his head was cut off in this one! ugh! They are moving so fast, I've got to get better at these. :) It was so much fun, though, I think the guy thought I work for the paper or something, because he kept zooming on the surf right in front of me with a huge grin on his face! LOL.... I think they're going to be disappointed when they're not on the front page tomorrow morning. :)

Kite surfing is SIC!!!! totally looks like a blast (sadly, my upper body strength would get me a face full of water and that's it)
