Natinoal Geo extreme photo of the week!

Over the weekend I was contacted by National Geo online to provide a quote that they could use for the shot above so they could publish it as their 'Extreme Photo of the Week' . I was in the Bahamas at the time so I slowly downloaded the shot to see what one it was and fired them an email back. It was online on Monday so that was cool to see. Amazing how much more exposure and response photos get when they bridge the gap from kayaking media and make it into main stream media. Cheers to Tim Ripper for shooting this sweet shot and thanks to all to boys out there that day! It was a sick mission! Check out the page here..
