Good Swim / by craig levers

Last weekend was one out of the bag for Auckland's West coast. We had a run of great surf again.

I have to come clean, I haven't been able to swim out with the water housing for 7 weeks. I'd like to say I go for a water shot at least once a week. It just hasn't worked out. But Saturday did, time to don the flippers.

I don't really like photos of small wave studies. You know, those shore dump shots. That's not to say I'm diss'ing photographers that do them. They just aren't my thing. I like images with a bit of volume in the wave.

It's exciting swimming out in solid surf, Saturday was exciting. The lungs were burning and the legs weren't flipping very well, clearly someone needs to spend more time on the rower...or swim more that once every 7 weeks.
