Thank you all for your comments.

I live next to one of the best places for surfing in Greece and I get to see the surfing beach in every season and time of day (which makes me wish I had a 400mm zoom... ;)

The sun was directly opposite of us and there were also some clouds, thus the strange lighting on the waves. Unfortunately, I overdid it with the Shadows/Highlights and there really are halos over the sails as mom2two points out.

I love the way you have captured the waves through your post-processing

There are halos around the sails on these I don't know why that would happen but it is distracting.
