2010 Mavericks Surf Competition with the Nikon D90!


I'm sorry, hope you weren't expecting actual shots of the surfers because we couldn't even see them from the beach since the surfers were a half mile off shore and it was very hazy. So anyway the reason for the post is what was suppose to be all about the surf competition turned into about 50 or so spectators that were injured by a huge wave that just came up and wiped out everyone! We were on the beach also but were not hit by the big one...you probably heard about it on the news. I got one quick shot of the big one just as it was hitting the first people. I also videoed a little bit of a smaller wave as I and everyone else tried to scale the cliff to avoid it. It was quite the day at the beach......
