Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Kariotahi Surf Patrol Boat

Another image taken at Kariotahi Beach, near Waiuku, south of Auckland, New Zealand.  Volunteer surf patrols are common and necessary on New Zealand’s wild west coast beaches.  Young men and women give up their weekends to patrol the beaches from surf clubs based at the most popular spots along the coast.  Rubber boats like the one in the picture are used to get out through the waves to patrol the surf and rescue people in distress, usually from being pulled out into deep water by tidal rips.
