Crunch time at Llandudno – Flickr pic of the day


This great action shot was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Greg Beadle aka through-my-lens.

Greg says, “This image was captured at the annual Llandudno 8 Man Challenge. Teams of eight lifesavers participate. Team members’ names are drawn out of a hat for various lifesaving disciplines. So participants arrive on the day not knowing which races they will have to take part in for their teams.”

“That day, the south-easter was pumping and the shore break was its usual nasty self. The paddler above managed to swing his paddle ski away from the other paddler just in time!

“I have been living in Cape Town for 10 years now and love everything about it, especially the people. Most of us know how lucky we are to live in these beautiful surroundings and are proud to share Cape Town with visitors from all over the world,” he continues.

Llandudno offers spectacular sunsets and bracing cold water. This is a popular surf spot, though not for beginners, and conditions can sometimes be unsuitable for swimming.
