And no doubt some dumb idiots don't! Good picture Aussie
Aussie: They rescue heaps but sadly most who drown are tourists who under estimate the current or don't understand the 'swim between the flags'.

A substantial Big Boys' toy, Aussie.
Did you ask for a sample "rescue"?
What would we do without them, lovely capture of them in action. It makes me want my holiday all over againsmile
hey Sarge (sorry...Aussie)!! Stu Parker here, just wanted to say I'm reealllly loving your archives. Yours shots have astounding composition and something I just can't put my finger on... love it. Missing the crew, the new digs just aren't the same
This is a great capture - just look at all that spray. Perfect.
nice one! what exactly are the flags? they mark a swimming area?
Aussie: Yes they divide the safe swimming from where the rips are. The flags are yellow and red. The whole beach can look calm and safe but the under current can pull you out in seconds if you stray. If the beach is totally unsafe they put out red flags. Recently they are finding that non english speaking tourists just not getting the message and are looking at new ways to mark the dangerous areas. Flags are the easiest because they are so easy to move as the tides and rips change position.
Great action shot, Aussie - you really caught this one!

The thing Stu can't put his finger on, is your failure to fail. Always a great or better picture smile
