This shot of the Dixon Park Surf Boat Crew was taken from the Blacksmiths breakwall using a Nikon D80, 55-200 mm lens. I watched in awe as the boys rowed up the Swansea Channel, over the bar and onto Blacksmiths Beach. The previous weekend they had secured third place at the Ocean Thunder Professional Surf Boat Racing Championship at Dee Why and are now training for the Coffs Harbour event this coming weekend, 29th/30th November 2008. The sheer power and skill of this sport can be seen in this shot as they attempt to row the boat back out to sea.
