These kite surfers were out in some pretty rough Pacific surf and quite high winds but seemed to be loving it. The shining blue sea, blue sky, crashing wave, and colorful kites seems to all harmonize well in this photo.

unique shot- I like the sails catching your eye, and pulling you in.

Strange. I actually find the kite/sail things distracting from this image. It wouldve been great as a picture of the sea alone, the waves at the front are very dynamic.

That, or a close up of one of the guys in the sea but i think youd need about a 4000mm lens... maybe you could borrow the Hubble?

I like the motion and range here, I just wish the people were bigger so they're given more priority in the photo

Too far away to see much of anything

I can see the scene, but wish I could see more detail of the action. It's all a bit too distant to keep my interest.

Tough shot but you can see them having a BLAST!
