The wave of the day does it for me big time. Nice work Steen Barnes , Shaun Anderson and Swellnet.
In one photo you've encompassed everything nice about surfing. If I was a wanker I'd say that it was perfect except for the fact he is in a wetsuit. Which it is , it's perfect .....except for the fact he's in a wetsuit.

I was thinking the SN team could break it down to wave of the week in the office, then have 52 pics for us to vote on. Over the course of a week cull 10 pics a day, leaving 12 pics for Friday. Final vote and keep the winner hidden to put the article and interview together (and enough time to mail off the SN leggie and stubbie holder) and drop the winner the following week sometime.

Great idea Stu.

No worries , I'll go left.

The empty line up shots lately have made for some awesome mind surfing . Being a legend in my own bath time I must say that I have been shredding them all.

I really like this Steve Arklay guys photo's, they always have a real uniqueness to them no matter where they are shot from land or water, it always makes your either feel like you are there or want to be there.

He has a very good eye.

Agree. Like all good photographers, Steve has a signature style, usually identifiable before you read the photo credit.

I am sure that most of the Indo locals are looking forward to the next Aussie invasion .

The reaction in the photo could be that there are waves like this coming through all the time . Or , that was the only wave that size that has popped out of nowhere .

It's a fun wave when it's like that, but I'm thinking that the crowd has been photoshopped out.
On that subject, Tom Constant's board in yesterday's WOTD appears to be missing in action.

Paddy - accepting a facebook/photog claim is like accepting that Tim Paine made the decision to step away from cricket himself.

Hmmm... now that you mention it, and the more I think about it, I'm not convinced any of the wave of the day pics are even real. Apparently you can download photoshop for nothing via torrent. Just sayin...
