Lost my original password and my old email doesn't work, so I had to create a new Dgrin account. Anyhoo, I'm here again. This time a few from the Hurley 30 event, which took place this weekend. I was full of flu, and it was freezing cold, so I was tried to capture what I could. Captured with a Canon 60D and a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 (none IS).

Wow, for no IS you captured some great action. I especially like the high-five in #8 - and I'm pretty sure that the guy in #10 was also in Augsburg. I think he's a Spanish champion. I guess the top-level kayaking world is pretty small, huh?
Thanks Sara! Yeah, the kayaking world is pretty small. The guy in No.10 is the world champion Quim Fontane Maso. But what's great is that in these competitions people just starting out can compete alongside the top guys in the world. It's a fantastic sport because of that.
