Pismo Beach Longboard Surf Contest ~ 2013


Contestants, and others, gathered on a foggy morning at Pismo Pier. I had not photographed surfing before, so I thought I might see what could come of it. The surf was not extraordinary, but the surfers appeared to know what they were doing. I must confess that I know very little about surfing, and so the photography here may not be a surfer's ideal interpretation of the morning. Nevertheless, below are some of the results. These images do not compress well, so file sizes are larger than those usually found at The Preserve.
