@Craiger: Thanks Craig. This shot was taken this time last year. I was amused by this guy. I have no idea who he is, but he was really chuffed that I wanted to take some photos of him.

Maybe you did take this last year... but what's more Australian than surfing?! Great shot, Helen!! I really like his expression... and damn those waves look inviting!

Truly the surfing one can enjoy after the <a href="http://www.travelhouseuk.co.uk/flights/australia_newzealand/australia.htm">flights to Australia</a> he takes is quite entertaining. There some outclass beaches where you sure can be a surfer in the making.
