There were a few guys para-surfing ( if that's what it's realy called ) at the mouth of San Francisco Bay. They would get up a good head of steam, and let their sails rise above them and be lifted out of the water. It seemed like a good day for their activity, but not so great for photography, but I wanted to include this shot in the travel gallery because I enjoyed watching them so much. This shot was taken with a 300mm lens and a 1.4X converter.

Since posting these pictures, I have learned that this sport is called kiteboarding and is onte of those extreme sports that while dangerous is becoming quite popular. Not im my circles yet!
