I took at the beach in Porto. I saw the guy go out near the waves and knew that on some point he would get a surprise... So I set up my camera and waited, and sure enough, after a while a big wave came in and he had to run rather fast to escape it... He got his fun, and I got my photo..

Thanks for your comments. He had some friends on the beach that he was showing off to, but I think he got a little surprised over the size of the wave :-)

Good capture! As for the ocean, she is no respecter of persons is she?

Thanks Mark. You are right about that! But he was in no real danger, and actually came back to repeat it (although I think he got a little surprised by the size of this one) Smile
