Thank! I used the 150-500 on this day because the day before was pretty much a disaster with a manual focus 800mm. Too much....focusing...and not much "in" focus :-)

Great shot. I wonder which is harder you getting the shot or the dude staying up on the surf board.

Surfing is mostly skill. Photographing it is mostly luck.

This is what not to do...

Nice image in the 1st post. I just feel that it should be either more zoomed in on the surfer to accentuate his emotion or more zoomed out to show more of the wave. Wither way, nice pic.

The first pic captures the size of the waves nicely, I like!
