That is a great result! I took some surfing photos in Hawaii for the first time in December, but not with results like this one. Well done.

Nice shot!
I've been wanting to get back out and do some surfing photos again myself. I've shot at the Roxy Pro down here is Australia a few times, always great action .

Thanks for sharing

That's an action shot! The perfect moment, with her horizontal position and full concentration in this dramatic turn. Her board's spray and the wave provide the balance of the water, and her gaze looking towards the pipe commands the image. A difficult to arrange composition. Well executed. Thanks.

Lot's of patience on your part! How long did it take for that shot to be just right where you could get the composition so perfect?
