this is awesome. You can see where the board pushed in to the wave.

Nice action, good capture. Would have been even better if we could see the face to the rider. All this imo, obviously. Good luck!

What a great shot!, I love the shapes left on the surface of the water, they seems graved in the water.

when I clicked ten on this I got splashed. Well I can smell the ocean.

Nice catch. Wish the top and right extreems of the wave/splash weren't off the edge of the pict - it confines the exuberant action of the surfer.

spectacularly well captured

Nice work, nothing that is really blowing me away though, maybe I am a bit spoiled, I am comparing this to the shot that beat me in "sports II" but still pretty good, I would have been glad to capture this. Feel that I might have liked this a bit better if the face would have been as dominant as the ass of the person surfing :P

Great action.

A different crop might have helped IMO. Maybe with the surfer more to the right of the photo and empty wave/water to the left. 5
