Couldn’t think of anything to post for this week’s WordPress Photo challenge of Achievement, but I decided this might do:

Ride those waves!

Ride those waves!

I’m always in awe of how these surfers balance on the board and stay standing as the waves crash down!


  1. Cool, very well captured – I myself do better with sail on… 😀

  2. It must feel so exhilarating. 🙂

  3. I would say this is a definite achievement…at least in my book. It sure would be for me 🙂

  4. Tricky – and what an achievement to actually ride a wave. I have been trying to capture some surfers here, but there hasn’t been much surf recently. Maybe today will be the day 😉

    I echo your thoughts Sue .. and one cannot help but be mesmerised by watching them .

  7. Excellent shot, and perfect for this week’s challenge. Yes, I too wonder how those surfers stand upright – the waves are always making them bop up and down. I can’t even balance on a bicycle, I don’t think I’ll fare very wall trying to stand on the waves 😀

  8. That would certainly be an achievement for me!! I stayed this one out Sue.
