Powerhouse sets at St Kilda







I scored an invitation to the opening of the new KFC in Andy Bay Rd tonight, free smorgasboard feed of KFc including the new BBQ chickens. mmm, and yuk, ate myself silly and never want to have KFC again. Anyway, before I went I swung by St Clair, it was really messy but some large sets coming through.. so drove over to St Kilda, where there were two guys out paddling way out back and catching some powerful sets about 7-8 foot. Just a few pics from the session attached. I also discovered that doing sequential shooting with my camera on the raw setting, turns out very badly out-of-focus pics after the first two shots. hmm

Sweet shots. Yea, st clair was super sloppy when I checked it after work. I can't believe it was that good just down the road. Tomorrow's my day off so it sounds like it have to get out early.

Great to see you if you come down. Don't forget to get in touch.. I think surfscab was going to take you a few places to surf. Maybe get a few good trophy shots of you to take back :0)
