Thanks Jenny!!

I'm proud of this one because my SON is riding the wave and it was my FIRST win here at BetterPhoto.

I have a towel handy when I photograph the flowboarder's. Some like to soak the crowd just for fun. Other's do it by accident. When they see me with my camera they are kind enough to try not and get me wet.

Thanks again,

Donna
