The 2019 Rip Curl Nationals is coming up in May. Intense competition is expected as it’s also the team trials for the 2020 Olympics. It will be the first time that surfing is an Olympic event, so excitement is pretty high.
This means everyone who’s suffering from surf envy is either learning to surf, hoping to surf or wanting to surf.
In my case, I’ll keep my surf envy in check and go directly to telephoto lens envy. It should be a great event for sports photography. So says the gal who’s never done it before but intends to try. With or without a telephoto lens.
