These guys were having a great time joining in the surfing competition yesterday. Longboard surfing championships 7-7-07 Denmark western Australia











check the shadow of the dolphin under the surfer, they would pop up in front of them out of nowhere :-)

Wow, these are very cool. Do the dolphins often appear during during the surfing competition?

What great captures! You must be proud of them! They are very unusual in nature and reflect the playful nature of the dolphins. That moment could be gone very quickly in "real time" but you and your camera caught it.
