Hey thanks straddiepaul, pretty lucky to have such a unique location on my doorstep that's home ground to some very talented locals and heaps of overseas visitors - so the potential for some good photos is pretty good.

I've been called out on this kite surfing/boarding thing before but I guess I'm always so focused on sharing the passion as best I can that I forget about titles and labels and stuff.

What drives me is the "thanks mate, really appreciate that"' you get when you share the pics with the people in them.

It's the internet so someone's always gonna have a whinge about something and I appreciate what you're saying but personally, I'm going with "it doesn't really matter" - and if that puts anyone's nose out of joint, well, maybe they should re-evaluate their priorities.

But I'll try to get it right in the future all the same : )

Big heads up to you
I hear you stand for hours with $15 k worth of gear taking picks for no reward
great clarity in the shots

Great shots. I especially like the one of the grommet.
I bet the folks at The Pond are stoked to have some professional quality pics of themselves busting moves.
Well done.

Nah you heard wrong cauncy, just a $1000 Nikon D7200 with a borrowed lens.

It's just a hobby for me mate, I don't expect or need reward.

Love seeing you guys behind a lens when im out there - makes me push harder every time (and as you see - crash bigger also).

Cheers beebee, the grommet is none other than Nathan Pizzuto - team rider for Ozone Australia.
