Thanks guys for all the comments! I really love this shot, so simple with its lines. The only editing I did was selective colours, crop and sharpen.

Only lost one lens and camera body on this trip!! !lol

It was not taken from Land Dirt!

I was going to ask what your vantage point was for this type of shot, but I see it wasn't the land so presumably you are are on some sort of boat? And don't tell me you dropped a camera+lens into the drink!

I knew this was yours even before I saw the name ;) Gorgeous as always.
Are you in the water with flippers and water housing now??? Hope you are shopping some of these images to the surf magazine community :)

Amazing shot! Congrats on the Blue!
The power in the surge, the diagonals, the blue/green gradient in the water, the contrasting red and reflection - so many things working well together! Amazing!

interesting angle to make a relatively small wave look gigantic.
nice colors and the red wetsuit makes the surfer pop.
