    No good! great image though! cheers Paul

  • Thanks so much, Paul. Pipeline is a dangerous place. The good part is that he was able to walk away and go to the hospital to take care of the gash in his head.

    The price one pays for surfing the world’s most dangerous (and deadliest) surf spot. You may want to submit this to the “Street Photography and Photojournalism” group. Great shot.

  • Thanks a lot Kevin. I will look in to it.
