The Opportunity to Play

“Do you know what my favorite part of the game is?
The opportunity to play.”
~ Mike Singletary

Back from Roxy Pro Biarritz 2012, with hundreds of images to edit and caption. Although some of the best female surfers in the world were competing at the event, I want to defend the real nature of sport and remind that competition, in many occasions, can make us forget what is really important about practicing any discipline.

Therefore, I will start sharing this photographs, portraying talented amateur surfers, who enjoy the moment and give me the chance to capture a unique action, in time and space. More images and posts will come, with popular faces, such as our favorite, Carissa Moore, Sally Fiztgibbons and the winner, Stephanie Gilmore.

De vuelta del Roxy Pro Biarritz 2012, con cientos de imágenes que editar y procesar. A pesar de que las mejores surfistas del mundo estaban presentes en el evento, quiero defender la verdadera naturaleza del deporte y recordar que la competición, en ocasiones, puede hacernos olvidar lo realmente esencial de la práctica de cualquier disciplina.

Por estar razón, comiendo publicando estas fotografías, donde retrato a surfistas amateurs, quienes disfrutan del momento y me regalan la oportunidad de capturar una acción única, en el tiempo y el espacio. Vendrán otras fotos y otros posts, con caras populares, como la de nuestra favorita, Carissa Moore, Sally Fiztgibbons y la ganadora, Stephanie Gilmore.
