I usually come up speechless with surfing shots. They are wonderful, but how many ways can a person find to say so (especially if one is not a surfer!)
However, this, of course, is NOT a surfing shot...but well...
I have plenty to say about this, Dennis: The way the water action almost seems like a Poseidon Adventure moment; the great clarity of your capture, the composition, and the fact that his knickers are catching the wind in such a fascinating way! I'm thinking this will be a winner, Dennis. But surely a favorite!

Jeepers Jeff & Michelle!!

Good to see you made it to the waterski park to catch this slalom star.

Many, many thanks for your "Outstanding" wrap Jeff and for your "Poseidon Adventure" reference and great feedback Michelle.
