My son went down to the beach this morning to bodyboard. It is just at the end of winter here and although the sun shone the outside tempreture was around only 14c. The boy is nuts:-)

I visited Oz a couple of times for surf trips and was supprised how cold it got in winter. It was still ALOT warmer compared to what i'm used to at home. But the cold dosnt matter, its the fun the counts and your sons doing pretty well there i think :-)
I like the last shot the best
What was the name of the beach?

This was taken at my local beach about 3 ks from me. Its called Middleton beach and it's in Albany at the southern most place in western australia, known for it's cold winters and mild summers (although we do get some very hot weather here in summer). Lots of people retire around here and a lot of people who come from england like our climate.

ps

I see you are from cornwall. My grand mother lived there until she came out here to live. She is always saying how much Albany reminds her of cornwall.

Love the colours in the second, and the "spray" of the surf in three. Great shots.

Maybe nuts but it is a healthy sport. I noticed he wasnt wearing a wetsuit. I'm sure the water would be just as cold as Adelaides? We have a "Middelton" surf beach also i think its spelt the same. Would love to surf your part of the world one day, the coast looks spectacular.
