Default Surfing the waves via powered jetski

G'day all

While the everyday surfers were surfing in the age-old manner, I spotted this jet ski fella doing it all back-to-front

He was having a great ol' time, targetting a wave before powering into it and becoming airborne for a moment or two

exif- Fuji X-s1; 1/1900s x f8,0; 575mm [ff equiv]; iso-800
[slightly cropped as well]

ps- there was over 50m separation between him and the closest surfer

Has Lumix mirrorless & superzoom cameras and loves their amazing capabilities
Spends 8-9 months each year travelling Australia

Quite the contrast! Nicely captured! I love it!

Take care & Happy Shooting!

NOTE: I'm trying to capture the picture in my head! Not the one my camera sees!
