Angus On The Water - Thematic Photography

When Carmi posted 'On The Water' as the theme for this week's thematic photographic I knew exactly what I would show.

My grandson, Angus, is currently in Nicaragua at the ISA Junior World Surfing Championships. He is a member of the GB team for the Under 16 Boys. I have no pictures of him there on the water but have a collection from elsewhere.

You can watch the surfing in Nicaragua live at http://www.isasurf.org/ each day from 3pm UK time (8am Nicaragua). Angus should be on around 9.30pm (UK) tonight.

Meanwhile back in Cornwall things are much more sedate.

Your grandson looks a fantastic surfer! And those are great shots! All action there! And as you say, things are much more decorous in Cornwall!

So were did he learn to surf in the first place?

Great pictures.

Those action shots on the surf are wonderful. They're all the more special to me because most of them are at Cornwall. All my books feature Cornwall from the presnt-day paranormal series, to the futuristic fantasies. Love the place. From Authentic Blogger: http://475035832790540880.weebly.com/blog.html

Wow - those are amazing shots, and he is obviously a very accomplished surfer!
Has he ever been down to the South Pacific to surf? I live 11 kilometres from one of the best surf beaches in New Zealand.

Great pictures, Bob.
