Surfing on 12 foot plus waves in Mozambique was inspiring for the surfers let alone for a photographer taking pictures both in-water and off the point. In-water surf photography while floating out in the back line in a remote part of southern africa is exciting to say the least. The point break was constantly changing and when the tide started sucking me round the point and after 41/2 hours of swimming with one fin, I decided it was better to retire to the rocks and continue shooting from there. Dominic King, owner of Kingdom Surf School operates in mozambique and as a community development initiative supported by Quicksilver teaches local children to surf. Nic, Craig and Dominic King who I met at Turtle Cove Surf camp in Torfino, Tofo near Inhambane were key in terms of inspiring me to attempt this sort of photography. It was quite stunning working with the surfers in clean water , a toss up which risk to worry about, their boards coming within inches of my head versus getting dumped by massive waves.
