Great stop action with that spray behind! I also like the different shades of blue in the water. Looks like a blast to shoot!!

Fantastic! As is your whole collection of surfing shots. Great finish - this would have ribboned in a sports themed challenge, I believe.

Been enjoying a book of Leroy Grannis' photogaphy, so I'm primed for some good surf photography. The cold winter here doesn't hurt your cause either. Really good stop action photography.

Super action shot. Would crop a bit off at the left. exposure and focus looks good to me

great stop motion! Love the droplets of the wave all over the picture. IMO the centered surfer is making the shot less appealing, a little more water to the right would have shown me the complete wave formation and added a wow element to the shot! 6

Super shot--know how difficult it is to get the focus and exposure right on. A little less water on the right might have helped the composition
