What happens to the back side of the wave
• What happens to the back of the wave of
A lot of things have a very beautiful nature. Something you can just see that something can only be seen under a microscope or through binoculars. Sometimes, you need to wait for months or years.
One of the manifestations of the elements, the waves can be seen standing on the beach or floating in a boat. You can watch as surfers ride the waves, but you probably do not even know what's going on with the back of the waves of the water. And there, I tell you, there is one of the most beautiful, spectacular, dangerous and impressive sights I have ever seen in my life.
In between waves and surf photography, I dived to the bottom of the reef, turn around and lie down on it, and me was the wave grew, broke and exploded under water millions of bubbles. Photos from the bottom of the reef of the island of Mauritius in the first row.
The bottom of almost all the spot where surfers ride on Mavrikii- this coral reef. The depth depends on the tide, but rarely more than two meters, so that the chance of ragged reef is very high both in skating and shooting. At the bottom of the photo on the spot Ambulant.
Here it is clearly seen that the depth at the point where the wave rises slightly larger belt. A FTA-it is sharp as a plurality of blades.
About myself reef would cost to write separately. He's always different. For example, on the spot Yakor- this set of thin and fragile coral branches, sometimes simply overgrown. And Ambulante and the famous One Eye, where we rented windsurfing, there are deep cracks, fractures, in which you can hide in case of the arrival of a very large set of waves.
It looks beautiful reef naveroyatno! Snimat- not make a copy! A lot of plants with very intense color.
In addition, the reefs there are many fish. Sometimes the pursuit of one, shoot it, and then comes up - and there it goes!
Big waves always come sets, that is, on some pieces. That is, you're in the ocean, I found a convenient place, waiting for the surfer, and they, in turn, waiting for the set. And now, it comes. Sometimes three, five, seven waves. Sometimes more. And only manage pronyrivat and shoot.
In the photo you can see how it is sometimes deep on the reef "One Eye". One of the worst shots of Olya Raskina despite the fact that I can see, but she could not open her eyes because the lenses. Maybe it's for the best - see the coral bottom inches from the face
And around such beauty. What shapes, colors!
A man has to contend with the elements, although the word struggle here is not very suitable. can not overcome the ocean. You need to contemplate and relax. As fish. That's when you start to feel comfortable even on the reef, even when the water up to his waist.
The next step for me will be shot out of the water surfing. I already have an idea for your book box Nikon D4 and a special attachment for the lens fish-ah.
But, as can be seen above the water. Local surfer calls in the tube and going straight at me
I pronyrivayu wave and his board flies past me literally two feet. In good, you need to use a special helmet, as the fins at a speed similar to a knife blade.
By the way, the worst thing - this is not the first wave, and the next, when the water becomes completely dark due to air bubbles and foam, which does not transmit light. You do not even see his own hand. Pro chamber at such moments sometimes forget
Olya in the foam box.
Come on. All I fib. Quite nyashnye, nice and quiet!
around your swimming fish, swim close interest
Sometimes swim to the reef, good-natured dolphins, but it's better to take them away from the shore and in the early morning, until the water turbid. Danger from sharks in Mauritius there. Anyway, I do not know of attacks, but here in Moscow told me that one of the spots where I was shooting, saw several large hammerhead sharks. Local not surf there and say a little further on is a gathering place for shark. Well, I have not seen, and it pleases.
At the bottom you can sometimes find parts of the boat. Quiet calm.
It is not the wave comes and you do not find yourself in the depths of the reef, swim there in the pursuit of a beautiful fish!
Well, a sharp reef, so you still feel at times like a minefield - around some sea urchins. That is kind of dno- here it is, a step and can not stand. Problems from a needle urchin then will not be gathered. There are more venomous fish and the like. In general, a complete set!
By the way, the wave on the spot "Anchor", which according to local, live sharks. Wave outside view.
A wave of fractions of a second, inside view
If the wave surfer to crumble, the only chance to make it pronyrnut- duck dive. It is necessary to drown the foot board and to dive for it
And you're such a quiet swim like a fish, watch the corals, which play the rays of the dawn sun. Lepota!
That is the bottom on the spot "Anchor". Very much different from the reef to the "One Eye" or Ambulant where nothing vysokogo- all broken waves
someone has left a big brain
When the depth allows, I tried zanyrnut deeper and remove the "space"

Olga Raskin pronyrivaet wave. Full sun is high and shines vertically on me
One step for man. The entire wall left- wave. Its height about 3-4 meters. On the boat it is seems small, but the water looks like a truck that flies at you with great speed. and it does not matter, you take off or skate
If the chances to do duck dive there, you just need to dive and paddle! On a photo of a wave drags board Olga Raskin deep reef. All boards are attached to the foot by a leash, otherwise they would be swept by the first drop.
Ocean changed his plane
Peter and Olga Raskin Tyushkevich synchronously pronyrivayut wave, although it turned out that both just give each other it.
Another shot outside. It's time to have to dive into the wave, and I can not stop
But the view from behind. Shakhov Anya withdrew the same time with me in the frame. Note that the wave front of Petya began to crumble too ...
I pronyrivayu and continue to shoot and see how Petya a tidal wave. In the frame is visible and the board leash. Rider himself somewhere in the depths of the bubbles
Elijah Vinokurov- organizer kite camp Mauritius Kite Jam, which was held in the same place
They are out there and ride, and you lay yourself on the bottom and watch the explosions
Sometimes it pops up to take a breath and take another ride. Sergei Maui, who moved to live in Hawaii. Taken literally butt. Wave has already started to raise me.
And that, right there, among the urchins, reds - is the Order of starfish on the bottom spot Ambulant.
