I took this yesterday late afternoon in Port Douglas, far North Queensland, Australia. These are four members of the Port Douglas Surf Club out training on surf ski kayaks used for surf rescue. Super light weight, agile, and slim they have a rudder operated by foot pedal. Yesterday was choppy water and I could see them disappearing between waves. I clicked away and got this result which trust me is real and not cut and paste !!
The other amazing thing is these waters are home to saltwater crocodiles; top of the food chain.
These guys were only out for about 30 minutes but that's 30 minutes longer than I would go in that water or even close to the waters edge.
