Surf's up!

Here are two surf pictures shown in this article entitled "Coast surfer tackles Tahitian monster" in Sunshine Coast Daily online with author unidentified. The surfer's name is David Scard of Caloundra who was surfing in the round four heat of the Air Tahiti Nui Von Zipper trials leading to the World Championship Billabong Pro event in Teahupoo (Tahiti ) that begins next week.

According to the article
With the swell peaking at 5m late yesterday afternoon and 8ft to 12ft slabs at dawn yesterday, Teahupoo created a perfect arena for the world-class barrel riders to showcase their skills.
When everything's right, the surfer certainly makes it look easy:

Of course that's not always the case, and here's a "heavy wipe out"

My thumbs up for the photographer Steve Robertson of Surfing Australia for capturing these exciting pictures -- too irresistable not to post them again here!
