Photographer's Note

While waiting for sunset in Boracay Island, Province of Aklan, I watched young men and women try their surfing skills.

They call it "skip surfing" in which they use a surfboard about half the size of the usual surfboard. They place it under their feet, slide upon the water once they see waves building up, then they surge towards the wave. I was lucky to catch this surfer, clicked the camera just as a cleared the wave, while his feet left the surfboard, creating a big splash of water as a result. He landed safely on the board after this shot, eliciting the applause of the enthralled public.

Boracay continues to be one of my favorite beaches in the country. It offers pristine white sand and clear waters during daytime, romantic, sporty sunsets and good food plus neat party places at night!

Note: I stayed the exposure to default 0 setting in taking this shot, but the faster shutter speed was to capture the fast action and to compensate for lack of light. I used a UV filter on top of PLL filter, which is probably why the sunlight turned out crisp and clear.
