Piha surfers 06

A surfer seen from above in the middle of the pattern create by the froth of a wave. Number 6 of the series of pictures "Piha surfers" took at Piha black sand beach in New Zealand. This place close to Auckland is one of the most popular spots for surfers. This is also one of the most dangerous spots due to the rip currents which are very unpredictable. The New Zealand reality television show on the surf life savers called "Piha Rescue" is filmed there.
