I know people won't get this and I'll get a load of "nice photo but it doesn't fit the challenge" comments. Screw it.

Think about it a moment...The surfer is balanced on the edge of a piece of fiberglass that is balanced on the edge of a wave. ALSO there is the edge between solid and liquid.

Great capture - and anyone disputing challenge relevance should be made to surf in shark-infested waters. Definitely would do well in the Action challenge - excellent.

nice action capture, clarity and color good, like the right arm and the balance of the composition

Great shot: I feel the motion, hear the waves and how the surfer has to "work" to stay on the edge.
Technically it's flawless: crisp, great contrast and color and well cropped too.
Probably a winner, for me at least. Good Luck!

The water seems real grainy. Too much post processing? Nice action shot, I like the capture of the splashing.
