Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Catching a Wave
The setting sun brightened the palm-trees and warmed Brad’s back as he sat straddling a branch and gazing out to sea.
“Yeah, it’s pretty dark on the horizon, but it’s calm here. No sign of the waves getting up. I just hope they hang fire until tomorrow.”
He listened to the reply from his cellphone and laughed.
“Quit worrying, Angie. The condo is eighteen metres above the sea; the forecast storm surge is nine metres. It won’t even be close.” He flipped his phone shut.
His eyes glowed. Surfing the surge of an onrushing hurricane would be the ultimate thrill.
