    I won a Comp !!

    I was at Snapper Rocks this morning covering the Quiksilver Pro Board riding competition , I got a good shot , I thought , After processing a got an email from "Landrover Australia" one of the sponsers saying that there is a daily Photo Comp of your best image of the day , I entered at 1.00pm and I just got a phone call 4.00pm saying I've won a signed "Kelly Slater" Surfboard

    Whoo Hoo !! And I did want to start surfing again , Thats the quickest enter win I've ever had

    You must a long shutter delay or a water proof remote, to get a shot of yourself surfing already mate.

    Thanks Rick and Lance, I thought it would have been judged by "Facebook" votes , So the more friends you have , The more votes , No I was wrong , It was picked by the Reps at Landrover on site at the Quiky , You could blow me away , I'm shocked and stoked at the same time
