I had an enjoyable day photographing the 2011 Quiksilver Pro Surfing competition at the famous “Superbank” at Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast, Australia. The highlight of the day was the late afternoon “Expression Session” where Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning and others tried to show their best moves without the pressure of a standard heat. Here are some pics from the day:
The only frustration about Snapper Rocks is that the peak action happens in front of or to the right of the rocks themselves, but this view is normally obscured by the rocks or the brave spectators on top of them…Still, a nice venue to see the world’s best surfers.
Thanks for looking.
